I haven’t heard of it before but after reading this post and looking through the sample, I am excited for my unenthusiastic 4th grader to use this amazing curriculum. I have been struggling with finding curriculum since we didn’t expect to home school but God is almighty and His plan is greater than mine.

Yes, I’ve heard of this curriculum, and I appreciate your review. I have some creative kids who are reluctant to write. I think this would be good for them.
I am on the hunt for something just like this! so glad to have found it and would love to win it!
Mandy Ferguson says
I have never heard of this resource before. I have been so frustrated trying to find the right writing program for my children for years. I finally gave up and pieced together my own. This sounds like it would be a great fit for us. I would love to have the opportunity to try this program. It looks like it helps children become passionate about writing, and that would change everything for us.

I have heard of it and it is actually the curriculum we want to use for next year! Crossing my fingers to win!
I have heard of this, but have not used it. I would love to try this with my 7th grader. I need something that can keep her interest.

looks very interesting. Thanks for sharing this, I have not heard of it yet and appreciate your thoughtful insights. I am looking for something for my upcoming 8th grader!
I had not heard of Writer’s in Residence prior to this. This looks like an excellent writing resource for my 5th grade daughter. I can’t wait to explore it further.
After looking at this curriculum and reading reviews, I would love to use this! Looks Great! I have a 5th and 7th grader that this looks great for!

I saw this new curriculum mentioned in a comment on a FB post and didn’t give it a second thought. After seeing this blog post this morning, I spent a lot of time looking aver the sample pages and checking out the schoolhouse crew reveiws. It has changed my plans for writing! 🙂 It would be snazzy to win this, but either way, this will be my 6th graders writing curriculum this coming school year.
This curriculum is completely new to me and I am very excited about it! I skimmed through the download and love the student text with the bright colors and images! I hope this curriculum will help to challenge my eager writer and inspire and encourage my reluctant writer! Thank you for the review!
I am currently homeschooling 2 high schoolers and have been looking and praying about writing curriculm. I cannot wait to dive into this. I believe it is exactly what I’ve been looking for.
I’m excited about this curriculum! I will be leading a class in our co-op using it and having an extra copy would be so helpful! Thank you for this opportunity!
