Skeeterbug has just finished Writing With Ease Level 1.
We are behind with this, it is entirely my fault. He should have started Level 2 this year. I didn’t keep up with it enough last year and we fell far behind. We have worked at it this year, completing two days at a time, in order to finish it early in the year. For now I am going to continue with this program, so we will be starting Level 2 the week after next (we’re taking a week off from school next week, we don’t follow the school terms). We’ll do a faster pace with it also in order to complete it this year (it’s a 36-week program).
I debated just jumping ahead to Level 2, but in the end decided to finish Level 1. The narration exercises in this level have been good for him, I can see it when we are narrating for other subjects. I also have Primary Arts of Language, which is a K-2 program by IEW, I plan to incorporate some lessons from that into our writing program. Then for grade three we’ll have to decide whether to continue with Writing With Ease or switch to IEW. Or something else altogether. 🙂
