Free and Low Cost “Whole”istic Learning Opportunities: Writing

We believe in a “whole”istic approach to learning (which is generally free and low cost). So what does that mean to us for writing? is like this...  
  • Write letters to pen pals, homeschooling groups, folks in service, elderly in nursing homes, and family members.
  • Do Mad Libs for learning parts of speech.
  • Play games like go fish, old maid, matching, and others with high frequency words.
  • Meet authors at libraries or book stores.
  • Do puzzle books with word searches, acrostics, cryptograms,  and crosswords.
  • Learn morse code and send messages to each other.
  • Learn a word of the week together.
  • Keep an experiment notebook recording our experiments and results.
  • Keep a commonplace notebook for accumulating a collection of quotes.
  • Keep a devotional book for Bible readings.
  • Keep a nature notebook for recording interesting facts about things we are learning about.
  • Tell stories about family times, the day, or fairy tales.
  • Write thank you's to folks that have helped us with learning.

Wishing you homeschool blessings,
