Has anyone used Time4Wriring courses? I'm wondering if it is worth it. I like the idea of having his writing graded by someone else. But the price gives me pause. Thoughts?

    I'm waaaaay to frugal to pay nearly $100 for only 8 weeks of classes. Eep!

    What do you use for writing? I was thinking if trying Essentials in Writing.

    Quoting KickButtMama:

    We didn't actually purchase a writing program. Instead I set up private blogs. The kids would write bout things they learned or did, like a journal. Before the 'article' was posted they would have to edit for proper grammar, references, etc. once a week I give them a writing assignment - like doing a book report, research assignment, etc. 

    for lessons in grammar, we use the free website -

    Have you looked at home2teach?

    Both websites seem cheaper than a tutor. Though personally, I would either use a curriculum or tutor before using an online class for writing.

    I'm kinda like kickbuttmama on this one though. I am too frugal. I would be hunting down and getting creative to implement a plan that was cheaper.
