Sweet Home Alabama Posted January 26, 2012 Share Posted January 26, 2012 (edited) Ds will be in 4th grade next year, and I need to choose something for grammar and writing for him. He has used FLL 1/2 and 3 as well as The Sentence Family, and he's getting a lot of grammar this year in Lively Latin. He tolerates FLL, but it is not his favorite. We've also used WWE 1,2, and 3, yet this series frustrates him. He really enjoys the stories, but there are tears when it comes to the dictation. I've thought about using FLL4 with IEW's All Things Fun and Fascinating, but I would love to hear what you all are using for 4th grade grammar and writing for comparison. (I think the dictation in WWE is helping him overall, so I don't want to abandon it altogether... just need it to be a little less challenging than WWE.) I am more interested in using something that will help him with outlining and eventually expository/argumentative writing vs. creative writing. For this reason, I *think* programs like Writing Tales might be out. I have WWS ready for this ds when he is in either 5th or 6th grade... whenever he is ready for it. Ds is bright. He catches onto grammar fairly easily, and his writing is coming along nicely. He is definitely working on/above grade level. I'm not trying to push him above his frustration level but simply give him the next step.... and I'd like him to enjoy his schoolwork. :001_smile: What are you using for 4th grade grammar and writing???
