How do you (or how do you plan to) have your dc know how to write in all genres?

Narrative, essay, cause and effect, imitative, etc. (I don't even know what they all are!)


Dd is in 4th grade and we've MAINLY done copywork/dictation and imitative writing (Imitations in Writing, IEW, WT) up til now, and we're trying to transition over a little by using Jump In (by Apologia.) I was realizing we've been pretty imitation-heavy and I think we're at a good point to branch out some.


As I was contemplating our writing journey, it made me interested in what others are doing to try to have a well-balanced writing plan over the long-term.

Mostly just giving you a bump....:001_smile:


We use CW which by next year will begin to integrate literature. This year we are adding some simple paragraph style writing with history and lab write-ups with science. We discuss literature and will do some writing with it.
