    Pros:

    This book is printed on thick, quality paper.

    It's reproducible to use within a family.

    It teaches narration, copywork, and dictation very well.

    Cons:

    That's all it teaches--narration, copywork, and dictation.

    I like this approach as well as the next homeschooling mom, but I was hoping to get a break from the same pattern week after week. It would have been nice to have a lesson on "How to Write a Friendly Letter", or "Writing an Original Short Story". Granted, there are a few poems scattered throughout the book, but the objective is still to narrate, copy, and dictate. The student doesn't write an original poem.

    Bottom line:

    If you desire for your child to really hone his/her narration, copywork, and dication skills, then this may be the curriculum for you. If you'd like some variety, then look elsewhere, or spread this book over two years and supplement with something like WriteShop Junior.

    Writing With Ease Work Book: Level 2 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 2 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 2 is arranged according to a thirty-six week schedule.

    Each week consists of the following components:

    Day 1

    Narration Exercise

    (Identifying central ideas and actions.)

    Day 2

    Copy work Exercise

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

    Day 3

    The First Dictation Exercise

    Day 4

    Narration Exercise and Dictation

    (Identifying the central narrative in a story or passage. Identifying the central details in a description.)

    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 3."

    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!

    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.
