House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

English today

I have the girls doing this for English today:

Create your own story

Drama Queen proclaimed she was doing every storyline offered.
She did too.

Starr is sitting next to her while DQ explains to her that they need a "noun" and asks Starr to give her the name of her favorite animal. She asks Starr for an "adjective" to desribe that animal. The parts of a sentence are discussed and carefully thought over. In their minds, the girls have an image of how they suspect the story will turn out.

Then the story is created and the final result is read. I hear squeals of giggling as DQ reads it aloud to Starr. That makes learning parts of the sentence fun.
