Each Other – Reading ‘Riting and ‘Rythmatic

As stated in my previous post, I love to read. However I am very interested in this badge because it is more than just reading and will stretch me out of my comfort zone.

 

Beginner – Reading:

-Pick out three in three categories: fiction, non-fiction, and poetry & read them

Fiction – Ramona Blue

Non-Fiction – Tough Cookies  In Cold Blood

Poetry – The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One

 

Intermediate – Writing

-Write one short story of fiction, one persuasive essay, and one poem. Read them aloud to your friends or family, or share them on the Farmgirl Connection chatroom.

-Refresh (or learn for the first time) the rules of grammar: try reading Woe is I: The Grammarphobe’s Guide to Better English in Plain English by Patricia T. O’Conner, or Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynne Truss.

Expert – Arithmetic

-Refresh your math facts by helping a child with homework or playing math games on the computer. Up the ante by adding in algebra.

-Some fun books to try that are anything-but-dull-textbooks are the Life of Fred books by Stan Schmidt
