A daily (or weekly) journal is always an easy start. They can just write about what they did and how they felt about it - or you can give them writing "prompts." Examples:
The thing that makes me angriest is... If I were a boy(girl), I would... I would love to vacation in...
The holiday I like most is... What nice manners kids in homeschool group have.. What I did that could be called bullying... Why I don't like cabbage...
Why Mommie had the crazy neighbor arrested.. (LOL - I did!) Why I should never talk to someone who is unzipping his pants... (neighbor did)
In other words, have the child write about what is going on in his life and how he feels about it..

I really like IEW. I have certain issues with it -- the example writing is not at the highest (but then, I'm a lawyer -- I pick apart writing for a living). However, for teaching organization and rewriting the program is one of the best out there. My daughter (6th grade) has made a lot of progress in the last year using this program.
Both have DVD teaching
Igniting your Writing is cheap and something you could do on your own with him.
