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. Finishing Strong #61 @EvaVarga.net

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.

She does an excellent job of describing the different types of volcanoes and provides classic instructions to model a volcanic eruption.Finishing Strong #61 @EvaVarga.net
