I Love Homeschooling, But I Hate Teaching Writing – HIRL Episode113

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Sharing is caring!

Free homeschooling podcast about teaching your kids to write.Do you struggle with teaching writing to your homeschool kids? This is the episode for you.

As homeschool parents, some of us were not given great tools for writing in our own education, so when it comes to teaching the subject, we already feel ill-prepared. Others of us are great writers and love to write, but we have no idea how to teach our kids how to take great ideas from their head and put them into words on paper.

We are joined in the studio by Kim Kautzer who developed Write Shop writing program for homeschoolers. During our interview Kim encourages our listeners by providing the basic steps to get over the writing roadblocks you may have in your homeschool. If writing is the “big but” in your homeschool, you need to listen to this episode of HomeschoolingIRL.
