I recently had my Creative Writing Prompts as a Facebook Fan Freebie but it seemed like some had problems with downloading it. So I have decided to put this up on my blog so your able to grab it with out any problems.
This writing prompt printable is set up for grades K – 8. As you can see in the picture above the oldest students don’t have the option of drawing. They have instructions on what to write and can get creative from there. From Kindergarten through maybe early middle school you have the lines for each grade and a space for pictures. There are instructions on what to draw and write.
The kids and I had a chance to recently review Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart DVD. I think this is one that we will watch again and again. I thought it was a great family movie.
It starts out in Edinburgh in 1874, which was the coldest day in history. A little boy named Jack was born and his heart was frozen solid.

Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking. I think that all of us spend way to much time on electronics. I have been wanting to make more memorable moments with the kids. I don’t want them to grow up and say well I spent so much time on playing video games we didn’t do anything fun.

So we have been adding in more game nights and going places just to get out of the house.
Today I am joining in Field Trip Friday a day late, it is hosted by Chestnut Grove Academy. This isn’t a new field trip for us and we go to the fishery a few times a year in both spring and fall. My favorite time to go is in the fall when the leaves are changing and it’s much cooler.
Today was a dreary day and the kids have been sick for the last couple weeks. We really needed to get out of the house. It was chilly, cold, and rainy. We decided that since C.D. “BUZZ” Besadny Anadromous Fisheries Facilities was having their open house today, we would check it out. We have never been there during the open house.
I have heard so many wonderful things about Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW), that when we had the chance to review it I was really excited. I have been wanting to teach my son how to write better and understand some of the things he is writing. He isn’t very good with sentences and paragraphs. Now parts of speech he is pretty good at, which was his strength as we worked through this.
