Item description for Writing Strands Level 3 (Writing Strands Ser) by Dave Marks...

This group of assignments in the series called Writing Strands is designed to give homeschooled third level students a grounding in the very complicated process of giving others their thoughts in written form. This level is designed for students who, in public school, would be considered ready for third or even up to seventh grade. Of course, third and seventh grade students would write much differently, but that is not a problem. Both can experience learning the skills presented in this level. It has been designed to be widely applied, for there are many experiences here that most young writers should have. Scope & Sequence: Topics covered in this level are following directions (basic), sentence & paragraph control (basic), rewriting sentences (basic), description (people), description (people's thoughts), organization (activities), organization (objects), description (perspective), story creation (creative), description (organization), description (actions), narrative events (organization), creative (narrative). (Grades 3 to 7.)

Reviews - What do customers think about Writing Strands Level 3 (Writing Strands Ser)?

It's OK  Sep 7, 2008
The author's attempt at humor is difficult to read for an adult, let alone a child. Though I have two college degrees, I have to re-read the lessons again and explain them in my own words to my child as she has difficulty comprehending the dry wit. We have also had to add extra practice lessons into the mix that I've made up at home. I am surprised this book is so highly recommended. I will finish the one I have, but not certain if I'll continue with the series. That said, I do have an appreciation for what the author tries to get from the student.
Good Series...  Jul 7, 2008
I used this book with my son last year in third grade. I liked the way the writing assignments were broken into manageable chunks. This helped my son to visualize how long a writing assignment might take. It makes the whole "write a story about..." assignment much less overwhelming. My only complaint is that the book is heavy (in my opinion) on writing stories, which is not the type of writing that my son enjoys doing, though he did turn out some pretty good yarns.
Great Writing Curriculum  Oct 20, 2007
Starting homeschooling this year, I was daunted by the choices of curriculum. Our son (3rd grade) has never enjoyed writing and didn't do much of it in traditional school.

We both like this curriculum. The author "speaks" directly to the student and is quite funny, so it makes writing fun. We're only a few months into homeschooling, but my son is quite proud of everything he's written so far.
I love these books!  Jul 17, 2007
I know the author discourages the use of exclamation points, but this book series deserves one. We only homeschooled for one year but I still bought all the books with the intent to use them to improve my own writing skills. They are that good. I highly recommend them for both homeschool and self-improvement.
Just one more homeschool mom's opinion  May 31, 2006
I agree with the earlier homeschooling moms , this is a fun easy to use program. My reluctant 12 year old just finished book 3 (it took 2 years as we spread it out to his pace)and now he has written his own mini adventure series. The wrkbk is geared toward the child, it encourages independance and works in very small steps (strands) toward a goal. This made it much easier for my son who will begin book 4 and my DD begins book 2 this fall.
Have fun learning!!
