IEW theme based book (not sure which one. Any suggestions?)



This is the first year that I've ever been able to pull off IEW style writing. We're using the Imitations in Writing: Aesop's Fables from Logos Press. I really like this book. It has reproducable pages so all I have to do is copy and we can go. I don't have to find a good paragraph and then edit it so that it works well (which I kept having to do with excerpts from Eyewitness books and other sources, which meant that we really never got around to doing writing).


Each page has a short fable at the top, a place to list the characters in the fable, four vocabulary words to define with a short definition, and a place to write a key word outline. The kids do their outlining right on this page, cut off the story portion and use the outline to write their own story.


The Fables volume is the lowest level. Fairy tales have slightly longer stories. Then there are a few higher levels. If you're looking for an IEW help, you should check these out.

Yes, she's in pretty good shape. The Zofran seemed to help her turn the corner. Now my 9 yo is complaining of a tummy ache, but the older kids just had a day of cramps. She is the last one standing, so if you could pray that she has a mild case if at all. I have no idea why it hit my 5 yo the way it did. 4yo dd had it pretty bad but it didn't last as long. 5yo is eating a drinking normally again. She lost 4 lbs though. Yikes.


So, my plan is to go down with a friend this afternoon, and then come back tonight. Then DH and I are going back down tomorrow and stay overnight. Maybe I will see you tonight???
