Customer Reviews for Common Sense Press Wordsmith Apprentice

Common Sense Press Wordsmith Apprentice

In Wordsmith Apprentice, students pretend to be writers for a small-town local newspaper. This introduces an element of imagination that makes the writing projects fun and interesting while reinforcing all the basics, including sentence review, paragraph writing, reporting, comics, opinion writing, and much more.

118 pages spiral-bound, for grade levels 4 to 6 or ages 9 to 12. Additional suggested resources: a thesaurus and a newspaper.

Great way to get your child to write! I have a 13 year old and she really is reluctant to do anything that takes more than just a few minutes, however with this book she is finding it fun to write.

My 6th grader loves this book. He's very creative but he doesn't like the process of writing. This workbook makes it fun!

My son was a VERY reluctant writer, in fact I started homeschooling him because he was having such a hard time in his language arts class. We have been using this program a little over a month now and I was praising my son just yesterday because not only has his writing gotten better, but his ATTITUDE about writing has gotten better. He told me "that's because it's finally fun to write" now that he's using Wordsmith Apprentice. I highly recommend this curriculum!

We have just done the first few assignments in the book, but my daughter is enjoying the cartoons and the idea of writing a newspaper. I think she will learn a lot about how to write using this book. There are some religious aspects to this book which I was not expecting but I am fine with. Those who aren't Christian might want to look at the book before buying.

I used this book with my daughter, and a few years later, my son asked me if he could have one, too! The book really makes writing interesting for children.

Absolutely loving this book. My DD would prefer to avoid all writing assignments, but with the guidance in this book and "Just Write", she has found more enjoyment and freedom to experiment with the written word. She will cuddle up in the chair with her pencil and this book and I have to tell her it is time to stop! Amazing. It starts with an introduction for the Editor of a newspaper, then an employment application to get a job at the newspaper and takes the student through reinforcing writing basic into reporting, opinion and persuasive writing. While it says it is a self-guided book for the 4-6th grader, I would add that discussing it with your child is key to optimizing their learning. Excellent book!
