NOL Sample Stories: Group #3

Posted by Eileen Miller on January 18, 2013 at 8:05 PM

My son is continuing to write up to five to ten sentences in his summaries of stories now.  Even though some of these keywords do not take on the same meaning as they do in my son's paragraphs, it is a fun way to learn bible verses.  We enjoyed all of these stories, writing paragraphs, and researching bible verses.  When a child learns to choose a keyword(s), it also helps them learn that the meaning of various words is important within the context of their sentences.  It is also greatly beneficial and enjoyable to learn research skills for a variety of biblical passages.  This is especially true when one chooses from ideas that they've created themselves within their own writings...the child's paragraph.  The approach fosters a sense of confidence in the writing process.
