Dictations are more suited to higher grades Dec 1 2011
By Heather E. Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My children have used the Writing With Ease workbooks from the beginning, but the Level 4 workbook includes dictations that are sometimes 6 lines long. We always have to split the dictations into sections, and often neither me nor my husband can remember them, so it is hard to expect my 9 year old to. I would recommend Levels 1-3, but I would only recommend Level 4 to children who can easily remember text...otherwise, it's extremely time consuming and frustrating.

Great curriculum Nov. 24 2010
By L. Hanson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this curriculum. My son has completed Levels 1 through 3 and is now working on Level 4. He is completely writing his own narration summaries. This series starts out with your child narrating his summaries for you to write down (Level 1) and then gradually moves the child to writing on his own. At the beginning of Level 4, your child is expected to write the first one or two sentences of his narration on his own, but it also allows a lot of flexibility depending on your child's skill level. Level 4 stretches the child's ability to remember long dictations, and the dictations are more complicated than in the previous levels. Dictations often include dialogue. The reading passages are interesting and come from wonderful books. My son often looks for the books introduced in the passages to read on his own. The passages come from a mix of fiction and nonfiction works. The lessons are short and focused. This level was more expensive than those I have purchased in the past -- maybe because it was just recently published? At any rate, it is well worth it as it saves me a lot of time.

Writing With Ease Workbook Level 4 Feb. 7 2013
By Jennifer Schwarz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I originally ordered the teacher manual because the ideas for the lessons were all included. I soon found out that I didn't care to be looking for all the right passages for my children to use. This workbook has made it so much simpler. Now we are able to concentrate on learning the skills of narration and dictation which my older two had very little experience with in traditional school. After completing just a few weeks of the lessons in this workbook (they actually write in a separate notebook) I feel they have transitioned well from the "read a passage-take a test " style of learning they practiced for their first five & six years of schooling. I am confident they will learn well next year as we switch to "living books" for many of our subjects. I will save this for my younger two who began with level 1 this year.

Wonderful Writing Curriculum Dec 13 2011
By Julby - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This writing curriculum is wonderful. It is very complete, and my daughter enjoys it. Each week you read a section from a story, and your child writes, in their own words, what the story was about. There are also dictation exercises to be done during the week. I love the stories they give you to read in this book. It has sparked my daughter's interest in the books they read from. Our lessons usually only take about 15 minutes per day, so it's very doable. I also highly recommend using this with their grammar curriculum, "First Language Lessons." These two books compliment each other very well.

effectice & efficient Dec 17 2010
By Leila - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I use this book to improve my student's ability to write a concise, correct summary of a short passage that he has read. And this curriculum book helps me to do just that. In this way it is effective. Each lesson is 5-15 mins.

Some of the passages are compelling, and my student wants to investigate the novels from which they come. Others are not, and he slugs through, while I tell him that it is about the practice not how exciting it is. In this way it is a good life lesson.
