Publisher: Writing Tales
Author: Amy Olsen
$19.95
Amy Olsen has produced an awesome home school product that encompasses writing and grammar for 3rd - 5th graders.   Level One  (for 3rd or 4th graders) has 30 writing lessons, each one five days long,  that include lessons on capital letters, punctuation, quotes, both direct and indirect, and all eight parts of speech.  Practice is also included in handwriting (with copy work), vocabulary and dictionary skills, and spelling.  Plenty of games (can be played with just teacher and student or in groups) for review and practice are included.    
 
Teach your child in the classical style and have fun at the same time. Based on the first level of the ancient progymnasmata  (writing exercises used by the Greeks where students learn to write their own by copying well-written models first.  At the same time, they learn the mechanics of the English language by studying and analyzing these models), Writing Tales teaches grammar level students how to write by studying and re-writing classic tales and fables. Extremely user-friendly, the Teacher's Guides include day-to-day lesson plans for homeschoolers as well as lesson plans for co-operatives.  The Student Workbooks take your child through in-depth studies of 15 different fables and fairy tales, and guide them through the process of re-writing each story in their own words.
