Brave Writer Blog Roundup!

Brave Writer Blog RoundupEver wonder how other homeschooling families implement the Brave Writer Lifestyle? Here are several bloggers who share how they do it (click on each link for the full post):

Language Arts Lately “Fourth grade has turned out to be such a funny time for language arts.  Such an in between time.” ~Farrar, I Capture the Rowhouse

Word Games “I am trying to make Wednesdays Word Games day now. We have played some word games before, but the trick is to make it into a routine. We just discovered Rory’s Story Cubes and I think they were the “push” we needed.” Alexandra, Life on a Canadian Island

Family Learning – Week In Review “Messes were made.  Crafts exploded across tables. The chest freezer thawed partially when the cord got knocked out of the outlet. I cooked a lot of unexpected meals thanks to that one.  😉  Life is never dull!” ~Tristan, Our Busy Homeschool 

A few of my favorite things Brave Writer is “so much more than a language arts program.” ~Lori, If I had a blog…

Impromptu Nature Walk “On our way home from a co-op field trip (the kids got to tour Popeye’s Chicken & Biscuits behind the scenes), Kathryn and I stopped on the side of the road to check out a little body of water and some plants.” ~Michelle, Oh, Sweet Honey Iced Tea

Tuesday tea time, hold the tea “Today we decided to take tea time and poetry on the road. We headed to our local library to return several books and pick out some new ones.” ~AspieMom, The Heathen Homeschooler

Poetry Tea Time Resources “Poetry Tea Time has been a part of our weekly routine for a while now, and it’s something we all look forward to with eager anticipation…What I love about it is there’s really no agenda, other than to slow down, eat a snack, drink something, and read some poetry. I don’t have a preconceived idea about which poems we’ll read (though sometimes I do pick something out in advance)…” ~Amy, Hope Is the Word

Cozy Homeschooling Spotlight: Julie Bogart of Brave Writer “I have listened to all the Brave Writer podcasts, and the most recent fleshed out the ‘one thing’ concept with practical pointers. It’s safe to say that it has impacted me profoundly and has set a new course for the way I think about teaching and learning.” ~Stephanie, Less Makes Room for More
