Here are a few tips to make writing more exciting this month:
- Let your kids write with pen. Our favorites are erasable gel pens! Emma likes to change colors as she writes each new paragraph, and I like that there are no scribbled out mistakes.
- Print all of the prompts, and assemble them into a writing notebook. Let your child choose a writing prompts each day. This gives them a little more control over the assignment and encourages them to write about what sparks their interest each day.
- Don’t worry about editing and proofreading each writing assignment. Just let them write. At the end of the week (or end of the month), have them pick a piece to edit and publish. You can go through the whole editing, revising, rewriting process at this time. This eliminates the stress that comes with producing a perfect piece each time.
Every month this year, I will release a brand new set of writing prompts. By the time they’ve all been released, you will have 365 elementary writing prompts to use in your homeschool!
