Carnival of Homeschooling

Carnival of Homeschooling

I really love reading tips and personal stories from other homeschooling families.  Recently, I learned about blog carnivals.  The Carnival of Homeschooling for week 212 was published today.

One of my posts was included in this week’s carnival.  I encourage you to take a look and see what other home school families are doing!

  1. Oh, what a neat site! Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve taught a homeschooler for four years now (he’s mostly unschooled, but I come to his house once a week to teach him Algebra, French, and a little bit of English). He’s in high school now and he’s really made me a believer in homeschooling. He’s incredibly mature for his age. He has intelligent things to say about what’s going on in the news, and he spends some of his free time writing a book (!) The best part is, he’s a normal high schooler– he likes to eat pizza and hang out with friends playing video games. It’s just that with homeschooling, he’s really been able to bloom. There’s noone around telling him that it’s not “cool” to be smart, to be interested in what’s happening in the world. He’s gifted in math, and so I’m able to move along at his (quick) pace– he doesn’t have to wait for other students to catch on. Homeschooling really makes good use of his time. Even though he didn’t know any French at all when we first started working together, he can now read children’s books in French! And we only meet once a week! I credit homeschooling for helping this gifted young man meet his potential.
