Three Writing Tips to Help Reluctant Learners
We started Journey Down the Rabbit Trail writing membership because of my reluctant writer. Regular writing programs didn’t work for him because he lacked confidence and drive when it came to writing. He didn’t even want to start because he simply didn’t know how to! I knew we needed to give him some Rabbit Trails magic to make things to change.
On top of this, though, I also needed something that he could be flexible with. Many times reluctant learners need the freedom and flexibility to change things up just a bit. This can easily be transfered over to writing. I came up with three writing tips to help reluctant learners so that you can help your kiddo who may have this same struggle.Read more

It’s no secret that we love learning through literature in our home.

I wanted to focus on teaching my kids about some amazing black women that influenced history, so that brings us to the NEWEST Rabbit Trails through Literature lesson- a free Rosa Parks unit study that I’m sharing with you!Read more

Keeping Homeschool Fun with Vocabulary Quest!
As my kiddo gets older, we’ve been moving away from some subjects and moving onto others. Spelling has been something we’ve decided to drop as he’s entered middle school, but I also felt like that took away an aspect of language arts in helping him learn new words. That’s when it hit me- we should look into starting some vocabulary lessons in our homeschool!Read more
Why I waited until middle school to start using a writing curriculum in our homeschool
As soon as our kids pick up a pencil as wee little ones, we encourage them to write. We teach them their letters, how to spell their names, and other simple words. It comes as a shock to many people that I’ve chosen to hold off on using a writing curriculum in our homeschool until my son hit middle school age. But, hear me out. I have a good reason and I’m excited to share it with you.Read more

Cursive writing. It’s sadly a dying art. But, really, it’s so much more than an art! Cursive writing isn’t being taught as much as it used to, so it is something that I wanted to focus on in our homeschool. Why is learning cursive writing so important, though?Read more
