Reading, Writing, and Crafting for Mother's Day

May 12, 2017

Mother’s Day is upon us! And there’s nothing moms treasure more than a handmade gift from their children. It's easy to combine with reading and writing activities for a homeschool project.

The resources below will get your teens reading poetry, writing about the moms in their lives, and creating beautiful handmade cards. And just maybe... writing poetry of their own.

What they're saying about Fortuigence

From happy students:

“I learned that I can indeed write, with a little help.”
~Carson F., AZ

"I do not enjoy writing; it doesn't come naturally to me, so when my mom told me that I was starting this new writing program called Essay Rock Star to prepare me for college, I cringed. I thought it would be like all the other ones I have used before, but with Essay Rock Star and Ms. Iatridis I have improved my writing ability and don't dread writing papers anymore. She does a great job of showing you the step-to-step process of writing a paper and how to improve your writing ability." 
 ~Ian S., OH 
From happy parents:
"All of my children are voracious readers, and I had hoped my son would pick up formal writing just as easily as his older sister. Unfortunately, before signing up for Essay Rock Star, he could barely write a paragraph, and had made it his mission in life to prove that it was possible to succeed without writing! He has just finished his first essay, and I am thrilled with his progress! Ms. I's interesting video lessons, clear directions, and gentle encouragement, have helped my son's confidence blossom. I have no doubt he will enter high school prepared to handle any writing assignment that comes his way! Thank you!"
  ~Jenica Webster, NC
“I liked the format of breaking writing assignments into steps and providing feedback for each part of the assignment. 
 ~Judith Sharkey, Goodyear, AZ
