Hi I have just written a blog about why it is good for kids to have a penpal – one of the obvious benefits is of course getting children writing. My son really enjoyed writing this postcard, I just wish he loved his homework as much! I really hope you like the blog :
Thank you for sharing this information!
Thank you for sharing these videos and downloads. I can’t wait to use some of the ideas when we start up home schooling again this year with my 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter.
My biggest obstacle when working with my 8 year old son is that he gets frustrated when asked to write even a sentence, I get frustrated with him and it ends with both of us upset and angry. I love the idea of the shared writing, I think he would be very receptive to this method and it would work well for both of us.
Loved these practical ideas shared in this video. I’m not sure I could get my 12 year old to do this nor my 16 year old. they will think it is too “babyish”. Is there a way to adapt these ideas for older kids or those who think they are?!
My eight year old son has a great imagination, but getting him to put it onto paper is a struggle. Writing for him has to be done on his time, if I ask for even a sentence he shuts down and I get the ‘I can’t think of anything to write’ response.
girl age 12 rising 7th grader has difficulty providing detail and maintaining focus in her writing. Her vocabulary is quite limited for a child her age. She also struggles with comprehension and has done since elementary, although she has improved with more intensive instruction.
