The one that jumps to memory right away is the very first episode of The Read-Aloud Revival podcast.
I could recognize great writing. If you're like me, you might be thinking something like, "No way do I have time to watch fourteen hours of this seminar before I can get my kids started on this! What we liked best: Teaching writing quickly became my number one nemesis.
Portable Walls are a tool offered by IEW to help students set up a writing station at their desk or table, one that can easily be picked up and moved.
You must have this to use any of their writing courses. We do all the steps though, and it is still taking only a short amount of time per day. I warmly recommend IEW for all homeschool families. We received one notebook with the set - it has a 3-ring binder and divider tabs, all the student hand-outs, and all the necessary Teacher's Notes.

The kids loved that they could write in pen required, actually — cross-outs show progress! It will remain a permanent part of our 3rd and 4th grade syllabus because the grammatical understanding it gave my boys was invaluable to propelling them along the language path.
We had never used IEW and using it this school year will give Avarie a solid foundation to begin Essentials in 4th grade.
That might change if I try to keep them going all through the summer, so I will give them a break! You may also purchase a spiral bound student book, if you prefer.
