Homeschool Wednesday: Daily Blog Review

Creative writing is an essential skill. College freshmen are expected to know their way around a basic essay. Many a homeschooled college student has complained about their lack of writing experience/preparation before hitting college. Proof that writing is one of the most intimidating subjects to teach for many homeschoolers. Starting young and being consistent is the answer.

Children are naturally creative and curious-the basic skills needed to write great stories! What they lack is the fine motor control that makes the physical aspect of writing an easy and enjoyable experience. (Dictation, audio recording...) But, that's a whole different post.....

Homeschoolers who need guidance in teaching writing can find a wide range of information at today's blog: Judith Darling's Teacher and Homeschool Writing Blog. Hosted by the Razzle Dazzle Learning Company, this blog contains posts about writing tips, writing activities, and additional useful resources.

This post contains an idea for a beginning of the year writing assignment. Great way to kick off the new school year! And this post talks about what truly develops a child's writing ability....writing every day.

Happy writing!
