Creative Writing for Sixth Grade

Are you looking for new ways to incorporate creative writing into your child's curriculum? I had been for quite a while, and finally it hit me! I could use blogging to encourage my daughter to write creatively. I was a bit nervous at first, because we have been pretty conservative about our children's use of the internet. However, after doing a bit of research I found a few homeschooling blog sites that have protection against unwanted issues.

After going over these things, I found that I could work with one in particular. So, I signed her up. She began to get busy on the creative side of things, and had a great looking blog in no time. Then began the real work! She began writing about the simple things in life, her little adventures, and it was quite amazing. She couldn't get enough of it. She began writing and writing. The creative part began to come as well, it was absolutely amazing. We were stunned at the quality that she was producing as well and the quantity. Gone were the days of pressuring her to write creatively. It was the best move I ever made!
