I started using Growing with Grammar, Soaring with Spelling and Winning with Writing this year. We love the grammar, the spelling... but NOT really the writing. I felt the grammar and writing covered the same things, and the writing was very minimal. I added more writing that went along with the writing lessons they were learning. I just wanted more writing. I will stick with grammar and spelling (GREAT!) but will be searching for a better writing.

We switched to Winning With Writing in January after tiring of the previous writing program and feeling like there was very little writing in the writing program. My daughter loves the daily assignments in Winning With Writing-she actually looks forward to writing.

I like how the lessons start off with the basic sentence structure, move into identifying and correcting run-on and choppy sentences and then build up to constructing interesting sentences with the thoughtful use of descriptive writing.

We will use Winning With Writing for 3rd grade as well. (Winning With Grammar is also a great program.)

We really have enjoyed Winning with Writing 2.
There is enough writing but not too much writing. There are light assignments 5 days a week. It is comprehensive and yet gentle.
We will definitely be continuing on with Winning with Writing 3.

We started using Growing With Grammar quite a few years ago, and then Soaring With Spelling (both JacKris products) a couple of years ago. We love both products. Last year we were excited to see that JacKris came out with a complete writing program. Winning With Writing works very well for our family! I like ths program because it provides just enough structure to the student while letting them be creative at the same time. I also like the guidance it gives so I can be sure that my children receive exposure to the many many types of writing styles and methods. We will continue using this product as it works very well for us.
