Whenever I flip through Trish Kuffner's books I find some fun or inspiring thought. This week we started a family newspaper based on her idea. What a great family building activity to encourage writing! It has "homeschool" written all over it, don't you think?
The girl's and I sat down together and came up with some topics we thought we might like to include. Once the stories were assigned and completed, Faith typed and formated them in Microsoft Publisher. Another great skill.
They are really excited about it.
A few of our top stories this week?*
"Hailey has Arrived" by Sarah Jones;
"The Great Detective Agency" by Michaela Jones (the girls have formed a detective agency to uncover household mysteries like what's that terrible smell in the bathroom and why isn't it going away?);
"Mother's Day" by Faith Jones reporting on how they celebrated their Mama. I'll just say breakfast in bed was really nice. : )
I love reading about our home life in their own words. What a treasure.
