    No writing prompts for July & August. So if you home school year round, this curriculum leaves a 2 month gap.

    The writing level is a bit higher than expected – my son is in 1st grade. Writing is his trouble area which is why i picked up this bundle, but most of it we will not use this year and save for next year. I think this bundle is better suited for 2nd-3rd grade due to the narrowness of the writing lines, length of writing, needing to already know how to write a sentence, knowing how to write a paragraph, etc.

    I did find the topics and material engaging and more engaging than other items I have seen on the market. I enjoyed the variety too including writing step procedures for chores and practicing some research skills for animal reports.

    There was nothing designated for July and August, so if you teach year round, there is a two month gap. We moved all the animal reports to the summer as that would be a fun thing to do when its too hot to play outdoors (gets 118F here).

    I would have preferred the Writing without Tears two line system instead of the typical dotted line in the middle. Writing without tears is the only system that works for my struggling kiddo and so having that line structure option in any printables especially for P-1st would be extremely helpful.

    There is also an error – the chick research project has no writing lines well at least that is how mine printed.
