Always More to Learn

March 12, 2013

Education is not quite as mysterious as it sometimes seems.  The truth is that education is a line upon line, precept upon precept project that never ends.  Homeschooling recognizes that all of life is learning, and we seek to create life-long learners.  Education is not confined to a classroom; it is life itself.  While that

Real Learning

March 2, 2013

When we added a puppy to our home, we purchased a set of training DVDs to help us ‘get things right. ‘I would love to say we are devouring those DVDs, but the truth is we snack at them.  Even the snacking is bearing fruit.  A recent clip from the trainer pierced my home schooling

Simple Tip

February 12, 2013

Sometimes the easiest things become the biggest stumbling blocks to a smooth school day.  “Where’s my pencil?”  “I need an eraser.”  “I can’t find any notebook paper.”  As homeschool families we LIVE in our homes far more than most.  The piles of busy-ness can easily become a cluttered mess.  Spending just a bit of time

Memorization & Learning Fun

February 10, 2013

Flash card drills.  Math fact tables.   Do they matter?  With so much to learn is it really necessary to drill the same things over and over again?  Well, opinions may vary but I would give a whole-hearted, YES!  Simply put, fact mastery makes all the higher level learning smoother.  While math is the obvious focal
