On October 27th, the students in the third through sixth grade classes at Fallbrook Homeschool Academy had the opportunity to share their writing talents with friends and family at the Showing Writing Fashion Show.
After selecting their favorite outfit, costume, or sports gear, the students went through an intensive writing process, creating commentaries to be read while they modeled their outfits on
stage. While the requirements for the assignment varied according to grade level, the students used figurative language, concrete nouns, active verbs, and sensory description to describe their outfits and actions in detail.
The partnership between the students and their homeschool and classroom teachers resulted in the children feeling proud of their accomplishments.
“The Fashion Show is just the project based type of assignment that makes learning engaging, challenging, and meaningful,” said Danni Fieri, a teacher at the homeschool. “This activity motivated students to produce their very best work and provided a shared experience the students and their families will treasure.”
With the technology and curriculum the Fallbrook Elementary School District has provided, expert instruction and curriculum guidance from experienced classroom teachers, and the dedication and hard work of the teaching parents, the homeschool environment gives students access to a rigorous, standards-based education tailored to their unique needs.
