Are you hitting a wall when it comes to teaching #Writing‬   in your #homeschool ?
We use a great curriculum to help teach the writing process; but even when a curriculum is great, you will have times when everyone just needs something new and different.

Rather than keep purchasing new curriculum, consider breathing new life into your subject.

Here's how we have fun with writing and how we do it without picking up a pen or pencil.

I wrote "Supporting Young Writers in Your Homeschool with Great Literature" to contribute to +iHomeschool Network link up called How to Teach Without a Curriculum

Ah, yes ... THAT day when meltdowns happen because... Math, or Writing.
Tears streaming, books slamming closed, pencils flying.
It can happen.

We all have a subject we find hard, or boring.

As adults, we have the advantage of maturity and experience to know that those subjects are still essential building blocks for future endeavors.  Our kids, however, just know that for them it is hard or boring.

So, how can we help our kids move past the self-blocking and start moving towards embracing that dreaded subject?

" Hint: The answer does not include pulling out your hair or giving a lecture."

But... It does include you spending time together and accentuating the positive. smile emoticon

Hey #homeschooling mom and dad, how is it going?

Are you feeling overwhelmed and stressed?  You might want to consider letting go of a few things in your #homeschool

And remember, we all go about this homeschool thing a little differently.

Here are some ideas to help you keep an open mind and to not be afraid to change things up if need be.
