Today we restarted our writing group after taking a few months off over winter. We meet once a month at a local library, and whilst a couple parents facilitate the older children’s writing projects, a couple more keep the younger children enthralled with picture books.
This month’s theme was poetry. The children started with acrostic poems and limericks before some of them moved on to more self-directed forms. They were busy for a good hour and a half before the lure of the park became too hard to resist.
The children requested that they get to work on story writing next month. If you’re interested in coming along, email me for times and places at email@example.com.
