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.
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.
