This is EXCELLENT! I am almost at the end and I love being able to give them examples. VERY thorough and complete and I am using almost every page!

Even though there were a lot of pages I didn't need, it is very complete. I liked the student poem samples and used several for springboard models, but it should be noted that many are too religious (Christian) to be distributed in a secular, public school. I purchased both the Grade 6 and the Grade 7 and there's a lot of duplication.
