Re: I need LA suggestions please - we are really struggling!
I'm in agreement with not pushing writing. It seems my 5th grader is just now starting to get ready for it. We are gonna try the Five Finger Paragraph program this year. I just got it in though so I can't tell you much about it. We are also using Story Starters to help with imagination. You read the story and finish it yourself. Alot of times the problem is just not knowing what to write about. And it's a very thick book! Could probably last for 2 years.
