which Aesop for child in IEW swi-a?

Postby serendipitous » Tue Apr 09, 2013 11:29 am

excuse no caps -- i'm holding a sick tot!

i want to use cw in parallel w/iew for an accelerated second grader who has high needs for structure. this won't be onerous for him -- we school year-round, he'lljust have 1 writing assignment each morning.

he is 7.5, we'll either start now or in the fall. he is doing well w/ iew's swi-a writing course. would you suggest aesop a or b? my goal is for him to be engaged and interested, and have as much fun as possible.

thank you!

What are his grammar skills like? My inclination is to go with Aesop A, unless he has already had a lot of grammar.

His grammar skills are ... hmmm ... well, he knows his parts of speech but isn't 100% at identifying adverbs in sentences. We're working through Michael Clay Thompson's Grammar Island and will be finishing First Language Lessons 2 before the end of June. Is that helpful? (and thanks for the reply!)
