Letter-writing is a big part of our homeschool. I love having the kids write letters because it helps them with their dictation and handwriting, and gets them thinking about what is going on in their lives and about the person they are writing to. As part of our lessons, Bunny writes one letter a week independently, and James writes one letter a week with me by his side. Before Christmas he chose to write a "letter" to our local newspaper in answer to a question that was posed in the kid section. He was chosen to be published! Here's his answer to "What is a gift you can give that doesn't cost any money?"
Good job, James!
