I am still following along with the write a day for 31 days, and following the prompts from Five Minute Fridays. The prompt for Friday that I need to catch up on is Story…
My kids love to write stories. However, sometimes they need a little help getting their story into focus. I love to find homeschool curriculum that I can use to help them get their ideas out onto paper and make a story out of it!
When you have 3 school aged kids, finding curriculum for all of them can get expensive. With my membership to Schoolhouse Teachers, I can find curriculum for all of them for one low price!
When it comes to stories, I have found 3 great courses that I love to use with my kids to help them write a story.
Adventures in Writing is a great course for the elementary ages. Jan May is the instructor and in 14 days your child will have written a story similar to that of Charlotte’s Web. There is a simple lesson plan and everything you need to help your 8-12-year-old write a zany story that they will love to share for days and years to come!
Creative Storytelling from Charity Martinez is geared for Elementary to Middle School ages. This is a 15-day lesson plan that comes with a lesson plan for you as the teacher. Each day your child will add more details to their journal with this step by step guide on how to make their story come to life!
Creative Writing is available for high school students written by Carrie Daws. This course digs in deeper to the writing techniques that your child will need to get their story published. Your child will work on developing their character, scenes and dialogue as well as spending time editing their work to get it ready to publish. The final unit of the course is actually fully geared towards to publishing your child’s story.
I love having the option to find a course for my child to write and develop a story no matter their age. Having this option allows them to be creative and I love it all!
