Lol, well I remember typing class. I so dreaded it, because my index finger has grown crooked from sucking on it well into my early teen hood. I was so afraid everyone would notice and that I wouldn't be able to type with it. Turns out I did just fine. smile. I LOVED that class. Don't remember about how many mistakes and such it took before you had to do over. And I can't remember actually being taught to do the carbon paper thing. I DID love the little 'flip chart' books we had to set off to the side and copy from. So cool. That's really the only class I do NOT have bad memories about. lol.

And we all lived happily ever after...

That's a wonderful idea! I wish I'd thought of that when my son was still homeschooling. What I ended up having them do is do as much as possible on the computer because it was easier to make corrections without rewriting the whole thing.

Does anyone but me remember "back in the day" when you had to use typewriters and if you made more than 3-4 errors on a page you had to completely retype it? And wasn't carbon paper fun?

This idea came to me the other night, right after I prayed for a great ending to the school year and for some fresh ideas to help.
If you have a child who writes a paragraph or story or whatever for you and DREADS having to go back to correct his mistakes...try this.
Have him write on a medium sized (holdable) markerboard for his first 'draft'. Then go back over it and show him where he needs to capitalize, correct punctuation and/or spelling. Then he can quickly, almost MAGICALLY, make a quick fix.
Then if you need it for his records, have him copy it neatly onto paper.
I thought that was a pretty good idea. Wish I would have thought of it along time ago!
Have fun!

And we all lived happily ever after...
