Répondez S’il Vous Plaît

InvitationThe term RSVP comes from the French expression “répondez s’il vous plaît”, meaning “please respond”. If RSVP is written on an invitation it means the invited guest must tell the host whether or not they plan to attend the party.

While participation in our creative writing project isn’t optional for our immediate family, after all it is part of our schooling this year, we think it might be fun to get more people in on the project!

It is exciting inviting other people to join us. The kids talked to my mother, I sent an email to my sister-in-law, and my husband has even suggested we ask our homeschooling friends if they would like to connect.Harry Potter Invite

The more people involved in this project, the more adventurous it will become. Our children will have a greater opportunity to write and delve into their imaginations.

We plan to send out RSVP’s to several of our friends and see how many we can get in on the game. It would be awesome to see this generation of kids get excited about writing!

InvitationsDo you think your kids would be more likely to write if their friends were involved? Do you think that inviting grandparents and other extended family would add to the fun?

  1. Being a writer, I love this idea. Introducing a new generation to the art of writing with invitations, hand written letters, and homemade cards is exciting. My mind is already a flutter with ideas, etiquette, and time periods you could introduce–both formal and informal. This could be something that makes not only writing, but other dreary subjects exciting. Good job! I may steal this idea.

    What grandparent wouldn’t want to be involved? Buttercup’s Nana would love to join her for a special Saturday afternoon tea. Of course, there are always those family members who are wet blankets no matter what you do.
