Great Homeschooling Links for Writing

The following post is from Homeschool Classroom founder Angie of Many Little Blessings.

why read a book when you can write one

One area that many homeschoolers struggle with teaching is writing/composition.  In my house, when some of my kids struggle with writing, it is especially difficult for me as someone who has been writing stories since as long as I could write words.  Luckily, the Internet is full of ideas for writing activities and resources to help.

While not really about actual writing, these writing centers may inspire you to create a special place in your house for writing and other projects.
