Level 2 is the only book in the Writing Strands series from which parents must teach. Level 2 is a manual for the parents of children about seven years old. It introduces the skill of giving thoughts and experiences to others in written form. When a child can write by himself (spelling doesn't count) a sentence similar to, "We live on the corner," or, "The dog is big," the child is ready for this level. Even at this level, the exercises produce reports, essays or pieces of fiction.
