.Question: What is your biggest struggle with teaching writing to your kids? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
My biggest struggle is how to teach writing in a way my son understands. It does not come naturally or easily to him at all, & it’s been hard to find ways to get him interested & engaged in writing.
I hope you get some encouragement from Tuesday’s workshop.
My biggest challenge is getting reluctant writers to believe they can write but that it’s a process that takes time.
Thanks for sharing. I hope the ideas I share on Tuesday encourage your reluctant writer.
The obstacles I face are getting them to do more than one copy of a paper, punctuation and spelling, and ordering paragraphs. They do not like to write at all.
Such a common problem when helping kids learn to write. Thanks for sharing & I plan to address this issue.
My biggest obstacle is time and quieting an 8 yr old rambunctious boy long enough to put pencil to paper.
My biggest obstacle is grading. My kids all love to write for fun (not so much when it’s assigned). I’m afraid I’ll grade too harshly and take the joy out of it.
I think grading is difficult for most moms & writing teachers. I shared a few concrete ideas on the workshop. Let me know if you need a few more ideas.
My biggest struggle is narrowing a topic, then finding current info on his technology-based interests. The two of us don’t seem to know how to be specific enough to search the net very well, either.
Thanks for sharing, Birdie. Although I don’t give specifics about searching the net, I do offer a few ideas about writing topics. Let me know if you want more specifics.
One of my biggest struggles in getting my child to journal is how to get started even when having a small idea. Even expanding on the idea more than 1 run on sentence. I m very new to teaching this and am not sure how to get my child to write much of anything. Complains about writing also.
I can understand why it’s so hard to teach writing, especially with the whining 🙂 I tried to address this in the workshop. If you still have questions, let me know.
As much as I LOVE to write it seems it is the hardest thing to teach, especially with my older boy who can over think Everything.
Thanks for sharing. I hope some of the workshop ideas help you.
