Homeschool Buyers Co-op BBB Business Review

Free Writing Tips

The Co-op is pleased to present free writing tips from Julie Bogart, the creator of the popular Brave Writer writing curriculum.

Silly Writing

Have your kids list ten items they notice around the house. For example: banana, dog, sofa, painting, coffee pot, chair, magazine, sink, poster, jacket. Then ask them to make up a funny paragraph using each of these items in a new and nonsensical way.

Example: I walked through the sofa on my way to relaxing on the coffee pot. Then I slipped into my poster and carried the jacket outside so I could water the painting hanging on the dog. Next, I poured myself a glass of magazine and munched on the sink before putting my dishes in the chair and turning on the banana.

Such an exercise can release tension, provide a good laugh, and encourage reluctant or weary writers.
