We are still living and loving the homeschool life and I have been trying to think of a way for the kids to get more writing experience. It’s tough to find reasons to write in this computer driven time!

Last week, I stopped at the dollar store and picked up some silly, monster themed notebooks and told the kids I’d like to start journaling with each of them; not a private journal, but one in which they write notes to us parents and we write back. They were a little unsure of the idea at first, but it has quickly become so much fun for all of us!


They have used it to write out their Christmas list, request a specific dinner, ask about upcoming activities, etc. We all get excited to see what everyone wrote and we are noticing an improvement in handwriting already!

Nicer journals and pens will be happening for 2016!

    Good thinking, Mom and Dad…way to get those handwriting skills! I notice some one is using music notes too. Very cool!
