At first dubious about this program after finishing the first book I began to see the brilliant way this series is organized to teach kids incremental skills in writing Never having been taught how to write creatively in my public school experience I learned as much as the kids I have reluctant writers and though they sometimes balked at doing any writing this program leaves kids the freedom to write about what really interests them within parameters designed to teach new skills Also the daily assignments are short usually 15-20 minutes spent reading the assignment and then writing which makes it more manageable for unenthusiastic kids I love that the program is non-consumable and therefore affordable I highly recommend the instructor book "Evaluating Writing"

Perfect for teaching writing
This curriculum is so easy to use and implement. It is open and go, gives lessons in easy increments, and has just enough flexibility so that you and/or your child can be as creative as you would like (or not) within each lesson. This will help you teach your child to learn how to structure and organize ideas into complete, creative sentences which help them progress into paragraph and full stories/papers. No frills, but straight to the point, bare bones in teaching basic writing (composition) skills.

This book teaches that basics of writing. It starts with basic sentences and teaches how to add description and eventually writing paragraphs. I have used this with older kids.

My husband has a PhD in English, and he likes the genre-based approach to teaching writing. I read about Writing Strands in The Well-Trained Mind and decided to try this program.

Recommended by Susan Wise Bauer (author of The Well-Trained Mind) and the exercises sounded fun for my second-grader.

Book 3 was too difficult for the 11 year old that we have custody of.

My daughter is entering 3rd grade and can independently write a sentence. (She can chat forever on any given topic, but when asked to write her thoughts down, she will condense all she has to say into one basic 5-7-word sentence using the shortest, simplest words possible.) Which level of Writing Strands would you recommend? I am leaning towards Level 2.
A shopper on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My 3 rd grade son also condenses a sentence into 5-7 words. That is fine for this age. We use Writing Strands Level 2 as a supplement only to our main writing which is Writing With Ease Level 3. I would only use Writing Strands alone if the child really loves creative writing. My son likes it but does not love it.
