Writing is a skill that needs to be taught, and WriteShop makes it easy for the homeschool parent. One lesson every three weeks, working three days per week, allows for focused instruction time in appropriately large quantities and helps to reduce frustration and ensure mastery; lesson plans for one lesson every two, and every week, are also included. Plans for teaching children at multiple levels and using different books are also provided, making life simpler for homeschoolers teaching multiple age ranges.
Lessons have a specific focus, with all the lessons in a book focused around a theme (with optional other themes designed to fit into common unit studies), lesson objectives, materials needed, advance prep, and guided activities sets and guided writing practice instructions. Semi-scripted lessons provide all you need, including questions, instructions, examples of completed work, reduced versions of the sold-separately WriteShop Primary Student Worksheet Pack, and other instructions.
This program is designed to be used incrementally, from each sold-separately Book A, B, and C. "Flying Higher" and "Want to Do More?" activities are provided for advanced students who want more of a challenge. Book A is recommended for 1st grade or a 2nd grader with limited writing experience. 186 pages, indexed, softcover, spiralbound.
Raising 3 boysAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very Simple to UseAugust 21, 2012Raising 3 boysAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I have three boys that struggle with reading and sitting still for "lesson time". This writing program is great because it hits all the fundamentals of writing but intermingles it with art type projects. The lessons are short and repetition is used often. This program does involve you sitting for about 10-15min to teach your child how to write, but it is simple. So far my sons really enjoy it and they are excited about writing time. If you have a very good reader/speller you can probably skip book A. My boys are still at the learning to read stage (6 & 7). The book is 10 lessons long and each lesson is taking us about 2 weeks to complete.
