Hi mom17,

I'm guessing you're not from the UK. This site is mainly UK parents, so people will probably be using very different resources. We have used quite a lot of US stuff - Evan Moor do good resources - we have used Six Traits (or something like that!) which is a very good writing course.

We've also used quite a lot of Well Trained Mind, although that was for younger kids, but they are doing a follow-on for 'First Language Lessons for the WTM' which should be out next year (shame my youngest is now too old!) and they do a good writing skills course called 'Writing with Skill' for middle graders, which suited my DSs but not DD. That's available from Peace Hill Press.
