I like this book a lot. It is nice to see something that is simple to use and gets children to understand how you need to correct writing and that it doesn't have to be painful. It takes about 5 minutes a day to do, probably 10 or 15 for a full class. Each paragraph is about 45 or 50 words long and they focus on a specific skill you can talk to your child about first. The child gets to be the teacher and make the corrections. As a former elementary school teacher, writing was difficult to teach for a whole class. I wanted to spend more time with each child. This book is great for a teacher, home school parent or a child that attends elementary school. My children attend elementary school and I use it at home in the morning before they go to school.
Monday through Thursday is when they correct the paragraphs, on Friday have a prompt to write about instead.
The only drawback is they have the answer key across from the paragraph you are correcting. So, you have to rip each page out as you use it.
I bought a grade 3 book for my other child.
