Creative Homeschool Curriculum: Creative ELA
Do you value creativity in your homeschool? Are you looking for a creative homeschool curriculum? If you answered yes to one or both of these questions, then this post is for you! But I hear you saying that this seems like something really hard to create. Be sure to read to the end for a special gift.
As I’ve said many times before, outsourcing is such a great way for us working homeschool moms to save time and stress. It’s one of the many ways that you can make your life easier! So no, you don’t need to create a creative homeschool curriculum yourself.
There’s no need to be an expert in any subject you don’t feel comfortable with. It’s perfectly ok to get help from someone else. Because the time and stress saved is going to be better for everyone in your family.
Not an ELA Expert? No Problem!
Creative ELA is an awesome creative homeschool curriculum to engage your kids in reading and writing activities. It was created by my dear friend Kelly Sage, who is an experienced ELA teacher and one of the kindest people I know. And trust me when I tell you that this is the teacher you want to have to help your kids love reading and writing. So what is Creative ELA all about?
- It’s a place for middle school aged kids to find interesting, diverse and engaging books and poems to read and write about.
- There are comprehensive, month-long unit studies for each text.
- There are live classes twice a month to get kids excited about the unit and then to finish off by sharing what they’ve done.
- There are 3 mini recorded lessons included in your month.
- There are pop-up workshops for kids and parents.
- There are loads and loads of free resources that you can use with your children in your homeschool.
Why We Love Creative ELA
There are so many great features about this creative homeschool curriculum. As someone who has reviewed many ELA programmes, I have to say that Creative ELA really stands out.
- I love how inclusive and interesting the texts are. They cover relevant and challenging topics that are so important for our kids to think about. This is very important for me as the parent of neurodivergent kids.
- Kelly’s teaching style is so welcoming and encouraging. She will never force anyone to do anything they don’t want to. If kids don’t want to be on camera, no problem! If your kiddos prefer to have a scribe than write themselves, that’s also ok. For Kelly it’s important that kids feel welcome and supported. Once again, this means so much to me as my kids can easily be reluctant learners!
- The variety of activities and tasks are so cool. Kids might explore the cooking of a particular country, do a webquest about something and then do an art project. It’s a great way to keep kids engaged!
- There is so much support for us as parents. The units are so detailed and comprehensive, that you always know what to do. I love this because I’m a lazy homeschooler! 😉
- Kids can work at their own pace, which is vital for my children. They can also pick and choose what they want to do. And with so much variation, there really is something for everyone!
- Kiddos get all the support they need to be more confident writers. I know writing is a tough skill for many children to master. My kids find it really, really difficult. But Kelly is so encouraging and supporting on her live classes and with her units.
- Kelly has a lot of experience teaching neurodivergent children. It can be hard to find resources that are so inclusive of neurodiversity so I really appreciate her approach.
Creative Homeschool Curriculum + Free Community
What I love about Kelly is how generous she is. You can join the Creative ELA community for free. And there is so much value in the community. You know how I always talk about finding community as working homeschool moms. Creative ELA is such a positive and welcoming place to hang out. And yes, it’s off social media.
You can join to…
- meet other homeschooling families,
- help your kids meet other children in a safe environment,
- get access to loads of Kelly’s really awesome free resources,
