Writing Strands has helped thousands of homeschooled children to effectively write and communicate in the "real world" as well as their academic lives. Writing Strands 1 is designed for very young children who can't write at all, and is comprised of a series of flexible exercises. Arranged from easiest to hardest, the exercises can be used at whatever level your child is at, for however long you feel that it's necessary--or as long as you both want to! From making up words to finishing sentences and stories, rhyming, discussing stories, visualization and other simple games and activities, your children will be encouraged in a love of language and reading. CD included. 27 pages, softcover, spiral bound.
