Teach your child in the classical style and have fun at the same time with Writing Tales!
I am super excited about this week’s giveaway! One winner will win their choice of Level One or Level Two Set of Writing Tales. We reviewed this curriculum recently and I was SO impressed! We found it too late, but I am already planning on using this when my tot gets in elementary!
It leans more toward the classical way of teaching, but coming from someone who is using a lot of Charlotte Mason type of curriculum, I see how this would fit in beautifully. In my opinion, you can use this as an all-in-one language arts program!
Based on the first level of the ancient progymnasmata writing exercises used by the Greeks, Writing Tales teaches grammar level students how to write by studying and re-writing classic tales and fables.
Extremely user-friendly, the Teacher’s Guides include day-to-day lesson plans for homeschoolers as well as lesson plans for co-operatives. The Student Workbooks take your child through in-depth studies of 15 different fables and fairy tales, and guide them through the process of re-writing each story in their own words. Because of the nature of the classical approach and the thorough study and analysis done of each story, plenty of practice is included in grammar, copywork, spelling, and vocabulary, making Writing Tales a fully comprehensive writing curriculum.

How much is it? Well, in my opinion, it is very reasonably priced. You can get both the Teacher’s book and the Student’s book for under $45. Considering you can use this for grammar, copywork, spelling, and vocabulary, and writing, that’s a steal! Can’t wait to try and win it? Ready to buy it now? Click here to purchase it! If you win, you will be refunded!
