  2. Question

    How many weeks of lessons is included?

    • 36 weeks.

  3. Question

    You need more sample pages on the mobile version of your website. Can’t see any sample pages

  4. Question

    Hi
    I have recently started WWE 1 with my 8.5 year old. Thus far, I have been asking him to write down his answer for each question in the narration exercise.( He has good understanding and has covered the basics of grammar using various UK curricula. He has delayed motor development and so, finds writing tiring.)
    Would you suggest continuing in this fashion? Or would it be more appropriate to complete narration exercise as intended and cover 2 weeks’ lessons per week and ‘catch up’ in theory? Many thanks

    • The way you have been doing it sounds good to us, and should work!

  5. Question

    Hi! My son is almost 6 and has learnt quite a bit of writing at reception in the UK. Do you think I could start with level 1 or is it too early?

    • It might be all right…try the first few lessons and see. But there is no hurry. Take lots of breaks and keep the lessons brief.

  6. Question

    Are the student pages included in the this book or do I need to purchase them separately? Thank you!

    • Yes, the student pages are included in this book. If you want an extra set of the student pages (say, for a second student) you can purchase those separately.

  7. Question

    I want to use this workbook for my twins. Just want to double check that if I buy the pdf I can just print two copies of everything rather than buying the hard copy workbook plus a set of the student pages. All the questions below seem to be about hard copies.

    • Yes! If you buy the PDF, you can print as many copies as you need for your family.

  8. 4 out of 5 Love the books, just have one request

    I have purchased/used these books for my two older children and we love them. I only have one issue, hence the four star rating. When I print the kids worksheets for the week I always have to go back into my pdf versions in order to tell which set came from which book. Would it be possible to put something like WWE-1, WWE-2 etc in the footers of the pages so it is easier to tell which is which. PLEASE!!! We recently moved and a bunch of these pages were combined into one box, it has been a nightmare sorting them out. Also as another poster mentioned the printed pages are smaller than in the physical books, looks like bigger margins are being used for the pdf versions.

    • Thanks for this! We’ll take a look at this suggestion and see what we can do the next time we reprint the book.

  9. Question

    What age/grade is this for? Thanks.

    • Ideally for a 7 or 8 year old student.

    Question

    Hi. I am from the UK and trying to obtain the pdf versions of the first language lessons for the well trained mind level 1, writing with ease level 1, and writing with skill level 1 at the discounted rate of 40% per text however once I got to the final calculations the 40% discounts disappeared and I am unable to purchase it at that rate. Has the sale ended? If so will there be another sale soon? I am really interested in buying these resources for my homeschool but I have a budget due to being a single mum of 4. Please get back to me as soon as possible. I shall be very grateful. Kind Regards. Shareen

    • Thanks for checking. Yes, that sale ended on Sunday, unfortunately. There won’t be another sale on Grammar products very soon.

  11. Question

    Are the student pages single sided or double sided in the loose leaf copy? I’m trying to decide how to print out my PDF version.

    • The pages are single sided.

  12. Question

    This will be the first year that I am using this with my kids. How do I know which level they should start with? I have 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 8th graders. Thanks!

    • 2 out of 2 people found this helpful

      For Writing With Ease levels 1-4, you should check out our diagnostic evaluations. These are the end-of-year evaluations for each of the four years of the program, and they give you a pretty good idea of where we expect the student to be at the end of each year: downloads.peacehillpress.com/pdfs/samples/wwe/wweevaluations.pdf

  13. Question

    Does the workbook include the copywork and narration exercise for every week? For example, with the combined years 1-3 textbook I have, certain weeks are chosen by the teacher. Does the teacher choose them for the workbook, or are they provided?

    • The workbook includes copywork and narration exercises for every week. It’s all provided!

  14. Question

    I homeschool two children. If I get the WWE Instructor Manual and two sets of the Student Pages will I have enough material to teach the program. I anticipate some potential conflict between the kids if one gets an activity book and the other loose leaf pages.

    • One person found this helpful

      If you get the Student Pages for Workbook 1 without getting a copy of Workbook 1, you’ll be missing a lot of the assignments. The Student Pages assume that you have Workbook 1. If you’re looking for an economical solution, you could get each child their own copy of Workbook 1 from our “Scratch & Dent” sale. These books have very mild marking or scratches on the covers, but are otherwise completely intact, and we sell them for 60% less than the cover price! Call our office at 1.877.322.3445 to order them.

  15. Question

    Do we need both the workbook AND the teacher’s guide? Also, what is the difference between the workbook and the student looseleaf pages?

    • Yes, it’s best to have both the workbook and the teacher’s guide. There is some overlap, but the teacher’s guide has a lot of helpful “why” and troubleshooting material.
      The workbook contains instructions AND all the pages the student will need. The looseleaf pack is ONLY the student pages; no instructions. Pick up a looseleaf pack for additional students; that way you don’t have to buy them a whole other book.

  16. 5 out of 5 Excellent - My Favorite

    I love this series. I think it is perfect. I have taught Level 1 to a first grader and Level 2 to a second grader. I was able to tailor the lessons to a child who was strong-willed, struggled with handwriting, and was too anxious to think up and write out a complete sentence. I love that the daily time commitment is short – for instructor and student. I love that it is so well thought out and gradual in building skill and confidence. I loved that I had to do no lesson planning; I just got the worksheets out for that day, sat on the couch with my daughter (while I nursed a newborn), and we were able to complete the lesson in about 10-20 minutes (depending on student cooperation and toddler & baby interruptions). After a year off from homeschooling, I look forward to teaching Writing With Ease again this year!

  17. Question

    I have a 7 (turning 8) year old going into second grade. This would be our first time using this curriculum. I know she would be in Level 1 with WWE, but what level would pair best in FLL? She does already know about most parts of speech and sentence structure, should I start her at level 2 in FLL?

    • Start with Level 1, but you can move quickly through the early lessons, since some of it will be review. Also, if you’re using WWE and FLL at the same time, you can skip any of the exercises in FLL that are called “Story Narration” or “Poem Narration,” since she’ll be getting plenty of that in WWE.

  18. Question

    I see from a previous question that the diagnostic test is the best way to determine which WWE book to use for my rising 5th grader. Could you tell me where that link is located on the site?
    Also, I am considering switching from IEW History-Based Writing Lessons to this curriculum. Can you tell me how they are similar/different?
    Thanks!

    • The diagnostic evaluations can be found at http://downloads.peacehillpress.com/pdfs/samples/wwe/wweevaluations.pdf
      Our program doesn’t add in the “creative writing” side like I.E.W. does, since we treat that as its own subject.
