So far, the shortness of the daily lessons are doable. My son hates writing so this has been a great help by keeping it short.
This is not my favorite, my kids are never excited to work with this book. I think it gets the job done but it is not a very fun program. I do like how simple the instructions are and the layout is good.
He groans every time we take this one out 😂 but its honestly not a bad book to help with writing and sentence structure. He just hates writing.
My daughter didn't love this book series at first, but I absolutely love it. I think it does a great job of addressing the details and different areas of writing that she'll need to know. This year, she's giving me a lot less push back, so I guess she's gotten used to doing it.
My 8 year old struggles with writing. This workbook has been amazing for her. It’s very easy for her to understand and I like how it has instructions/ideas for the lessons prior to starting. This makes it easier for both of us.
