Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
There is no secret that writing is not one of my sons favorite homeschool task, but I am determine this year to make writing enjoyable. The Crew was given the opportunity to review the Structure and Style series from Institute for Excellence in Writing®. For this review I will be discussing the Structure and Style® for Students Year 1 Level A .
Structure and Style® for Students Year 1 Level A covers 24 weeks of instruction. The series comes with a Student Binder, Teachers Manuel and Instructional Streaming. At first glance I really appreciated the organization of Structure and Style® for Students Year 1 Level A I like having everything in a binder so it is easily accessible. The Teachers Manual is detail and easy to follow. I was a little confused by how to organized the materials but I was able to figure things out easily. The stream service is really informative as well and I appreciate Mr. Andrew Pudewa funny lessons and great repertoire with children. Mr. Andrew Pudewa instructs the students on their lessons and how they need to be completed once they finish watching the his lessons.
My son was a little reluctant to start the program because of course he doesn’t like to do a lot of writing, but I have been encouraging him to do more and he likes the stream parts of the lessons he says Mr. Andrew is funny. The binder is divided into 8 different tabs which makes it easy for him and I took keep his writing in order. The student binder gives the student a week at a glance so they know exactly what they will be working on for the upcoming week. We happened to have the Fix Grammar book already so I was able to let him us it alongside the program as well as instructed. You do not have to have this, but we had it and so I went ahead and let him follow along.
