Journey Down the Rabbit Trail Monthly Writing Membership

What if you could explore the people behind the books? The amazing authors and illustrators that create the picture books we love so much. What if you could cultivate an atmosphere where you kids don’t only want to learn to write, but fall in love with learning to write? You can do both of these things with the brand new monthly writing membership, Journey Down the Rabbit Trail.

Amazing writing lessons every single month

Rabbit Trails has always been about amazing literature. Beautiful, award winning, classic, wonderfully illustrated books are a part of every single curriculum we put out. This got us thinking, “What if we can feature these amazing books in a different way? How can we include author studies in Rabbit Trails?” We also saw our children struggle with one single subject: writing. How can we encourage them to love this part of their homeschool journey? To not dread writing, but actually look forward to it? Journey Down the Rabbit Trail monthly writing membership was the answer!!

By being a part of Journey Down the Rabbit Trail, you will receive beautiful lessons every single month! These lesson include author and illustrator studies from award winning titles, gorgeous book suggestions, copywork, fun hands on activities, and month long writing projects to take them even further down the Rabbit Trail. Each writing lesson will include a brainstorming activity and multi-step writing activity.

That’s not all. Every lesson also includes a full Bible study to compliment the lesson that includes writing prompts, and a beautiful lesson plan calendar to have the entire month laid out for you. Plus, you will receive special member perks for being a part of Journey Down the Rabbit Trail, too! The very best part is that you don’t need to purchase these books every month if you don’t want to. There will be a read aloud video of the main book that goes along with the lesson, too.

How does the membership work?

This August, we are still doing our Summer Reading Camp where we enjoy all subjects through the membership. Starting in September, our lessons will shift to our brand new, amazing writing lessons that your children are sure to love! “Mom, when can we work on writing?” That just came from my son’s lips for the first time ever, as he’s so excited to get started on this new writing journey!
