Re: I need LA suggestions please - we are really struggling!

Stack the Deck writing program? We're using Check the Deck (gr 3/4) and it has oral lessons that work up to written lessons. At the end of each topic is a writing lesson but there are activities that work the student into the writing. I bought a used student copy from half.com. I don't have a TM, but the work seems pretty straight forward.

I would look at Write Shop. It's a great program for "reluctant" writers, makes writing fun, and builds in slow steps.

My dd1 was behind in writing and grammar at the beginning of this year. We got introduced to Evan Moore workbooks and they have been a big hit. She enjoys then, does them independently 95% of the time and is just about at grade level now. I resisted workbooks for a long time because they seemed boring, but she like them so whatever works!

I would especially suggest Super Sentences.
