I thought this was pretty good and I did see some improvement in my daughter's work after using it. She did get bored with it fairly quickly, though. I think we only ended up doing half the book because she begged to stop.
I thought "Editir In Chief" was a fantastic way of teaching kids how to get used to correcting their own work.
Editor can be a little tricky when looking for mistakes to correct. As a teacher I had to brush up on my grammar skills because I forgot a few rules and missed some of the corrections. She enjoys the stories a lot.
This book is great for those who already are confident in grammar and punctuation. It's challenging for those who aren't so confident. This book is better suited to not be a daily activity but more of a once weekly review.
Editor in Chief is a puzzle that my student usually enjoys. The student looks for the errors in a written selection. It is challenging! My son works independently as far as he can before asking for help. Sometimes I can find the missing errors and sometimes I cannot! This can be frustrating for my son, but we look up the answers in the key, learn from them, and move on.
