Writing Prompt: Which Resources Didn't Work for Your Family?

Two weeks ago, for a writing prompt, we shared what our favorite resource or curriculum had been.  I thought it would be fun to now share what resources just didn’t work for your family.

It doesn’t mean, of course, that the curriculum or resource is bad, just something that didn’t click for you and your family.  Be sure to share why it wasn’t the perfect fit for your family.

Come back on Thursday to link up your post so others can read them as well!

    We did not mesh with Institute for Excellence in Writing. Maybe I picked a level that was too low for my children or maybe it was because they just like working on their own. We also didn’t enjoy Writing Strands although I know a lot of people use that.

    Basically I give my children a choice of either filling out a boring writing workbook or writing their own story. They choose both options at different times. The most important thing is that they are writing… no options there.
