Its no secret that I’m totally in love with Facebook. One of my favorite things about it is seeing all the links my friends share. And I love blogs that do weekly link round-ups. But one type I don’t ever recall seeing is links devoted to homeschoolers–great posts, scientific or historical finds, planning resources, etc.
So why not?
How Stephen King Teaches Writing–“That fearlessness always comes when a kid is writing for himself, and almost never when doing directed writing for the grade (unless you get one of those rare fearless kids who’s totally confident). The best thing—maybe the only thing—is to tell the student that telling the truth is the most important thing, much more important than the grammar. I would say, “The truth is always eloquent.””
Supplemental Movie List for World History–This list is organized by time period and, from what I was told, screened for family-appropriate content. I was also told that it is no longer updated. Still, a great list for building that Netflix queue!
551 Feet Below the Sea: What It’s Like to Ride in a Deep-Sea Sub–My kids enjoyed the pictures and video.
32 Science Books Free for Kindle–Be sure to verify they are still free!
Most of Writing is About Relationship – What I Learned at a Brave Writer Seminar @ Our Busy Homeschool–We are starting Brave Writer soon, so this was an excellent and timely read.
