Writing-Prompts, Books and Online Programs

I really like to get my kids to write about things that they are interested in, but sometimes, it is really difficult to come up with ideas of my own.

Make sure you also check out our post about online math programs and online English Language Art Programs as well!

I bought my kids a composition notebook so I can see how they have progressed with their writing and then find writing prompts online. I am including links to some of the writing prompts that might be helpful for you as well. There are lots of writing programs as well, if you decide not to do my method. And, that is perfectly ok too!!

Just remember, writing is an essential part of communicating.
