"ISABEL’S SECRET is a book for 8-12 year old girls that kept my ten year old captivated! She couldn’t wait for me to review it—she snatched it and read it in a day. This is a great book about culture and a girl’s dream. Isabel is a sweet girl, kind and caring. My daughter said she'd give it more than five stars if she could!"
A Writing Process Curriculum
The Creative Writing Made Easy! portion of the curriculum has been designed to easily guide the student through the writing process in easy to digest bits of instruction. It guides the student through the development of character, themes and plot, the writing (beginning, middle and end) as well as the editing and compilation of a complete story. Throughout questions are asked to stir the imagination and graphic organizers and fill-in-the-blank sections are included for the student to use.
A Faith-Based Curriculum
Jan has purposefully created this curriculum for Christian students. Students are guided through the process of developing a character that trusts God’s timing, protection, provision and design as well as growing in character and faith. As a former elementary public school teacher and an experienced Christian homeschooling parent, I can easily say that I love this curriculum. It is a well designed faith-based curriculum that provides students with solid, interactive writing instruction while providing wonderful opportunities for faith-based thought and discussion."
My oldest daughter is bright, creative and witty. She is also dyslexic and didn’t start reading fluently until the 4th grade. It has been so difficult to get my daughter to read that I hadn’t even considered any sort of writing curriculum. We were just working on learning how to read without getting frustrated and being able to just simply enjoy books without any tears! This has been a long, hard road for us, but I am happy to say that last year, at 10 years old she was reading fluently without any help from me. I encouraged her with simple books and we slowly worked our way up to to harder chapter books. I found she enjoyed any books about animals and horses the best. So that is what she read the most of!
