    Teach your child in the classical style and have fun at the same time with Writing Tales!

    Based on the first level of the ancient progymnasmata writing exercises used by the Greeks, Writing Tales teaches grammar level students how to write by studying and re-writing classic tales and fables. Extremely user-friendly, the Teacher's Guides include day-to-day lesson plans for homeschoolers as well as lesson plans for co-operatives. The Student Workbooks take your child through in-depth studies of 15 different fables and fairy tales, and guide them through the process of re-writing each story in their own words. Because of the nature of the classical approach and the thorough study and analysis done of each story, plenty of practice is included in grammar, copywork, spelling, and vocabulary, making Writing Tales a fully comprehensive writing curriculum.

    Writing Tales Level One is recommended for third or fourth graders, while Level Two is appropriate for fourth or fifth graders.
