In The Study

     Well, it is that time of the year again. School time! This year of Home-school is going to be GREAT! It's our second year and today is the start of our first week. Lots of fun planned. Project time here we come! I Love being a Parent-Teacher!
     I have found that keeping the "schoolwork" playful and creative takes the "work" right out of schoolwork.
In fact I try to avoid using the word work all together. Learning should be FUN not work.
   There is no need to spend loads of money on a massive pile of supplies to achieve your goals. Lots of online resources are available that you can use to get free worksheets. The Library is another great place to go, they have all the books you'll need. Many libraries have groups and activities you can join. Our local library even has a Magic show from time to time.
    Take it outside! There is nothing like being in the field! I say the best way to learn is doing it yourself. Just because it's called home-school does not mean you have to be at home. That's right. Field trips! Get out of the house. Not only is this an easy way to keep learning fun it's a great way to get social!
     Everything can be a tool for learning. Your classroom is the World. What will you learn today?
