Writing With Ease

I received my copy of Writing With Ease today. I've resisted the temptation for so long, but I'm glad I have it now. It really is a wonderful book, and I think it will complement LLATL very nicely.

When *B* started 1st grade I followed The Well-Trained Mind exactly. Since then, I've eased up a lot in the area of Language Arts. (Ruth Beechick helped me to see the error of my way.) So, when I saw that Susan Wise Bauer had come out with a writing program I was very hesitant.

I caved. I bought a copy and I LOVE it!! We're starting evaluations tomorrow. I'm pretty sure that *B* will be able to start on Level 2, I don't have high hopes for Level 3. I do think that this will help a lot before moving into Writing Strands, as I had planned.
