Honey Bee Writing Challenge | Homeschool 2018

The month of August is Honey Bee month at Emmett’s Expeditions. This month is the perfect opportunity to teach our kids about honey bees and how important they are in our lives. Emmett and I will be going to an observation hive this week for our first field trip of the school year. Also, we are doing a honey bee writing challenge. You’re welcome to join us.

Honey Bee Writing Challenge


In honor of National Honey Bee Day, I am hosting a Honey Bee Writing Challenge for homeschoolers. First, have your students write a short story or poem about honey bees. Then, email their writing assignments to me by the evening of August 18th. Each homeschooler will have a chance to be featured on the Emmett’s Expedition blog next week. This challenge is open to students of all grade levels. They can write fiction or non-fiction. The specifics of their writing assignment is up to you 🙂 Homeschooling is awesome like that.


Honey Bee Writing Ideas


There are many different things to write about when it comes to honey bees. Your kids can write about they honey bee life cycle, the queen bee, worker bees, the waggle dance, colony collapse disorder, or how honey is made. There are many more topics I’m sure your awesome homeschoolers can come up with.

  • Don’t forget to grab your free Homeschool Yearbook Checklist after #HomeschoolChat!
  • Welcome to Homeschool Chat! Tonight we are talking about homeschool yearbooks. Give your answers below in the comments. I’ll share mine as we go in the Twitter Chat. .
Starter Question: Does your homeschool have a name?
.
Q1: Why do you want a homeschool yearbook?
.
Q2: Do you prefer printed yearbooks or digital yearbooks?
.
Q3: Will you use traditional headshots or fun unique poses for your homeschool portraits?
.
Q4: Are you going to make a family yearbook or a group yearbook with your homeschool co-op?
.
Q5: What will your child choose to put in their Career Capsule?
.
‪Career Capsule pages are so much fun! We turn it into a whole mini photo session. Have your child dress up as what they want to be when they grow up. Then, we they look back at their yearbook, they see what they wanted to be when they were younger! ❤️ It’s like a photographed time capsule in a book. ‬

‪Thanks for joining us for #HomeschoolChat. I’ll be around for a bit to answer any questions you might have about homeschool yearbooks. If you can’t stick around, I hope to see you next week 🙂‬
