I bought this workbook for my 4th grade homeschooled child. We’re only about 1/3 of the way into the WB but it’s great. I think it presents writing concepts, like writing organized paragraphs, in a fun and user-friendly way. My daughter loves this writing book much more than the Scholastic program we used before. We also use the 3rd grade WB for my son. This probably won’t last us the entire year but we’ll try something else when we finish with this in a few months.
but never found a good fit for my son

As a homeschooler I have been very set in my curriculum choices, except when it comes to writing. I have used several different programs, but never found a good fit for my son. I really like this writing book and he is doing very well with it. It gives clear to follow lessons and then just the right amount of practice for each skill. It breaks down the writing process into small chunks as well as introduce different types of writing at very easy to understand grade level ways.
I buy lot of work books like this for summer study for my kids

I buy lot of work books like this for summer study for my kids. I noticed in the beginning when my kids started school that they forget lot of things that they haven learned during summer because of no study. And ever since I started buying these books for summer vacation, they are more confident when school starts again for the following year. And also during the whole summer vacation, they have nothing much to do except playing games so with this kind of books, it keeps them little busy.

Excellent job of explaining the basics of writing to kids of this age. The exercises are broken down into manageable pieces, trying to get kids to organize their thoughts before jumping in to writing.

Spectrum rock it again. I like this book, it has easy to understand (4th grade) tasks for writing practices. Everything is well organized and neat. Answer key on the back (sometimes answer key would say “answers will vary”, it would be nice to have at least SOME examples instead but still good enough!).

My 8 year old daughter absolutely loves this books and I don’t even have to ask her to do some school work on her off days. It’s very informative and well written and put together.
