This is a really great writing program. It seems pricey, but it is worth it.

I feel this curriculum offers some valuable 'building blocks' for teaching children how to write effectively including the use of strong verbs and adjectives, variety in sentence structure etc. My one caution is that you can become too dependent on this approach so that all the children's papers sound very similar. Sometimes, in my opinion, in order to use all the 'dress-ups' the papers can seem a bit contrived. Overall, it is an excellent tool for writing instruction as long as one allows for a little deviation when appropriate.
