    My 6 year old son will be starting Writing Aids level 1 this year. I noticed that many of the assignments have to do with building a "word bank." Do I need to start with Easy Grammar in addition to the Writing Aids assignments for a 6 year old? What level of EG would I use (the lowest level I've seen is level 3).

    Thanks so much!

    There is an Easy Grammar 2. I would wait until your son was at least 7 seven until starting that.

    Thank you! I was at a hs convention and wasn't sure if I needed to purchase easy grammar while I was there to avoid shipping.

    Kim, I own the FLL and was planning on using it. Then, I chickened out. How do you integrate it with the Writing Aids assignments? Do you pick and choose or follow it pretty much as written?

    Thanks so much!

    Personally, I don't start Easy Grammar until 3rd grade. I use English for the Thoughtful Child (not overly different from FLL) and I do hardly any writing until the child is reading really well. It's just too much stress for the child, IMHO.
