What Are Learn-for-a-Month (LFAM) Writing Books?

The Write-for-a-Month (WFAM) and Write On! (WO) series of books is from Learn-for-a- Month’s (LFAM) line of digital publications. LFAM is a new primarily-digital arm of the small- press homeschool publisher, Character Ink Press, and houses a variety of month-long writing books, grammar downloads, readers, and more for teachers, parents, tutors, co-op leaders, and homeschoolers.

The WFAM and WO books are writing/composition books of two to four lengthy lessons each, between 50 and 120 pages per book (depending on the level). These books contain writing projects based on old books/current movies/characters that children and adults love or historical characters/animals/nature topics (indicated by titles/covers). The programs contain all types of writing, especially focusing on research reports, essays, and stories.

The projects in both of the series all use the author’s signature “Directed Writing Approach,” which takes students by the hand every step of the way from prewriting (brainstorming, character and plot development, research, etc.) to skill building (for projects requiring certain skills, such as quotes or imagery or persuasion, etc.) to outlining (based on the type of writing) to writing rough drafts to editing (via the Checklist Challenge) to final copy. Each project has detailed samples for students to see how the project was written by another student (a rarity in writing programs) and in-depth lessons of all of the skills needed in order to complete that project.
