Brave Writer spotlight: Sarah
From Brave Writer mom, Kerry:
Sarah is 11 [and attends] Bridges Virtual Academy. [Her] curriculum is science based for the most part, because that is where she finds a lot of joy.
I spontaneously created the project [above]; I was tired of seeing her bored with heavy writing projects. I am inspired by the Brave Writer lifestyle and am grateful for the emails and blog posts that Julie shares. They are a gift. I find that the more trust and freedom I give Sarah in writing, the more beautifully she does.
The cards came from this set.
Lots of opportunities for learning, we worked on the following:
Capitalization of proper nouns
Interpretation of a subject
Visual cues from artists
In the end her only question was, “Why did St. Peter need to be freed?” which I found quite witty. She decided on her own to categorize the adjectives into “The angel” and “The background.”
She’s a busy girl and a great student, I am so proud of her.
All the best,
