When I was in junior high, I enjoyed reading stories, writing to pen-pals, keeping a journal, and creating poetry. Fast forward a few years and now I blog about these passions: reading and writing. But now my “pen-pals” are my blog readers with whom I share book reviews, writing tips, insights on the process of writing historical fiction, and an occasional poem or two. Please leave a comment and join this conversation on literacy.
If you homeschool your children, you might want to check out this blog for a variety of helpful tips. Although the website appears to be dedicated to helping students find the appropriate online college, there are also numerous resources for students of all ages. The 101 suggestions (or "lifehacks") include links for math, planning, time management, history, and socialization.
