New to homeschooling, less than a month, and up until today I tried to similate a classroom. Boring.. But the good thing is I have started to discover what my 10 year old likes and what he doesn't like. For now we are foregoing the text book routine, except math, and we are going to read and explore and watch videos. History channel is awesome !
Well with that being said, I still feel like he needs to practice writing, and learn new vocabulary so I thought we would both start journaling. What can I do to encourage him to write in his journal ? Every day? a Few Times a Week ? And what about me being able to read what he has written ? He is 10, and even though drawing pictures and making up songs is awesome, I don't want his journal to be all about just that.
Thoughts, suggestions, ideas please. Thanks
