sheryl Posted September 15, 2012 Share Posted September 15, 2012 In a nutshell, I need a writing program for my 13 yo/8th grade dd. Background: I use Abeka Language Arts, now English (Grammar and Composition book). I've always used Abeka - it's an excellent program. THEN, she had a seizure when she was finishing 2nd grade. Around this time she wrote a few sentences and it progressed to a paragraph of 5-10 sentences. I did not push the writing because it was all I could do just to have to work on and complete her core subjects. This pattern continued for a few years. When she started 5th or 6th (don't remember which) I started using Wordsmith and Write Shop wiith her. She doesn't care for each one. The skills she learned were compromised b/c of her seizure. Should I go back to a writing program at the 5/6 grade level? Would you recommend another writing program? My dd needs to relearn (maybe), but definately review the basic writing pattern - sentence structure, paragraph structure....very basic instruction of the process of writing. She needs to start with writing good, vivid sentences and progress to paragraphs. In the near future she needs to advance to writing paragrahps which would form a paper of some length...maybe 2-3 pages or 4-5. HELP! What suggestions do you have to share? If you would change the program, I'd like to know which one and WHY! With all programs what are the pros and cons? THANKS! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
