Have students collect true tales about the "old days" by interviewing older relatives. Have students find out about the history of their families as far back as anyone can tell them.
Family stories are tales about people, places, and events related to families or their ancestors. Family stories casually talked about at the dinner table,or retold at family gatherings remind us of great epics or notable short stories. The memorable stories of our lives and of others in our family take on special importance because they are true, even if every persons perspectives of the these stories are different. These tales are family heirlooms held in the heart not the hand. They are a gift to each generation that preserves them by remembering them and passing them on. Go and start stories with your family today!!
Keep the Faith,

In Creating Family Traditions, Gloria Gaither and Shirley Dobson share their own ideas that will help make meaningful, long-lasting memories throughout the years to come. It’s packed with easy-to-do, fun-filled activities for holidays and special occasions through all the seasons of the year, and can be enjoyed by all, from toddlers to grandparents. This is the second book in the Let’s Make a Memory series.
This book shows how important and powerful family storytelling can be in a family. How it bonds families together and brings them closer. This tradition is all to lacking from our fast paced lifestyle. This book is a great reminder.

The I'm An Author program is a children's writing residency program that culminates in a bound book and has been created for use in the public/private school system, on a large scale. This is a great summertime activity for your kids and if you homeschool this online program would be a great writing program for next year.
We can help you,find,capture and publish your own book on any subject you choose, the sky is the limit. I just finished a family history book and my son is working on a book about his dogs. So anyone can publish their own book. I am so excited about this program for kids. I'm An Author will boost their confidence when they see their own story as a published book.
