Using simple texts to draw and engage children willingly in writing, lessons contain bolded sentences, followed by questions that ask children to analyze what they read-both in terms of comprehension and grammar. Writing exercises and copywork exercises increase in difficulty and will often be written on a separate sheet of paper; oral composition pages feature a classic selection such as Aesop's Fables or a myth that children should recite back in their own words. 99 reproducible pages, softcover.

We homeschool and use this book for my son's 1st grade writing curriculum. My son is a little wiggly and I like to use the most simple materials that get the job done as quickly as possible. This is not a book of a million pages of brainless worksheets rather it is a very simple approach to writing. I cant say that my son loves doing the work, but I know that he would hate worksheets, as would I. Why make writing boring? If you appreciate Charlotte Mason's ideas, then this is the book for you. I dont know why this book isnt used by more people. I am very pleased with it and cant imagine teaching writing without it.

I used this book with my 8yo daughter for her 2nd grade year (we are eclectic homeschoolers). I am so thankful to the person who recommended it to us! After almost a full year of it, my daughter actually enjoys the lessons!

If you are looking for a traditional textbook full of busywork that will likely turn a child off to language arts, this is not the book for you. If you want a traditional workbook that you can just plop down in front of your child and say "Here, do it" then this is not the book for you. It requires, for the most part, that you at least begin the lesson with your child and participate along with her/him (which is very simple and fun!). If you want a lot of wordy explanation, this book is not for you. It is very self-explanatory and will not require a lot (if any) preparation. If you read the short Introduction at the beginning of the book, there should be no confusion as to what to do for each lesson. It is very simple to follow. It gets straight to the point in short enjoyable lessons. Lessons are usually just 1 or 2 pages and are easy to understand. The picture lessons are a favorite in our house. For example, a page shows a small painting of children along with a list of questions that will help your student evaluate/critique it. There are a few lessons that use too much copywork for my taste (ie: read a fable and rewrite it from memory) but we altered it to our liking (ie: write a continuation of the story, imagine what happened next), which is what the authors suggest we do anyway. I appreciate the respect parents/teachers (and students) are given, there is no "talking down" and there is no "you have to do it our way". The parent and child are allowed the freedom to be creative and thoughtful. We have been very pleased with this creative fun "workbook"! I recently bought Vol. 2 for next year and am equally pleased with it.

This guide is classic Charolette Mason. It shows how English instruction does not have to be drudgery but can be fun and engaging.

English for the Thoughtful Child is a unique grammar book. I love how the author includes poetry and art to engage children in the learning process of the English language. It is a great resource. The lessons are simple and clear. Children do not feel overwhelmed, and the exercises for each lesson are very appropriate.

This is a great English primer. It is simple and easy to understand but covers a lot. It works great for students of all ages and abilities.

I really appreciated the lessons about commas. Proper placement of commas can be a big problem for many students. English for the Thoughtful Child provides clear rules that make it easy to understand comma placement.

I used this book while homeschooling my oldest daughter when she was about six. It worked great for us. Recently, I have used it with a highschool freshman who was struggling in English. It has been a big help. I covers all those areas that are usually trouble for students.

This book did not impress me much. It really bored my child, as well as frustrated him. I am not sure how it even covers all the language skills needed, as there was very little explanation to sentence structure, among other things. The poems to memorize were a bit boring and old fashioned, as were the stories. We ended up buying a whole new curriculum.
I was refered to this book by "The Well Trained Mind". I am not homeschooling, but supplimenting. This book is a great overall start to teaching your child about the english language. It covers all areas incluing compostion, sentance structure, dictation and has a handy list of grammer rules. Is great for first to third grade or even could be adapted for kindergarten use.
