    We liked it
    August 5, 2014

    I used this with my seven year old son. It was great for us. He really liked the stories (I did too) and listened attentively because most of them were very interesting. We checked out several books from the library so we could hear the rest of the story we started. My son really dislikes handwriting, but these were short enough that he could finish them without too much frustration. The tear out sheets were nice so we didn't battle the book closing problem. Not sure if I am going to get the next years book. Still thinking.

    Writing With Ease Work Book: Level 1 is authored by Susan Wise Bauer. She is a faculty member of the College of William and Mary, and co-author of "The Well Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home."

    Writing With Ease Work Book: Level 1 is a companion to Bauer's text "Writing With Ease: Strong Fundamentals." Please see my review of "Writing With Ease: Strong Fundamentals" for a comprehensive overview of the curriculum.

    Writing With Ease: Work Book Level 1 is arranged according to a thirty-six week schedule. Each week consists of the following components:

    Day 1

    Copy work

    Focus (This indicates the fundamentals of grammar being taught within the lesson.)

    Day 2

    Narration Exercise

    Day 3

    Copy work

    Focus (This indicates the fundamentals of grammar being taught within the lesson.)

    Day 4

    Narration Exercise and Copy work

    End of the Year Evaluation

    Included in the work book are a list of literature reading selections and consumable student pages.

    Overall we have been pleased with Ms. Bauer's logical approach to writing instruction, and look forward to utilizing "Writing With Ease Work Book: Level 2."

    This workbook is GREAT! I love that the student writing pages pull out, so my child doesn't have to worry about keeping the book from closing on him.

    I purchased this along with the book. I wish someone would have told me...The workbook basically has all the information that is in the book. So, you really don't need the book to understand the program (in my opinion anyways).

    Not a complete writing program

    I have now completed Year 1 and Year 2 with my oldest daughter. I think that this program if supplemented with a creative writing program like Just Write can be okay. But, not for the long term. I would only do 1 year of this program. The benefits of this program can be achieved in 1 year I think. The strengths of this program are that a child sees and imitates good grammar and spelling (copywork) and children practice answering questions with good spelling--setting them up to write and think in complete sentences. These are both very good things. But, children do not learn how to write paragraphs or receive any explicit instruction in years 1, 2, or 3 about how to structure and write a paragraph or add descriptive words to sentences. The instruction in this program is almost entirely implicit and I think students need both implicit and explicit instruction.

    We are very pleased with Writing With Ease Level One. We wish that it was around when our other children were younger. This is the kind of program that we have been searching for, for many a year. Thank you SWB!
