Product Description

Writing needs to be taught just like any other subject, and letting students be "free" to write without a model is often letting them jump in the deep end without learning to swim first!

Writing & Rhetoric assumes students learn best by reading excellent literature and improving their own writing skills by imitating those writers. For students who complete the entire program, they will read and learn to write narrative, expository, descriptive, and persuasive essays while developing a unique style; this book, Fable covers narrative writing. Each exercise is designed to teach a skill that can be employed across all subjects. Skills are arranged from simple to complex, and the cumulative nature of each chapter reviews skills from earlier in the book, helping students to build a solid foundation of writing skills.

In Fable, students will learn about the form of fables, discover culturally important examples, practice reading short texts, learn to copy accurately, strengthen their memory through dictation, gain opportunities to imitate sentences & fables, learn about the concepts of the main idea/character traits, and more.

Lessons start with the fable, and are followed by the student's narration of the story. The "Talk about It" section provides students with questions that require personal application and critical thinking. "Go Deeper" questions are multiple-choice questions that cover writing concepts and vocabulary in the piece. "Writing Time" exercises integrate copywork, dictation, "sentence play," and rewriting exercises.

154 non-reproducible pages, softcover. NIV Scripture used. This workbook is part of the Writing & Rhetoric curriculum and covers the narrative writing style; it is the first book in the series, and is designed for grades 3-4. Covers 1 semester.

    This series of books is new and not even complete yet. They will be producing two books per year until all 12 of the books have been published.

    I have struggled with teaching my children writing, as I have been a very poor writer over my life time. I have improved significantly the last several years, but am still uneasy teaching my children. We tried out some other curriculum that I was super excited about, but in the end I feel it was busy work rather than helpful in developing their writing capabilities.

    This year I started my 5th and 6th grader in this book and we've already made it through three lessons. They have been very excited about it and I feel I have been able to do a better job of explaining to them and giving them feedback through this format. I do not feel as though it is written too simply for them. I feel the book is set up where it can be easier for a child who is challenged or you can require more of an advanced child.

    Each lesson can be covered over the course of the week, generally spending 3-4 days per lesson. I tend to give them 2 days on the writing portion so they can give it more attention. Each book should be easily finished in a semester even if you need to skip it for a week.

    There are additional resources on the publishers website such as downloads of the fables to be read to the student. I do recommend using the teaching guide with the student edition. The teaching book gives full text of the student book as well as dictations and additional suggestions. However, the student book could probably be used without the teacher book. I highly recommend reading through the introductions and such prior to starting into this book with your student.

    The only negative I'd say is that to use two books in a year is a little pricey. The student book is consumable and not reproducible. Wish they'd combined two books into one so that perhaps the price could be a little more reasonable. I am sure they have a good reason for doing it the way they did.

    Depending on where your students writing ability is, you might be able to start off in a different book, but might miss some building blocks. Glad I started from the beginning even if it is for a "younger" age.
