Curricula Series 2013-2014: Writing and Grammar

Our Writing and Grammar Choices

Creative Writing (3 times per week)
I finally decided on a writing curricula. I think this program will be a perfect fit for us.
WriteShop B Teacher's Guide and Activity Pack B

Handwriting (2 times per week for no more than 10-15 minutes)
This year we will focus more on cursive letter formation. I reviewed PreScripts Words and Drawing from Classical Conversations several months ago. I was throughly impressed with the book. I decided to slow things down for Alyssa and start with the first book. We will use the PreScripts Letters and Coloring book this year at a slower pace. If we have time this year, then we will continue using the second book in the series.

Copywork (3 times per week 5-15 minutes)
We have a variety of copywork resources that we will choose from this year.
Grammar and Vocabulary

Wordly Wise Vocabulary Flashcards by Educators Publishing Service (FREE)

Supplemental Resources

Mama and Me Journal
We used to do this as a family using the mini mailboxes found in Target's dollar area. We will try the journal approach this year. IEW (PAL) also incorporates a writing journal into the daily lessons.

Wish List
Happy Scribe Combo 3 - Classical History Education from Westvon Publishing

What curriculum are you using for writing and grammar? 

God bless,
