In my series of Unschool Solutions, each theme will contain 5 lessons. These lessons are meant to be strewn in your homeschool area for children to use independently or with guidance. However, they can be used in any way that works with your family. Each unit contains the 5 lessons that ask children to think about a question, look at a visual, read a small passage, and then try it for themselves. A materials list and resource list are also provided. I always use minimal, inexpensive materials and resources I can find at my local library. With these basic introductions children will be able to find something they like and dive deeper if they choose.
In this unit children will learn about the magic of writing. Similes, metaphors, alliteration, onomatopoeia, idioms, and personification are all covered. We are using it along with our JK Rowling study so magic is referred to many times.
