My oldest son writes a letter (or more) each week for his copy work. He likes keeping in touch with his friends and grandparents that live far away and he LOVES getting mail. Lately he's been asking to write to all kinds of different people... so one letter went off to Derek Jeter from the New York Yankees and another is going to his favorite author this week. Letter writing is so rewarding in so many ways that it is perfect for a homeschooling family to incorporate into the daily schedule of seat work.
My middle son LOVES to craft things and is constantly drawing, coloring, sketching, cutting, glueing and taping...!!!! He made this really neat giraffe one morning before the rest of the family was even up and going! Every shape was individually cut out and then positioned together. He's so clever! These creations make me smile and smile!
