Books begin with "Teacher Notes," which contains helpful information like the supply list (colored pencils, pencil with good eraser and required resource books), teaching tips and a suggested schedule. A list of 12 Rules about Sentences follows which is integral to the lessons and serves as a valuable reference for student and teacher of the basics for good writing. Each leveled book is available in two options: Bible Story Edition or the Read Aloud Edition without Biblical content.
Book 2 builds on the concepts taught in Book 1. More in-depth coverage is given to grammar and sentence structure including: sentences vs sentence fragments; declarative, interrogative and exclamatory sentences; adjectives, adverbs, nouns, pronouns, verbs; synonyms, antonyms; story synopses; main ideas, and more. Writing lessons culminate with students writing themed paragraphs using their own words or the included prompts. Writing lines measure 3/8" and have a dotted center.
