As before, in addition to the post that received the most visits, each of the participating bloggers (listed above) will be selecting our personal favorites, so be sure to stop by each blog to see if your post was selected.
Our featured post this week, Ten Free Sites I Use in My Homeschool Daily, comes from Tara who blogs at This Sweet Life. With a child passionate about classical music, how did I not know about Classics for Kids? Thank you, Tara, for sharing this site (and nine others) with us. We can’t wait to explore it in more depth.
My Personal Favorites
I love Beth’s post, Five Reasons Why You Should Require Your Child to Self-Edit at Classes by Beth. My kids have been doing significantly more writing this past year and encouraging them to self-edit has not only saved me time – but has improved their writing as well as their attitude towards writing. Her reasons are as valid in English composition as they are in foreign language.
I have a hard time getting my little man to read much of anything other than mod codes for Minecraft or sheet music. I am confidant that we’ll find titles of interest in Heather’s list of Top 10 + Sci-Fi & Futuristic Books for Teens, at Joyful Socks Mom.
Lastly, I’d like to highlight a post from Starts at Eight, Hands-On Geography: Volcanoes. Heidi’s post is very timely for us and was a great refresher on the geology of volcanoes as we’ve recently returned from a visit to Pompeii and the island of Santorini- both of which are volcanic. She does an excellent job of describing the different types of volcanoes and provides classic instructions to model a volcanic eruption.
