Easy, gentle approach to writing
We are only on week 7, but my 2nd grade daughter loves this program. Before we found this book, she would complain every time I mentioned the word writing. Now she happily pulls this book out. I love the gentle approach to writing (with a bit of grammar added as well). She enjoys the narratives so much that we have had to check several of the titles out from the library. I wish I had found this writing program sooner!

This product is wonderful!
I am enjoying the product so far and so are the boys. We have only done the first two weeks, the boys enjoy the stories and are starting to understand how to narrate a story that they read or hear.
