While I cannot SEE my students in person, I certainly become acquainted with them through their class behavior and writing. They have impressive manners and follow directions well. Undoubtedly, these characteristics make it a pleasure to teach them. Thank you, students! You and your supportive parents certainly rock my online world!
Online classes are relatively new on the homeschool scene. While they have been around for several years so far, only a portion of the homeschool community has ventured into this aspect of homeschooling. However, times are changing. More students are taking online classes.
Online classes provide your students with the technological knowledge that they will need to succeed in our digital world and in any career. In addition to helping students develop technological skills through the access of online classes from the comfort of their own homes, online writing classes offered here support parents in homeschooling the subjects of English and composition writing with the goal of providing an enjoyable and engaging experience for students.
Students today are native to technology – they were born into it, and they are growing up in a world where technology always has been and always will be a major part of their lives. They gravitate toward it, and they seem to have an innate sense of how to relate to technology. Understanding how our students relate to technology is a critical part of preparing them for the future.
So, bearing all that in mind, here are some of the benefits of having your students take an online class:
There are many options for ONLINE CLASSES – Fall 2019 Semester
I hope to meet YOUR student in the classroom this fall!
Everybody is eager for spring and looking forward to summer break. What better way to enjoy the end of the school year than to know that you have your writing class lined up for next school year! Now’s the time!
Enjoy spring (and summer!) by preparing for fall now!
I look forward to working with your students!
Are you counting the days until spring? It’s two months away, but this week Spring Semester’s writing classes begin!
Even if your students do not take a writing class this semester, encourage their writing daily with a writing journal. Winter is a wonderful season to begin a journal about the weather. Ask them to write how they feel about the winter storms and temperatures. Maybe they could make up a story that has a setting in the wintery mountains. Perhaps they could research a topic related to winter or start a nature journal.
Winter is the best time to begin a nature journal. Ask your child to select a tree or a plant that has no leaves right now and draw a picture of it in the journal. As the seasons change and the plant changes, students can update the journal with new drawings that will reflect the change in seasons.
Besides journals, writing can be done in many other ways, of course! Composing a letter to a grandparent or a pen pal and sending it via “snail mail” is a perfect writing opportunity. Once a letter is received in return, the enthusiasm to write again is sparked! Another idea is for you to dictate a grocery list to your child to write, and you’ll even teach some spelling of words such as broccoli, asparagus, and onions!
There is a plethora of opportunities to write daily outside of the formal academic setting. Writing is fun, and the enthusiasm can certainly be shared!
Happy winter writing!
