Which student writing intensive to get?

I have two children 8 (3rd grade) and 11(6th, but works at a much higher level). I want to get the IWE Student Intensive but not sure which one--A or B? My 8 yo is just now starting to write simple sentences. He can't write a paragraph, and his spelling isn't great. He is working on R&S 3 and is doing well. My 11 yo son is very good at everything, including witing. He has a distinctive, interesting style of writing, but no formal writing instruction. This year we are hs through a charter school and he tested off the charts in LA and reading. I would be using charter school money, but only have funds for one level (I can get the next one in November when the second semester funding comes in).

 

Should I get Level A and have my older boy work through it quickly and my younger one slowly through it? Then get Level B next semester OR skip level A and just start level B with both boys? I have TWSS already, if that makes any difference.

 

Thanks for helping me decide!

There was this post on the IEW yahoo group that addressed this scenario. I believe it was Jill who said that you can use SWI B for both your older and younger kid, but use the SWI A materials with your younger child (you can download SWI level A lesson plans from the IEW site).
