We don’t usually buy curriculum because we’re very eclectic and often don’t stick with one thing throughout the entire year. So even if it isn’t super expensive, the value still might not be there for us. We are what I would call “relaxed eclectic” in our homeschool method or style but do try to incorporate some “traditional” school work in every now and again.
I was very open to giving Write Shop Junior E a try with my oldest two children. We have not done a formal writing curriculum in a few years. I feel that writing is a very important skill just like grammar and will hold value even in a technological era. You can only do so much with spell check plus using parts of your brain to write and convey a message truly is timeless.
