Review 1 for Writing Skills Activities for Special Children
Date:February 21, 2010
This is an outstanding activity book. It gives simple, step-by-step instructions to the teacher and an intro to the lesson for the student. It can be used in both a large classroom setting or in a homeschool of one. Having taught public school students in the past and now homeschooling my own children, I have noticed that writing and grammar are very difficult processes to master, but this book breaks the information down to a very elementary level. I use this book for my advanced 4th/5th grader that struggles in writing as well as for my two Kindergarteners that are just beginning to learn that writing can be lots of fun. Because the pages are reproducible they are great for reinforcement or for multiple students, however, I would recommend a printer/copier with really inexpensive ink! Overall, this is an outstanding value for anyone trying to teach a student in an elementary grade (or higher) that stuggles with writing.

I love that the activities are reproducible in this book, not only because we can do the page over and over again until we have understanding, but also because I have 3 special needs children, so I can use the book for all three of them.
