The Webinar classes are off to a great start! We had a blast during our Level 1 Week 1 lesson. Here’s a clip of the Shepherd Boy lesson:
Writing Foundations is a tutorial writing program designed to build a solid foundation of powerful writing skills for students ages ten and up. Using principles gleaned from the Institute for Excellence in Writing, Ms. B has designed a unique curriculum that allows students to experience and practice the structure and style of quality written work. Students will grow in their writing skills through stylistic exercises, outlines, drafts, revisions, grammar lessons, vocabulary quizzes, games, and much more. Writing Foundations offers classes locally in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area, and world wide via Webinar.
I just used The Institute for Excellence in Writing Linguistic Development Through Poetry Memorization program to make handwriting practice pages for my daughter’s handwriting workbox this year. I am so excited to finally have handwriting content that will hold her interest and have purpose. She’s my “funny bunny” of the three and enjoys everything laced with humor. Thus, I used poems like “Ooey Gooey” and “Rebecca, Who Slammed Doors for Fun and Perished Miserably” by Hillaire Belloc. I also added “Be Glad Your Nose is On Your Face” by Jack Prelutsky to round out the 23 weeks of lessons. I printed 4 of each lesson, so she will practice the same poem for 4 days in a row, and we will practice them out loud along the way as well. I am so thrilled with these pages, I just had to share. We’re using Pre-Cursive slanted font at this time. You can download them for your own family use below.
All right, I did it again, only this time in Modern Cursive. Have fun!
Bonus: “After the Party” by William Wise
