I discovered a couple of really neat homeschool resources. If you have a reluctant writer, visit Brave Writer for lots of easy ideas to incorporate into your homeschool routine. If you have a beginner in reading, visit SillyBooks.net, an animated world of free reading, writing and learning fun for kids.
Right now we are keeping our homeschooling simple since we are preparing to move. We focus on the basics: Reading, Writing, and Math - but we are learning all the time.
We have an ongoing crystal experiment that we have been watching for well over a month now. We have board/computer games, lots of outdoor play in the afternoons, art supplies, a zillion books, puppets, dolls, and musical instruments.
We visit the library to get even more books! The kids are currently reading The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Black Beauty, and Peter Pan ( I read this aloud to Kenzie & anyone else who cares to listen). We watch the birds that visit our birdfeeder. We listen to classical music while doing our table time. I change my computer background to showcase a piece of art each week & we discuss it.
We pursue our interests....
~ learning to play guitar
~ science experiments
...and much more!
We have time to build relationships with those we love most. We work and play together. We talk and laugh together. We're building memories. Homeschooling for us is not "school" at home. It's a lifestyle of natural learning.
