As the final pillar of the Reading, Writing, ‘Rithmetic pyramid, it’s important to know how to teach writing. But when should you start? Why is it so important? And what are the best curricula for teaching the mechanics of writing? We here at the Happy Homeschooler Podcast have answers to all these questions, as well as in depth discussions about how to teach each element of writing, whether spelling, grammar, or composition. And be sure to stay to the end to hear our hosts discuss the Big Question dominating their homeschooling groups. School is back and The Happy Homeschooler Podcast is there for you every step of the way!
