Foundational writing program
I have been switching out writing programs for my 9 year old son for years. He has been bored at best and frustrated at worst. He had begun to "hate" writing. He is an advanced and avid reader, but had been having difficulty applying his abilities into writing. This program seems to have done the trick. The instructional textbook (hardcover) that is part of this series explains the process that needs to occur between thinking and writing. At times this intellectual process occurs without direct instruction. As with my son, and apparently many children, it is not a "natural" process of transferring thoughts directly to paper. I really do recommend this curriculum. It assumes nothing in terms of a child understanding how to put thoughts on paper in an organized, thoughtful way. The only reason for a 4 star versus 5 star review is that the process is slow at times, it it can easily be adapted though. I have definitely seen a change in my son's interest and knowledge of the writing process. It has also positively affected his ability to think and communicate things in a more mature way. Our discussions of content subjects, such as science and history, are more thoughtful and thorough. I am thrilled!

Highly recommend this! This is very easy to use coaches the teacher well and helps the student learn to THINK through the writing process Rather than starting out getting them to write a lot (which for my daughter would be torture) I do a lot of the physical writing and she is learning to think through what needs to be written Great literary passages are used to discuss too!

Continuing our homeschool journey and did well with level 1.
Jennifer C on Mar 30, 2019
My son is not interested in writing much and in fact really fights to do this. There were a lot of positive reviews regarding this as well as a recommendation at our homeschool co-op.
Matthew C on Oct 8, 2018
So easy to get a little writing in every day!

Currently finishing up Level 1 and really like it.
Lisa A on Mar 29, 2018
While I want to also encourage creative writing this was a great all in one simple activity that I could see us finishing without minimal resistance.
Lisa M on Jan 8, 2018
This was recommended to me. I am looking forward to the summary work.

Writing with Ease is an easy approach to the basic beginning of what it takes to be a good writing.
Genevie D on Jul 1, 2017
My son has enjoyed listening to the passages. Great selection of beautiful and fun stories. The narration and copywork exercises are just the right length and not overwhelming. Very helpful! :)
User on Jun 25, 2017
Because our 1st grader son loved the level 1. And so did his parents.
Yoshimi H on May 1, 2017
Love SWB.
Sheila D on Mar 12, 2017
I cannot afford IEW.... so I was looking for something more affordable, lessons in bite sizes, nicely incremental, with a good trajectory for Language Arts and Writing Comp. Not too easy, but not too bogged down either. I'm schooling 5 boys so I'm looking for something that builds gently and solidly. I've done Easy Grammar, which is pretty great and stress free. I want to give the First Language Lessons and Complete Writer Series a try. We will also be adding in Fix It Grammar for fun. Enjoy!
Kirstin G on Mar 9, 2017
My son looks forward to doing the Level 1 workbook every day. It is one of his favorite parts of our school day. Looking forward to Level 2!
Elly K on Jan 16, 2017
I purchased Level 1 last year, and the excerpts worked really well as copywork for my child. I especially appreciate that the excerpts focus on teaching a specific grammatical skill.
Shannon P on Jan 10, 2017
Used Level 1 and liked it.
Melissa M on Nov 27, 2016
This curriculum is working well for my kids, so we are going to keep using it. Very user friendly
sarah f on Nov 19, 2016
need something very concrete and structured for my middle schoolers who are struggling with writing
Pamela N on Sep 19, 2016
We started with Level 1 and it is an excellent beginning writing program.
Jennifer M on Sep 18, 2016
We used the Level 1 book last year and I wanted to continue with it this year.
Aimee K on Sep 8, 2016
Perfect pace and style for my daughter.
Josie B on Sep 3, 2016
We used Writing with Ease Level 1 and it worked very well. The reading passages are of high quality and inspired us to read many of the books from which they are excerpted. We've decided to stick with this program another year.
Molaika B on Aug 15, 2016
First time trying it. A friend recommended it.
Maranda S on Aug 13, 2016
required for class
Linda M on Aug 3, 2016
We moved through Writing with Ease L1 last year and I liked the program but writing the lessons myself was a lot time spent on at my work desk instead of with my kids. I wanted to try the workbook for year 2 to see how we like it.
Crystal K on Jul 30, 2016
I chose this because of the good reviews. I hope it works as well for us.
Warren D on Jul 11, 2016
Following the Well-Trained Mind. Level 1 was a great tool for my 6-year-old, and worked very well with First Language Lessons. We enjoyed the narration exercises so much we checked out nearly every book from which the passages came. Copy work was not the most exciting for him, but it gave him a strong foundation for using capital letters and punctuation.
Hilbert W on Jun 28, 2016
Great reviews
Dean B on Jun 25, 2016
I like the use of quality literature and the repetition is very helpful.
Michelle R on Jun 2, 2016
We have found these books to be useful for narration practice, exposure to literary passages (which lead to the children requesting the books to read the rest of the story), and penmanship practice. Although you can make copies, it is cheaper to buy a new copy for each child.
User on May 6, 2016
We've finished up the first book, and loved it, so we needed the next book.
Bernadette C on Apr 25, 2016
I love Well Trained Mind products.
Moira F on Apr 20, 2016
This curriculum exposes my daughter to good writing nearly every day, in a very natural way. Her memory and narration skills greatly improved 4 lessons from the end. So stick with it. It works!
Beckie M on Apr 7, 2016
We have enjoyed and moved quickly through level 1.
Elizabeth M on Mar 20, 2016
I used the Level 1 workbook with my daughter. She and I both enjoyed using it, and look forward to seeing what this new book holds.
Sarah G on Mar 13, 2016
We are continuing on with the second workbook in the Writing with Ease series. All of the teacher's instructions and student worksheets are included in this one book. It teaches proper grammar, correct punctuation and much more. We have been introduced to many popular classics with the story examples given each week. We are using this workbook along with the First Language Lessons which is a part of the classical education suggestions in the program "The Well-Trained Mind".
Linda G on Mar 7, 2016
A veteran homeschooling friend recommended this series to help with my son's writing.
Jennifer J on Jan 22, 2016
Another home school mom suggested it because my student is struggling with writing assignments
Karen G on Jan 17, 2016
We purchased this book because we love them. My children read a passage this week which left them begging me to read them all of Tom Sawyer to them after school.
Robin S on Jan 16, 2016
I chose this to keep me on track this year.

Do you have an option to just buy the student pages?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we do. Here's the link:
Do we need to purchase The Complete Writer and the Workbook? For instance I am interested in buying the Level 2 workbook and am wondering if the lessons in the workbook are also in the Complete Writer. Thanks!

Complete Writer: Writing with Ease Text L 1-4
Complete Writer: Writing with Ease Text L 1-4
BEST ANSWER: The complete writer text has all 4 levels in one book. It gives you all the lessons but you need to provide your own stories or written material for each lesson. A few pieces of written material is provided in each level but mainly you need to come up with your own.
The workbook has only one level in a book. All the lessons and written stories are in this book. You can just open the book and do each lesson without having to find supplemental material. The workbook also has consumable sheets in the back for the student to use with each lesson. We used just the workbook. We loved this curriculum.
Our local library carried the text book. I checked it out just to look at it. It is a great resource but everything needed for one level is in the workbook.
How many pages are the student pages for WW2? Wondering for cost of copying or do you sell as a consumable?
User on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are 178 Student Pages and yes, they are reproducible.
