We are obsessed with IEW! In my home, we have been using IEW for over 7 years and it has never disappointed us. PAL was my first son's introduction to this amazing curriculum. So many wonderful memories were created as he progressed through his Phonics Farm, fun phonics games, and even farm themed writing. It became a family tradition to pull out the PAL each time a child of mine was ready to read and write. And with great joy the older children got involved with the teaching and playing process.

As they grew older, we continued on this journey with Bible Heros, Ancient History Based Writing Lessons, Fix It Grammar, Phonics Zoo and now Structure and Style. Each of my three oldest children have come to love the materials IEW has to offer. Not only has their love for writing developed, but their language arts in general has excelled. Each of my three oldest kids have displayed their talents and confidence in different ways. My oldest is writing stories, my youngest is journaling to her heart's content and my middle son is constantly looking for new words to add to his vocabulary.

We love IEW and I hope that these resources and materials will bless you as much as it has blessed us.
