So the month is almost over and I totally forgot that November was National Novel Writing Month. So, we are going to do ours in December instead. We’ll be putting down some of our regular work and focus on writing a (short) novel and holiday activities. On the young writer’s program site they have a workbook to help kids write their own novel. I’m not going to set a word count goal for us this year, instead we’ll focus on just getting a story written, illustrated, and self-published. The recommendation for 1st grade is 300-3,000 words.
We recently found the website Kerproof which has really caught X’s attention. So I am hoping we can use that as a tool also. I’m really excited that he’s interested in this. He has such a creative mind, always coming up with ideas for cool futuristic inventions- I just know this is going to be a fun project! We’ll keep you posted as we make progress. No more school this week for Thanksgiving break!
