My daughter is homeschooled and has used Spectrum books for various subjects. For some reason did not use the writing book in the proper year. When we did use is as an extra subject/cleaning up of materials she LOVED it. So I got her the rest of the books for the other grades. She is finishing a book below her grade level but I wanted her to have the skills of each grade before moving on to the proper grade level. She loves writing and these books give a basic training in different writing skills. I really wish they went to higher grade levels. I know she would enjoy them.

I am enjoying the lessons which are laid for each unit. This is great as a primary book or aid in homeschooling or for children enrolled in mainstream education.

Keeps them from forgetting what they learned the previous school year. Workbooks are great for getting the kids ready for the school year and they are not too expensive. Writing can sometimes be subjective as the English language is not perfect like most other languages..

This book does a good job helping to differentiate levels in my 6-8 multigrade classroom. A great resource to add to any writing curriculum.

This book starts with small paragraph writing to bigger and bigger ones. This is helping my son zone in on his writing skills which he will need entering into high school next year.
