Today, since there is apparently nothing original or earth-shattering on my own mind, I thought I’d share with you some of the gems I’ve found around the Internet lately.
- Homeschool Mom: You Are Amazing! from Hip Homeschool Moms – This is a must-read if you need a little encouragement today. It made me a little teary-eyed.
- 15 Musical Instrument Crafts for Kids from Red Ted Art – I wish I had discovered this one a week earlier! It would have gone perfectly with last week’s assignment in our history curriculum, Ancient Civilizations and the Bible, since one of the project ideas was to make a simple musical instrument.
- What’s in a Portfolio from Heart of the Matter Online – Even if your state doesn’t require you to compile a portfolio, doing so can make a great keepsake of your child’s school year and HOTM has some great tips for building one.
- How to Use Current Events in Your Homeschool from Blog, She Wrote – The kids and I have been loving CNN Student News, so I appreciated all the tips for how and why to use current events and the additional resources Heather offers.
- The Art of Fall: Mixed Media Workshop for Kids from Flourish – This is an online art class for kids, but I fully intend to participate with Megan. It starts next Monday and we are so excited!
What’s been popular on Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers lately:
- How to Make an Edible Cell Model – It’s that time of year for those studying biology. If you’ve got to make a cell model, you might as well make it tasty.
- How to Make a Salt Dough Map – It must be social studies fair time, too, because this is the time of year everyone’s always looking for how to make 3D maps. I’ve got you covered!
- 10 Tips for Starting to Homeschool – The time is quickly passing for this one, but it’s been popular for the last couple of months.
- 10 Clues You Might be a Homeschool Kid – You know, in case your kid isn’t sure.
- 10 Clues You Might be a Homeschool Parent – I hope, if you are, you already know, but just for fun…
