journal writing

Filed under: Bubba, writing

Before we began this homeschool year, Bubba was excited about keeping a journal. Now that she has to write in it twice a week, she has decided that it is boring and that she doesn’t like it. So, we’ve been discussing different things we could do to practice writing instead of journaling. She decided that writing letters is the way to go. Plus, this way, she will get more mail from the people that reply. (She always laments her lack of mail, save for the monthly Highlights subscription.) I have a few links saved on the computer for different penpal programs, but I didn’t think that we’d be ready for that this year. Maybe I should think again. I guess this is what’s so wonderful about schooling at home, being able to roll with her changing tastes and take things in different directions when she gets bored. I think all of our extended family members will enjoy getting the letters, too. So it’s a win-win all around.
