  1. Question

    I am a homeschool mom of 8. My oldest is 16 1/2 and will be a Junior, my next oldest will be 15 in August ( He has been very difficult to school from Day 1. He doesn’t like to narrate or pretty much do anything but science. Then I have a 12, 11, 9 (10 in November), 8 (learning to read), 5, and 2 1/2 year olds. I am trying to figure out where to start. We used Writing with Ease when my older 2 were very young. We have been looking for a good writing and grammar ever sense. my oldest did FLL 1 & 2 and some of 3 and my 2nd oldest did some of it. The older 2 did Easy Grammar for a year but my 15 year old didn’t retain a whole lot of it. The rest have had light grammar. We have been Charlotte Mason homeschoolers since my oldest was 6. We have gone astray some the last 2 years but coming back so i want to use FLL and Grammar for the Well trained mind, Writing With Ease and Writing with Skill. Just have no idea where to put everyone

      But for the younger children: the 5 year old and 2 1/2 year old don’t need to be doing any grammar or composition yet. They can focus on learning the the alphabet, etc. Once the 8 year old is comfortable with reading, he or she can start on FLL 1, and then add WWE 1.

  2. Question

    Hello,
    I have a rising 8th grader who has never used Writing with Ease or Writing with Skill. Can I start him with Writing with Skill level 2 or 3?

    • According to the author, every student should start Writing With Skill at level 1, because the skills covered there are foundations of what’s covered in levels 2 and 3. It is perfectly fine for an 8th grader to use WWS 1, and to then do WWS 2 in 9th grade and 3 in 10th grade.
