I'm not a home schooling or unschooling mama. My kids are in public school, however, I'm fairly sure you wise moms can help me out. I'm looking for a writing curriculum to help my child out. According to my son's school he really struggles with writing. These issues are affecting his other classes as his school is really big on written projects in all subjects including reading, social studies, etc.
The areas that it seems to me my son struggles with are 1. Just getting started. He really struggles to get the initial ideas generated, and simply get pencil to paper and get started. 2. Organization. Not just how to organize the paper, but also how to keep track of all the pieces and parts while he works on it.
I think I can work with him on the first one. My feeling is that it's a bit of perfectionism, and confidence.
I really need help teaching him the second part. I'd love a good curriculum to help him organize his thoughts and keep track of it all while putting it together.
