Bindis n Bulldust Weekly Roundup 

Inspiration – 

“To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.” —Anonymous

Reading – 

This week  I have been looking at Practice Makes Perfect: Mastering Writing by Gary Robert Muschla.  Geared at ages 10 to 14 but perfect for homeschooling ideas. The book is structured into four parts:

  • Finding and Developing Ideas for Writing
  • Writing the Draft
  • Revision
  • Proofreading

Each part has exercises and worksheets. It is a great one for honing in on writing areas that need more attention.

Listening to – 

Oh I could cry about this one.  We have been listening and watching Essentials in Writing – Where Students Learn to Write in the format of a DVD.  Unfortunately Master Bulldust15 has the first DVD scratch and we have came to a halt until we can get it polished and fingers crossed repaired.  NOT HAPPY JAN!!!

Loving – 

We are loving the rain!!! I hope it was wide spread there are so many of us up here desperately needing rain. We ended up with 46 ml overnight. We did lose our power for the night, it was quite a light show.

    Re the DVD put it in the freezer overnight, sometimes that ‘fixes’ the scratch enough to let you play
    and then burn a copy and put your good one away
