2.0 out of 5 stars A little too difficult
I purchased this book along the reading, spelling and math books for 1st grade. It's a little too difficult for 1st graders compared to the other books. The child can't read the instructions or paragraphs on their own and requires a lot of help from adults unlike the other books. Also, the writing space for the child is too small for children that are learning to write...

2.0 out of 5 stars A little too difficult, July 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Writing Skills: Grade 1 (Flash Kids Harcourt Family Learning) (Paperback)
I purchased this book along the reading, spelling and math books for 1st grade. It's a little too difficult for 1st graders compared to the other books. The child can't read the instructions or paragraphs on their own and requires a lot of help from adults unlike the other books. Also, the writing space for the child is too small for children that are learning to write. My son could not get the whole sentence on the one line that is provided for it. I had to use additional writing paper for him to complete the lesson.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as other grade levels in the series, October 23, 2013

This review is from: Writing Skills: Grade 1 (Flash Kids Harcourt Family Learning) (Paperback)
I'm a fan of this series overall and we've had a good experience with other grade levels.

Like other reviewers, I find the words used in this book to be a little advanced for first semester First Graders which is why I waited to use it until the second semester (words like "coin"; the oi sound isn't taught until later.)

The very first page asks students to circle the nouns amount other words on a page. Included on that page are the words float and walk. Float and walk can be both verbs and nouns (i.e. parade float and Breast Cancer walk). This is extremely confusing for students just learning the parts of speech and no mention of the dual usage of these words is ever made.

I understand the book was a used book. I didn't expect to have so many pages with writings. I had to erase them all.
