I have been remiss in keeping up with my blog because of traveling throughout April and May. I did, however, visit with the many home school parents that came to my workshops and stopped by my booth at the conferences I attended in Cincinnati, Alaska, and Texas. The main topic of our discussions was the application of writing and language arts into their children’s curriculum in a meaningful and enjoyable way. I kept hearing “My child hates to write, so what do I to motivate him or her?” We all know how difficult language arts and writing are to teach, and what works for some may not work for others, so I hope that the answers I provided at the conferences have helped. If you have questions about teaching and motivating your reluctant writer, leave a comment here.
