Links for Learning

Whether you're a homeschooling parent or not, here are some link you might find interesting, helpful, neat, and possibly even fun! No guarantees about what your kids will think though. Jace and I just got back from the library and every book I picked out he said, "nah" to. Obviously I know nothing...in the eyes of a 7 year old boy. Let's hope you like my picks a bit more!

The Homeschool Classroom...This is a great all around resource. If you scroll down a bit, on the right side there are category buttons to push if you're looking for insight in some area. I think it's a great starting point for the answers to a lot of my questions, and sometimes the only place I need to go! Great writers!

Award Winning Books...Jace is a voracious reader. I mentioned that we just went to the library. That's because on Wednesday he got 15 books and read them all, yes...all of them, by Thursday night. Since then he's been reading Gracie's, Tyler's, and ones that we own - but he's read them all many times before. So we went again today. This site has lists for all sorts of awards, some I've heard of and some I haven't, but all books I'm trying to interest Jace in! Maybe your kids will enjoy them more...or maybe you will!

Happy Birthday Author...On the subject of reading, this site highlights authors around the time of their birthdays! Cool concept, I think.

Story Online...Here your child can have a book read to them by someone famous! We haven't tried this yet, but it's in our plans and I think Gracie's really going to enjoy it!

Teachable Moments...Ideas for how to talk to kids, and maybe even teach them a lesson, about things going on in our world. Again, we haven't used this yet but I will. If you utilize it before me, I'd love to hear how!

American Sign Language University...A friend just brought this to my attention. Free lessons from the ASLU...very awesome! The kids and I just went over the alphabet the other day. Hopefully now they can learn a little more.

So, that's what I have for now. Hopefully you'll enjoy looking through the pages and find something useful. Enjoy your weekends! We're off to the fair tomorrow!
