Timberdoodle's review
Wordsmith Teacher Book
Provides teachers the answers to exercises found in Wordsmith.

About the Wordsmith Series
Have you ever felt overwhelmed with the slew of creative writing programs available for homeschoolers? As a curriculum provider, we have seen more writing programs than any sensible parent would ever want to see, and candidly, after a while they all look pretty much the same. So what stood out about the Wordsmith line?

No Slick Promises
To start with, the engaging exercises and doable assignments are pertinent for reinforcing the systematic process of thinking, organizing, writing, evaluating, and re-writing that is critical to any creative writing program. But ultimately, at the very core of the Wordsmith program is the honest reality presented by the author, Janie B. Cheaney, a regular columnist for World Magazine, that while her books will not always produce an enthusiastic and prolific writer, with the Wordsmith series, the actual skills of creative writing can be acquired by anyone. So if you need a language arts program that addresses creative writing in more depth, the Wordsmith series is the most effective, painless approach we have seen.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2017 Seventh-Grade Curriculum Kit!

Review: Wordsmith
"...The teacherís guide provided with this edition is very effective. Not only does it help with the grammar and basic structure that an answer key can provide, but in a conversational tone helps the parent understand how to evaluate his/her student both through encouragement and constructive criticism...The teacherís guide is excellent! It truly empowers the parent to work with his or her student to strengthen his writing. Iím very impressed..."

Worked for us November 5, 2008
Reviewer: Diana M. from Kokomo, IN  
Depending on a child's interest this can be very helpful in enlisting them in branching out into more creative writing.  It worked for us as my girls enjoyed the lay-out of the presentation of the course.  They thought it fun to be the newspaper reporter for a newspaper and get to write the news.
