Melissa’s goal at Write On! Webb is to serve Parent Educators and their elementary and middle school children who long for support in the area of writing — but, not just learning to write well – actually enjoying the process, too!  Through live educational webinars, digital courses, multitudes of writing aids and resources, as well as interacting with a community of like-minded, family-loving, kid-centered moms, Melissa inspires and empowers all who travel down the wild and wonderful parenting path of home study.

Melissa Webb: entrepreneur, credentialed teacher, author, and parent. In all of these capacities, I work hard positively impacting the lives of children.

Do you feel it is our responsibility and privilege to empower and engage today’s young learners?

Me, too, which is why I created Write On! Webb.

Since the summer of 2017, through my online community and instructional video lessons, I have been igniting children’s curiosity,  knowledge, and passion for writing.

I’ve grown from classroom teacher > homeschool facilitator > homeschool mom > online instructor > home-based entrepreneur
  • Why my heart belongs to devoted homeschooling families
  • Wonderful (simple) ways to develop strong young writers at home
  • Workable strategies to apply to weekly writing lessons 
  • Why I use writing communities to support and encourage homeschooling families
  • Publication of my first children’s picture book – coming Summer 2019.

090: Enchanted Wanderers with Emmy & Taran

 

 

 

 

Two primary school teachers from Devon, Emmy and Taran, make up the Enchanted Wanderers. At their core, they just want to help children to grow; grow with self- confidence and self-belief in their own voice and ideas and to use this to empower their future learning.

Contrary to the serious tone of this statement, they to do this in a way that is fun and creative for all involved. With stories and storytelling as the root, the Enchanted Wanderers use art, circus, music and drama to produce a space that immerses children into new worlds. A space in which children can be themselves and express their ideas in ways that suit them best. A space that inspires children to create and combine, learn and grow.

Within the workshops, children learnt how to make their own pieces of magical art, conjured up circus tricks that led them through pivotal story moments and added musical accompaniment to deepen the mood and atmosphere of their stories. Throughout the day, the children got to experience new activities, solve problems, make friends, tell stories and be the leaders of their own learning. It all ended with the opportunity to share their stories, creations and/or circus skills in a child led show for the parents.

Following their first tour of workshops around Devon and Somerset, the Enchanted Wanderers had acquired a plethora of stories from children who had been inspired to write and they felt that more should be done with these stories to really show the children that what they create is valued and important.
Soon followed the next branch of Enchanted Wanderers who have created a platform for children’s stories to reach the world. Teachers, parents and children can all send stories and Emmy and Taran will re-tell them on their YouTube channel. As YouTube’s importance grows, stories need to remain relevant and accessible.

There is more to come from the Enchanted Wanderers with books, new workshops and a few extra little secrets sprouting some roots.

Schools in Australia are encouraged to contact Enchanted Wanderers throughout 2019 to book their workshop. Schools in England are encouraged to get in touch about availability in 2020. While schools all across the world should email about availability to have their children’s stories read online by these international storytellers.
