Here to Help Learning-001

Are you looking for a strong writing course for your family?  Here to Help Learning with Mrs. Mora has paragraph writing for children in first to third grade and essay writing for those in fourth to sixth grade.  Each of those levels is called a Flight and has 32 lessons.  One lesson will be completed each week.

All of the Flights have been designed the same with different information.

  1. Pre-Flight Check List
  2. Flight Check-In
  3. Take Off
  4. Full Throttle
  5. Flying Solo

Your child will watch the videos and work on the assignments (like writing warm-ups) given in the videos on one day.  The second day they will complete the Flying Solo assignment.


Our Experience: 

B loves to write creatively and C does not, so I thought this program would work well for both of them.

B chose Flight 3 Essay Writing, because in this level he would work on writing a six chapter book.  I chose Flight 3 Paragraph Writing for C, because she is not keen on creative writing.  I thought this level would work better for her, because it would ease her into writing.

When we got the program they were both excited to give it a try.  We worked on printing out the weekly papers, getting it put into a binder, learning the Bible verse, and the different parts of each lesson.  Some parts of the lessons were the same in the different flights, so B and C were able to work on it together.

B worked on his solo work separately had a fun time doing it.  In the beginning C had a hard time with the writing warm-ups, but I did them with her and she ended up having a fun time.

Mama’s Thoughts:

  • I was really impressed with this homeschool writing curriculum.  I saw my children grow in their writing abilities.
  • I had fun watching the videos with the children and learning different ways of creative writing.
  • I liked watching the interviews with the different authors in B’s Flight 3 essay writing.
  • I thought Mrs. Mora’s enthusiam was catching and helped the children want to write.  She made me want to get out a pencil and paper and begin working on my own book.Logo

B’s Thoughts (boy, age 12, officially in sixth grade):   

I really liked Here to Help Learning.  Before this product, we did not do a lot of creative writing, something that I enjoy. 

I liked watching the videos on the website.  I liked when Mrs. Mora pretended to be a flight attendant. 

I liked the writing warm-ups, even though some of them were hard.  Here is a sample of a story I wrote.  One day a bear was climbing a skyscraper.  As he was climbing, the building began to lean.  It had almost tipped over on top of the bear, when his mother leaned on the other side.  The building still sagged lower and lower.  With one last desparate move, the mother pulled her cub off the side of the building, just as the skyscraper plunged into the water.  The End

I liked adding conflict to my story.  Originally I wasn’t going to add any conflict to my story, but then I learned about “character verses nature” conflict, and decided to some in my story.

I liked how much you learn from this program.  For example, I am learning about different types of writing styles, like metaphors.

I would highly recommend this program to kids of all ages.

 C’s Thoughts (girl, age 10, officially in fourth grade):

  • The writing warm-ups were hard at first, but it got easier as we did more.
  • I think that Here to Help Learning would be good for people my age, younger, and older.
  • Here is one of my writing warm-ups.  It was a hot day at the arena.  There was a dinosaur in the ring.  Joe, the matador, couldn’t believe his eyes.  When it was time for him to go into the ring, he hopped over the red fence.  The dinosaur was very scary.  Joe wanted to run away.  He knew he had to fight the dinosaur to keep his honor.  The End!
