In Sixth Grade, your child will learn: detailed sentence structure, additional grammar, additional capitalization/punctuation rules, proper use of a friendly letter, using the writing process to compose narrative, descriptive, expository, and persuasive writing (including formal paragraphs), and five paragraph essays, compare and contrast writing, effective writing skills, multi-paragraph composition, the process to complete a research project, other forms of written communication, and other topics.
Essentials in Writing can be purchased on the company website for grades 1-12. The cost is $40 for each level, including the DVD lessons and CD-ROM with printable worksheets in PDF format. Soon, they will be moving away from CD-ROM and instead purchasers will receive a link to download the worksheet file from online. For an additional $20, you can purchase a printed workbook.
