I sat here tonight looking over our lesson plans for Monday and started thinking, “Jeeze, we cover a LOT of stuff. Even in just the first week back to school, we are busy, busy, busy!” Then I look at the curriculum I created and I’m so thankful we are not tied to too many textbooks. Which in turn got me to thinking about how much work we do, and how many ways we learn that are NOT attached to the traditional way of learning. If you are just starting out homeschooling, or if you are a veteran looking to break away from the chains of textbooks, I give you Generation Homeschools Amazing Alternatives to Textbook Learning!
By now, I'm sure you've come to appreciate advice from others. At one point in time, you've been online looking up information. Perhaps you are looking for a recipe, or tips on budgeting. If you are like me, you've researched how to do some of the more difficult things, such as changing the brakes on your vehicle or even how to identify learning problems your child may have. Why are these things seemingly left out of learning?
As fun as that sounds, I'm not really going to chase my shadow. Why, because we are going to be chasing that rascal, Punxsutawney Phil!
Good Tuesday to you!
In just a few short hours, ol’ Punxy will be letting us know if we can expect 6 more weeks of winter weather, or if Mother Nature will grace us with an early appearance. I don’t think I am alone when I say, “I am very ready for springtime!” The winter chill has definitely added to our homebody experience and I am itching to pitch the tent, grill some food and enjoy those long, lazy days!
However, it may be a little while longer before we get to see the blooms on the trees or even dig out the mower to cut down those pesky wild onions that seem to grow in abundance during March and April.
According to these FAQ’s, there are some pretty interesting things about Punxsutawney Phil that you might not have known!
There are also some very cute online games for your little ones. Disclaimer: I have not viewed all the games, please preview before letting your children online.
