One of the best things I started doing this year in our homeschool is daily creative writing. We had done creative writing in the past, but there were a few problems. I started to notice at the end of last school year that these problems needed to be addressed head on. That’s when I decided to stop trying to go with the pre-planned curriculum and try something new.
If you like your pre-planned curriculum, that is great. I am in no way saying in this post that it is all around bad. But for my kids, creative writing from a boxed curriculum doesn’t work. They need a different approach because they are just, well, different.
