5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Writing Workbook for Intermediate Learners Nov. 9 2009
By Jimmie Lanley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not a huge fan of workbooks, but in small doses, they can be effective. Writing Fabulous Sentences and Paragraphs is a good example of a helpful workbook. The exercises are brief and provide lots of opportunity for open ended response. My ten year old enjoys using this workbook, too.

I think it leans more toward the fourth/fifth grade level. It is a tad too simplistic for a sixth grader, unless you used it as a base to extend from. Even with my fifth grader, I don't consider the workbook ENOUGH writing instruction. But it gives some good writing topics and frameworks for organizing your thoughts (prewriting). Used as part of a larger language art curriculum, this book is a good resource.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Writing Help March 16 2007
By L. Freeman - Published on Amazon.com
This book breaks down the components of good sentence structure, writing complex sentences, and writing interesting sentences and paragraphs in a way that is easy to follow and understand. I'm using it for homeschooling, but it is also an excellent tool for enhancing what your child has already learned in school.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Tool for improving writting skills! April 9 2011

I rate it a 4 because the excercises aren't enough to keep practicing over and over again. I give a lesson to my son, and then go to printable sheets for him to keep practicing the new learned skill. Overall I love the book, it is very good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems like a great book. Jan. 9 2014
By Shauna Bryner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my son for next year (4th grade). He's a reluctant writer and still doesn't understand how to make a paragraph "flow". I like the pages that start a paragraph and have the child fill in the rest, giving 2 or 3 more sentence starters throughout (pgs. 64-69). I think this will help teach him to write more fluidly and not make it sound like he is making lists.

The book touches on complete and incomplete sentences, subjects and predicates, kinds of sentences, combining sentences, complex sentences, beginning sentences with a clause, adding details, using figurative language, and using similes, metaphors, personification, and alliteration. All of that is fit into the first ~1/3 of the book and the rest is about building paragraphs. This is definitely not a book for younger students just learning to write, unless you have other material to supplement the building blocks leading up to writing paragraphs. This book does not focus on spelling, and only a little on grammar and punctuation. It's more about learning to write in an engaging way. It also includes writing webs and how to organize details in paragraphs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really helped my son April 29 2013
By K. McFadden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 9 year old becuase although he was off hte charts inr eadin and spelling test etc.. he teachers fo thte past 2 years have mentioned he is not creative enough.. writing is nto his thing and he bores easily. We did a chapter every few days and because he didnt want to bother with it anymore he started doing better with his scentences ( creatively) at school. P-T conference last week confirmed it. Mission accomplished.
