Do A Lesson With Us - WriteShop Primary Book B

Header Image

Today I am excited to share a peek inside how our family has been using WriteShop Primary Book B.  You may recall that we received some fun happy mail back in December and I am super excited to begin using these materials with my girls this semester.  So let’s dive in…

As you can tell from the video, I am enjoying using this writing program with my 2 oldest girls this semester.  This program has been a perfect fit for both of them.  One daughter is writing at grade level and the other has limited writing experience.  I love that I can use the same level with both of them by helping my youngest with dictation and adding the advance prep activities, when needed, for my older daughter.  This alone is a huge time saver and sanity saver for this mama.  Plus, it is friendly on the budget by having both girls use the same program at the same time and I love that they are doing it TOGETHER, which is one of the main reasons we have chosen to homeschool.

As I said in the video, I really like that WriteShop Primary is an incremental writing program that gently teaches the writing process to children in elementary stages of learning.  It does this through a series of lessons with fun themes and the following steps:

  • Guided Writing – Teaching and modeling new skills
  • Pre-writing – Fun warm-up activities that point toward the main Writing Project
  • Brainstorming – Planning and organizing the Writing Project
  • Writing Project – The main focus of every lesson
  • Editing and Revising – Making simple improvements to the writing
  • Publishing the Project- Creating a final draft

As you can tell, the girls and I are really enjoying these lessons with WriteShop Primary Level B and I look forward to continuing the writing projects with them in the weeks ahead.  Stay tuned to my Facebook or Instagram page for updates as we go along. 

Happy Homeschooling Friends!

28 Days of Prayer For My Husband

Happy February Friends!!

I am super excited to kick off a little mini video series called 28 Days of Prayer For My Husband.  I don’t know about you but I can never pray enough for my hubby.  I thought February would be the perfect time to lift up my valentine a little bit more in prayer.  I hope these daily video prompts will be an encouragement to you and strengthen your pray life and your relationship with God.

Goodbye January…

IMG_E8845

You guys... Where has this month gone? It has been a super sweet season here for our family and I am so sad to see this month end. I have enjoyed all these crazy, busy, messy, and LOUD days around our home. I am behind on a ton of stuff and life is not perfect around here, but this is still such a sweet season of life and I want to hold onto it forever.

One of my resolutions for 2018 is to take more “everyday life”’videos of our little family. These are days that seem so ordinary now but I know they are treasures in my heart and I will long to go back and revisit them years from now. One simple way I am making this happen this year is through the 1 Second Everyday app. It is super easy to use and I am excited with how this 1st month has turned out. #OurDaysTogether
