    WriteShop Junior, or Level D, continues the same incremental, step-by-step approach that has been such a success throughout the WriteShop program. It is designed for parents and children to use in close conjunction while focusing on 10 specific skills: letter of invitation, humor, adventure, science fiction, mystery, haiku, folktales, historical fiction, personal narrative, and expository writing. Level D also has handy scheduling options laid out for you to choose from, so you can determine whether a 3 week/lesson, 30 week plan or a 2 week/lesson, 20 week plan will fit better into your schooling. It is suggested that an 8 to 11 year-old student would begin with WriteShop Level D if they needed to learn to identify and use proper grammar and punctuation, how to choose strong words, brainstorming before writing, writing a paragraph, writing research-based articles, or self-editing and revision of his own work. This level can also be stretched into 6th and 7th grades if the students in those grade levels have no prior writing experience. The teacher's guide contains the schedules, materials and supplies lists, teaching tips for hands-on projects and the writing skills used throughout the book, the body of each lesson and instructions for all activities. The student's activity pack includes worksheets for use with each lesson and the Level 1 Fold-N-Go Grammar Pack for making 10 portable grammar and writing reference guides. Permission is granted for copying worksheet and Fold-N-Go pages for single-family use. – Zach

    A Simply Grammar-like course for a younger child, again following the Charlotte Mason approach. It contains everything you need for language arts - wholesome classic literature excerpts, narration, dictation, memorization, and composition. Lessons are self-contained and the book is very easy to use with short, manageable exercises and assignments. Like Simply Grammar, this volume is also a revision of an older book, complete with quaint, but stimulating, period illustrations.

    Have you ever used a book and just kept thinking about the changes you would make? Perhaps that was the experience of Margot Davidson. Taking a classic – Primary Language Lessons by Emma Serl – she tweaked it just a bit. The result is all the warmth of the original with just a little more practicality, more beauty, and more applicability. The same wonderful balance between oral and written work has been preserved along with all the basic elements – copywork/dictation, picture study, memorization selections, grammar sequences, and composition. Some of the pictures are now in full color, and some are changed to appeal more to young readers. Also, some changes were made to bring it in line with today's English. Already flexible (could be used as either a full third grade course or spread over second and third grade), some of the exercises toward the end of the 164 lessons have been broadened, making them more appropriate for students at the end of third grade. Perhaps the most noticeable change is the typesetting, which is modern; the pages having much more "white space" and an added coil-binding making it so much easier to use for copywork or for "teacherwork." ~ Janice

    Primary Language Lessons is one of those engaging programs first published long ago that many have used and loved and said "if only". If only the book would lay flat. If only the course had room for the student to write. If only I didn't have to explain why "tomorrow" has a hyphen after the "o". If only there were some information about the authors and artists. If only this art print were a little clearer – or a little bigger. This newest version will sweep away all your "if onlys". And, the really good news is that none of the well-loved features of the original have disappeared. Content – right down to all the high quality art and literature – is virtually the same, except for those few updates and edits done to provide more clarity. Each lesson still introduces principals of grammar and word use through question and answer dialogue, composition, memorization, oral presentation, and dictation. There's even a few added features you might not have thought to include in your litany of "if onlys." Cute little icons have been added to each segment of the lesson to designate its purpose – read, write, memorize, copy, tell/narrate, or study. Tear-out pages in the back provide copies of all the dictation passages. Lots of lined space for all written assignments is provided. My favorite feature is the fourteen pages of biographical notes on most of the authors and artists found in the back. 258 pgs, coil-bound ~ Janice

    Skills center on the ability to complete different types of sentences and designate the proper usage of nouns, pronouns, and verbs in those sentences. Students also learn about different types of writing, such as fairy tales, folk tales, fables, legends and myths. They will be introduced to the media and differences in facts and opinions as well as differing points of view. Homophones, homographs and compound words are the spelling focus. They will also master beginning research, writing and speaking skills.

    "Modeling Writing after Great Works of World Literature Vol. 1." If you're learning to write, why not learn from the best? It's a great concept that's well-implemented in this new writing offering by Jill J. Dixon, B.S. Ed., M.Ed. Focusing on descriptive writing, Jill has chosen some of the best literary passages as models, including excerpts from:

    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Describing an Object)

    A Christmas Carol (Describing a Place)

    Robinson Crusoe (Describing a Character)

    Wind in the Willows (Writing a Dialogue)

    "Gift of the Magi" (Writing a Short Story)

    "Ants and the Grasshopper" and "Shepherd's Boy and the Wolf" (Writing a Fable)

    "Paul Revere's Ride (Writing Poetry - Ballad or Narrative)

    Each of these nine units is broken into ten 15-to-45-minute daily lessons - though Jill cautions not to progress too quickly if a child has not mastered a skill. Objectives for each day are asterisked and should be read by the teacher before beginning each unit. Since lessons are addressed directly to the student, the program will require minimal teacher time in actually completing each lesson. You will need to do some preparatory instruction, dictation (once per unit), and check work completed. Each unit begins with an excerpt from a "classic", includes a good amount of grammar (parts of speech) instruction, some mechanics, has the student find another good example of the genre being studied (and doing some comparative / grammatical analysis), and culminates with student writing and proofreading. Every unit also includes a dictation exercise from the included (or another) classic excerpt. The student is then to check his result against the written copy. Units are systematic, instruction is clear, and the whole course is well-organized and ready to pick up and go. Jill has included several helps and references also, in the back of the volume. The first is a sheet on "The Characteristics that Make the Best Writing The Best". This is used as the basis for discussion of supplied and found excerpts. A proofreading checklist is included to encourage and help with self-editing. For the parent is a helpful sheet on grading criteria. My only dispute with this is the point (out of five) given for having a "topic sentence at the beginning and a concluding sentence at the end of each paragraph". Just skimming the excerpts included confirm much "great" writing is not "formula" writing. I agree that a beginning writer may need to start out this way - but it makes for boring writing if you insist each paragraph be structured so. Additional Literary Passages for Modeling Writing are included and listed by genre so that you can continue or reuse these lessons again and again with different literature, if desired. For the teacher and student is a How to Write Guide that takes you through the steps for each type of writing. And, lastly, a key to the parts of speech exercises in included for you. All in all, there is a fair amount of grammar and mechanics instruction included in this volume in the context of writing and proofreading, though the author suggests supplementing with Easy Grammar, Daily Grams, Editor in Chief or Great Editing Adventures if you feel you need more specific or intensive instruction. Other recommended materials are a dictionary and thesaurus for each student. A writing or grammar handbook would also be helpful - especially if your skills are a little rusty. Permission to reproduce is given for the excerpts and the proofreading checklist. These are the only consumable components, and each student will need his own. All in all, this program looks like a well-organized, easy to use, effective writing program that I'm personally eager to try!
