I usually write a few reviews every now and then, but this is a WriteShop Preview since we’re just a few lessons into the new curriculum.
Constructing the mini lapbooks from the Fold-N-Go Grammar Pack has been fabulous reinforcement for my visual hands-on learner.
For a boy who had no desire to edit his own work, nor could remember where commas went … this curriculum has changed all that! I have gone on and on about “tactile learning”, but my son is also just as much a visual learner too! And easily discouraged with pages of work. These sheets are vibrant, not overwhelming, and easy to flip through!
What “language arts” curriculum includes games?? I thought “English” was supposed to be boring?!
WriteShop even makes the games easy by offering a Time Saver Pack (print or ebook) for quick use. We have laughed our way through Funny Situation Sentence Starters a few times now. (I recommend laminating these for future use).
I appreciate that the boy is learning he can be a good writer without relying on “bathroom humor” that is so popular in “family friendly” movies.
My son’s love language is quality time. The discussion opportunities included in WriteShop curriculum are the best I’ve seen yet! (this was greatly missing in Daily Grams)
The journal prompts and writing have been a fun adventure as well. I’m grateful since my cool 10yr old couldn’t stop groaning and eye rolling through other curriculum’s goofy sentences.
This week he’ll be writing about a bat, boa, and tarantulas on an Amazon Jungle adventure. I’ve already recommended WriteShop to a few of my local homeschool friends! Be sure to follow WriteShop on Facebook – the updates are brilliant!
