Writing Skills Grade 5 (Flash Kids Harcourt Family Learning)
Student lessons and assignments focus upon more extensive personal narratives, descriptive writing utilizing an expanded vocabulary, writing short stories, how-to or informative writing, comparative writing, and more work on short reports.
These materials contain both instruction and writing assignments but are not as broad in scope (types of writing) as the comprehensive programs.
Many students struggle to develop good writing skills, even in cases where they seem to grasp the fundamentals of grammar well. This workbook series provides students with age appropriate exercises that are designed to help them develop confidence and competency as writers. Each colorful and illustrated workbook provides guided instruction in relation to assignments that help students master various elements of the writing process. Helpful answer keys are also included in the back of each workbook. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
