Playing with Words: Poetry Free Writing

Spread the love


Free writing is an exercise that works for all ages and skill levels.  You can play with words without worrying about mechanics.  Even pre-readers can free write if you’re willing to transcribe their words as they dictate!

Do you have a child who hates to write?  Playing with words can be a fabulous way to take the pressure off and just have fun with language.

Free writing is a delightful part of our family’s life, and one of our favorite ways to play with words is through writing poetry.  In this video, I give some tips and strategies for including poetry free writing in your family’s life, and share some IRL examples from our family!

Amy Sloan and her husband, John, are second-generation homeschoolers by grace alone to 5 children ages 4, 7, 8, 11, and 13. Their educational philosophy is one of humility and doxology, and follows primarily a classical approach. Amy loves coffee, perseveres through half-marathons and weight-training, and starts getting nervous if the stack of to-be-read library books beside her bed is less than 2 feet tall. Get her started on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Homer, or Hamilton the Musical and it might be hard to get her to stop. Mostly, though, she gets really excited about the Gospel. The Sloan family adventures in North Carolina.
