Product Description

The Writing With Ease Level 2, Workbook provides all of the copywork assignments, comprehension questions, and reading passages that you’ll need for a full year of writing study.

Using passages and sentences from classic children’s literature, the Level 2 Workbook allows young writers to practice their skills while absorbing the style and grace of great authors. Charming illustrations by Jeff West add a visual element that will spark your child’s imagination.

Make writing easier for you and your child…use Writing With Ease!

Contents

The Workbook contains two parts: the Instructor Section and the Student Pages.

The Instructor Section is divided into 36 weeks of instruction with four lessons per week. You get detailed directions and scripted dialogue with suggested student responses in every lesson, so you can teach with confidence!

The Student Pages are the consumable portion of the workbook given to the student for their writing assignment. Perforated for easy removal, the Student Pages have plenty of lined space for your student’s writing. (These included pages are the same as the pages we also sell separately: Level 2 Student Pages.)

Do you have more than one student? When you purchase the Workbook, you have permission to copy (or print from the PDF) the Student Pages as many times as you need for use within your own family. But if you want to keep your Workbook intact, or to save yourself the trouble of lugging it to Kinko’s, you can simply purchase an additional set of Level 2 Student Pages.

Need Help?

If your child has unique needs or if you feel that the recommended grade level is not a good fit, look at the Writing With Ease, Diagnostic Evaluations. These are the Mastery Evaluations used when the student has completed a Level’s Workbook and will help you choose the right level for your student.

If you can’t decide between Writing with Ease Level 4 and starting our intermediate series: Writing with Skill, or if you are interested in an alternate progression for writing instruction, see Susan’s updated grade recommendations.

  1. Question

    I was told to use this book for my 1st grader. He gets it but is this too advanced?

    • Not really! Some people start in first grade with Level 1 and then do Level 2 in 2nd grade, but it’s flexible. If he is understanding it and is able to do the lessons without a lot of frustration, then you’re fine!

  2. Question

    Any suggestions for how to teach the same level to two or more students at the same time?

    • To do that, you’ll only need one workbook, but you should get a set of the Student Pages for the 2nd student (the student pages are a pack of all the pages from the back half of the workbook…everything the student reads or writes on). You can explain concepts or do the read-aloud sections to both students at once, and then check their work as they individually write the various sentences, etc. You might also want to search our Forums (https://forums.welltrainedmind.com/forum/3-k-8-curriculum-board/) to see how other parents are doing this.

  3. Question

    Does this book have the student writing in cursive or print?

    • The example student writing that’s shown in the book is in print. But your student could do his or her writing either in print or in cursive.

  4. Question

    Hi! My son is in 2nd grade. If we started with the WWE Level 2, would he miss out on concepts taught in Level 1 and, therefore, be confused? Thanks!

    • No, he wouldn’t miss out on anything. There isn’t a big “jump” between Level 1 and Level 2. The same basic concepts are taught, but the reading selections are a little longer, the vocabulary is a little more advanced, etc. He should be fine. If you’d like, you can check out the samples first to get a better idea of what a typical lesson looks like.

  5. Question

    Where do I find a table of contents or section that tells me what is taught like a scope and sequence.

    • Underneath the picture of the book on this product page is a Read Sample button. Click on that, and you can see sample pages from Week 10, Week 30, and Week 31. You can also look at the WWE Diagnostic Evaluations found here to see what should be mastered at the end of each year.

  6. Question

    Thought of another question: Are these books (all versions and levels) supposed to be supplements to other material or are they enough to stand alone? Thanks again

    • They can stand alone!

  7. Question

    What is the purpose of the parent writing down the narration? Is it enough just to have the child narrate? Do you write down the narration as he speaks it, or do you help him correct it in the process – e.g. by breaking up the phrases phrases connected by “and then” into shorter sentences? What do you do with it after you’ve written it down? (make him read it? correct it further?)

    Several people have suggested that it’s basically for record-keeping (so they can go back and see what they’ve accomplished over the year), but that isn’t a priority for us. (There are enough other subjects/books/workbooks for that.)

    (PS. I have the WTM book and the WWE book, but I didn’t notice it explained anywhere.)

    • It’s partially because a lot of children this age get fatigued when they have to do a lot of writing. Having you write it down instead of them allows them to focus on remembering what the main parts of the story were. In the early stages, you don’t really need to keep the narrations, so they can just do it orally and you don’t have to write it down. In the later stages (3 and 4) you can read back their narration aloud and they can write it down, thus giving them a chance to put into writing what they composed orally.

  8. Question

    I have a 4th and 2nd grader. My 4th grader is way more comfortable with writing than my 2nd. Do I need 2 levels? Level 2 and 3?

    • Possibly but not necessarily. Take a look at the samples on each product page and the evaluations (linked below). If you are new to the program, your older student might benefit from additional practice in narration and dictation that doesn’t start at too high of a level. You don’t want him to be bored, but the passages in Level 2 are wonderful works and pretty challenging. I’d probably have a 4th-grader look at the samples with me and have some input. Starting with Level 2 now would still allow for them to move on to Writing with Skill during 6th or 7th grade (depending on whether you choose to do Level 4 of Writing with Ease). If in doubt, do the full evaluations that are found here.

  9. Question

    My almost 12 year old daughter struggles with most aspects of LA. We are currently doing FLL Level 3 and have been doing another writing curriculum which is not working for us. Where would you suggest I start with Writing with Ease? Or should I start her with Writing With Skill? I also have a high reading, writing-resistant 9 year old son who is also doing FLL Level 3. Could they both do the same writing level? I am afraid that if I start my daughter on too low a level she will not be ready for high school writing. On the other hand, I would like her to gain some writing confidence. ***I currently own Writing with Ease Level 3 and Writing with Skill Level 1.

    • Before starting Writing With Skill, the student needs to have a pretty good grasp of writing short paragraphs, narrations, and so on. If more practice is needed, we generally recommend that students work through Writing With Ease, Level 4 for a year before doing Writing With Skill. In your case, if the extra practice is needed, you could go ahead and use Level 3. While it’s ideal to be fully prepared for high school writing, it’s also a process that can’t be rushed. There’s time to go through “Writing With Skill” in grades 8/9/10 or even 9/10/11. Take a look at the WWE Diagnostic Evaluations – if your daughter can successfully complete the year 3 evaluation, she can probably move on to WWS 1. If you’re son can complete the year 2 evaluation, he is ready for WWE 3.

  10. Question

    What level should a 2nd grader purchase?

    • Level 2 would probably be the most suitable. Take a look at the samples first. Also, here are the year-end evaluations from each of the four levels, to show you where we would like a student to be at the end of each of the four books: http://downloads.peacehillpress.com/pdfs/samples/wwe/wweevaluations.pdf
