Could I combine cw with writing strands? in K-8 Curriculum Board Posted May 8, 2008 My dd going into 7th grade is currently doing ws 4 and does not really like it, although it does seem to be working for her. I was thinking of getting cw for older beginners, because I like the look of it, and alternating between doing a week of one and then a week of the other. Would this be too much? Opinions?
