  1. Best Writing Program 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th May 2019

    This is the most thorough program I've seen and/or used. I've spent so much on other products and am incredibly grateful to find this one. I love the structure and the systematic approach. The videos are helpful in gaining the visual structure of each piece. It's flexible enough to support the understanding of the wide range of my students' needs. And the best part is that my students love it, understand so much better, and immediately began writing full paragraphs after the second lesson!


  2. Very detailed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Nov 2017


    This program is very detailed and provides a step-by-step process for teaching writing. It also offers flexibility.


  3. Just what I was looking for 5 Star Review

    The format of the Handy Pages is just what my school was looking for. We had the older version, but these seem to fit our needs more closely.
