I was wondering if any one could recommend a good writing curriculum for a 5th-6th grader, my son is a 6th grader and right now we are doing an online school,(don't ask long story)! My son if you just say write something he freaks out and says I don't know what to write, or how to do it. I am looking for something for the summer for him to work on, I was wanting something that explains the different types of writing, ways to do it, gives examples and then they do it, workbook format, video etc, and either Christian or non Christian will work. Thanks.

what they need.just points if that help sorry then the three different of writing paper
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.
