The tone is conversational, but the information is complex; the exercises are creative, yet rigorous.
I love how they are introducing cultural literacy and logic while teaching writing.
Fable, he had been a very reluctant writer. After dabbling for years in [other] programs. My husband and I were amazed, and humbled, at how much was stored up in that little mind of his, just waiting to come out.
They are making great progress and have moved from dreading their writing assignments to eagerly anticipating them each week.
My kids no longer complain about writing. Regarding content, the readings that lay the foundation and provide inspiration for each lesson are wonderfully rich and thought-provoking.
The stories are wonderful and engaging and we have had so much fun with it.
I wish it had been around for my older kids. I love both the content and method of this curriculum. Besides being very visually appealing, it hits just the right balance for us in terms of age-appropriate instruction and lively fun activities.
She begged me to do it and worked through three revisions of it without a single complaint! In my own humble opinion! Your books manage to accomplish this so I always look forward to seeing what else you have published.
The thought has occurred to me many times that experiences like these are exactly the reason I love the freedom of homeschooling. It is easy to implement, interesting, and just enough work to challenge but not frustrate. This is the only program in 6 years my 6th-grade son has not cried and he even said today that he likes it.
Thank you, Classical Academic Press, for this program. Not only did I see my kids really thinking and improving their writing skills, they actually enjoyed it along the way! My daughter asks every day to get started on her writing!
Today we are finishing lesson 2. I enjoyed working on those stories. While my son claims to hate writing, this is what he shared with me today: When a child is so preoccupied with getting quantity done, he has no time left to ingest, process and assimilate concepts.
Thank you for the value you add to homeschooling! I am a former public school teacher and searched long and hard for a high-quality writing curriculum that would inspire my son to be creative while also teaching him structure.
Please continue the good work of providing excellent classical materials that are manageable for home educators. I like the pace and understanding it is teaching.
My 4th-grade daughter is doing great too. My youngest three will definitely be using it all the way through. Even my 7-year-old wants to join in sometimes.
I LOVE that you maintain the positive elements of classical education without requiring the tedious repetition and copious problems that so many classical curriculum models fall prey too.
This is our most successful writing program so far and I am looking forward to continuing with this series. She does love to write outside of school, but it has always been hard to get her to write for school, so this is such a victory!
It is restful learning!
After only the first lesson, he wrote an outstanding original story completely on his own. These programs were too boring or dry or complicated; they sucked the life out of the subject and my kids were bored.A Fable The Blackbird and the Cherry Tree By: Sue Peterson Once upon a time there was a blackbird that lived in a cherry tree outside my window.
Every day, the blackbird would sing and sing. When I ate my breakfast, the blackbird ate his breakfast. When I ate my lunch, the blackbird ate his lunch.
