I love to write! However, for some reason I have always shied away from doing a formal teaching with my kids on how to write. Paragraph writing is not something that we have really focused on. Recently, I've been thinking that since ManBoy is nearing High School, it's high time that we start to focus on the mechanics of writing good paragraphs.
My kids are constantly writing little stories for their own pleasure, (I guess they've inherited my love for writing!) but I've never really pointed out the many errors in their spelling and grammar. I preferred to focus on giving them praise for their creativity and imagination. I guess it really is time to start having them correct the mistakes in their written work as well.

Dee Trope married her hero (John) in 1993. They homeschool 3 teenagers, Manboy (98), Fashionista (00) and RoboBoy (01). RoboBoy and Dee both have Aspergers Syndrome, also known as High Functioning Autism. Dee is a Jesus Freak who loves to crochet and write. She is also a runner. She runs about 3 miles 3 times a week and has participated in numerous 5K races. Her goal is to increase her distance to 10k and eventually be able to run a half marathon. Dee considers herself to be a “geek in training”. As an Aspie, Dee is generally happy to stay home, but loves keeping in touch with her friends via Facebook and Instant Messaging.
You might find her on Facebook (her favorite social media), G+, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, or even Youtube! She keeps a personal blog in which she shares from her quiet times. You can find it at http://dee-lightfullmoments.
