Well, we are mid-year and I know one thing that is DEFINITELY going to change for next school year!
Why....because the program my Mom is using for their writing program, just isn't cutting it anymore! The boys at 8th and 9th grade are beyond worksheets, beyond cursive practice, beyond dictionary work! Not bashing the wonderful writing program my Mom came up with for them! It has worked the past 3 years! Love you MOM!!!
But....they are tired of it! I am tired of fighting them on it! They get bored easily and are doing sloppy work. Therefore, Grandma is tired of fighting with them on it. And since she lives 6 hours away...it isn't exactly easy for her to pop over to deal with it.
So, together....she and I are on a mission to find something that works and works well!
Right now we are checking into a homeschool online writing curriculum! We have several things in mind! These would be tied in with physical writing as well! Never want them to forget pen and paper!
So....guess what I am saying is....my faithful readers.... do you have a writing program for your older kids that you like? One you dislike and warn people from?
I am looking for input!
