The lessons are fun and meaningful and taught with a Biblical worldview. 2 days a week are recommended.
- Day 1: Watch the 15-20 minute teaching time. It's broken into a couple of sections. First, we watched the "Pre-Flight Checklist" which is a short segment covering supplies needed. The "Flight Check-in" is is next, with a welcome and "discovery tickets" are discussed. "Take Off" is game time, a writing warm up and reciting the writing process. Finally, "Full Throttle" covers the main lesson and any hands-on crafts.
- Day 2: Students complete their writing assignment.
My testers really enjoyed the antics of Ms. Mora. She has several different personas - a flight attendant, a game show host, as well as the teacher in a small group of students (your own writing co-op). She is very engaging and a bit goofy. my testers LOVED her!
One downside is the printing. You need to print everything your student needs, including a 36-page Language Helps workbook (full color!). However, you can use this with multiple children, so it all comes out more economical, I think. You just need to spend the time up front - printing and collecting the worksheets for their own writing binder. Or, just choose to purchase them and have them delivered. :-)
The lessons are clearly laid out for you. This is a very teacher friendly way to teach writing!
My testers really liked "writing warm ups". It's early in each lesson. A picture - for instance a dog on a skateboard, is given and they have 3 minutes to come up with as many words for the word box as they can think of. Then, they get 7 minutes to use the words and write their own story. This is where it is really nice to work with multiple students!
Ms. Mora has put the writing process into hand motions that make it easy to remember. This is a great way for my child that struggles with reading to really interact. It's multi-sensory.
Some of the writing projects we completed included making lists, completing webs to help organize our paragraph into beginning, middle, end, and writing our paragraphs.
I am very impressed with this program, and my testers were extremely enthusiastic about writing. Here to Help Learning makes it so easy!
