      Wow, Pat! I’m excited too. I’ve attended a handful of Twitter parties, but I’m still learning the ropes myself. Thrilled to have three wonderful blogging moms helping me out!

    Writing came naturally to me but has been a challenge so far with my oldest daughter. I’ve been following you on facebook and am interested in trying your curriculum with my children.

      You’re definitely not alone, Leslie; I hear that often. It was true for me as well!

    My biggest concern for teaching writing, lately, is making the time to do it right!

    Thanks for hosting a twitter party, Kim. You’re a constant blessing.

    My biggest concern for writing is my son’s low muscle tone in his hands or fine motor difficulties. It take a lot of effort to physically write so that causes fatigue and frustration for him.

    One of my children struggles with written language, and I really need a way to help him!

    My biggest writing challenge is with my son who’s in kindergarten. He hates it! Every day, when we get to writing class time, it’s tears and fits.

    He has some serious focus problems, so anything that takes some stamina he deems “boring”.

    My biggest challenge is making time to do it :). I really need to schedule it in my kiddos’ planners and make sure it happens.

    Anne: Letting children dictate, especially when they experience fatigue or frustration, is a great way for them to express their ideas without the limitations and fear of having to write them down on their own. I would encourage you to share the pencil as much as he needs until his fine-motor skills are more developed.

    Angie: I’m sorry it’s so painful for you and your little guy! He may not be ready for writing quite yet (as is typical of boys). Here’s an article that may encourage you and give you some tips!

    my concerns for writing include getting my children motivated to want to write, increasing their vocabulary and teaching them grammar.

    My biggest challenge is that I try to do to much or everything at once…I need to learn to not worry or stress if they aren’t doctors by the end of the week.
