Sheri5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Resource!May 19, 2016SheriQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This program is extremely comprehensive. So much so, we've taken two years to use this one book for 5th and 6th grades. If you have a gifted writer, or someone who loves writing, you can do this in one year. For your average or reluctant writer, you can easily make this last two years. This is an independent writing program which removes the parent/teacher as the "critical eye" and requires the student to use a rubric to complete their work. I can't imagine doing the program without the teacher's guide. The teacher's guide has scripts to follow and requires no preparation on your part. I've compared it to other popular programs, even classical programs and none have been as thorough or comprehensive as this one. You will need to have some basic grammar knowledge for some of the exercises, like objects of the preposition and direct objects. For example, the author teaches how to change passive verbs into active, and vice versa, by modifying parts of speech. This program incorporates a lot of reading (literature, scientific and historical writings), but nothing that is overwhelming. If your student loves to read, this program is an excellent fit. We plan on using the next two levels.
