Back To School - Blogging As Language Arts

One great thing about homeschooling is the flexibility in the schedule. After nearly 2 months off to help with fixing up the RV and trailer, closing up the Homestead and packing for the road, not to mention celebrating the holidays, 10 year old Yak is back to school. He is still working at the conventional "6th" grade level. He is taking more control over his schedule, often completing his work late at night so he can have the daylight hours free for his fort-building work and other projects. I check his work first thing in the morning , write his assignments in his record book and make sure he reads for his minimum 2 hours. Also, during the day sometime, I will sit him down and go over any particular difficulties he may be having in math, spelling, grammar, etc.

This past week he has started blogging. I supervise each post just to make sure everything looks good. I am also his final spelling/grammar check. It's really all his. Sometimes we discuss why using certain phrases may not be appropriate and we discuss online safety issues as we go along. I think he is learning a lot as he works on his blog and he enjoys having people other than just mom see his work.

We would like to invite everyone to check out his blog: and please comment. In fact, I would love it if you would leave a comment here, as well.

Stop by again, soon!
