Homeschool Blog Carnival, 4/09/13

Victorian family of homeschoolers

Several times a week I list a bunch of great deals and freebies for Kindle (or your computer, you don’t need a Kindle) on my Facebook page. Like my FB page so you don’t miss the goodies! For instance, look at this:
Portraits of Integrity: Real People Who Demonstrated Godly Character (Volume 1)

Every Thursday I blog about homeschooling and family related issues with three other moms who also have large families. Lately we’ve been devoting our Thursday posts to Questions and Answers. Recently I answered this question:

How do you get your child evaluated when he or she finishes a school year, like in regular schools there are final exams and results which indicate the child’s learning achievement in that year. In home schooling, do the children’s work get evaluated by some school official or anyone to assess if the child has progressed and is ready to be promoted to the next grade. or is it the home schooling mom’s decision?

My answer is here (towards the bottom)

Why Homeschool writes about Family scripture study
Henry’s daugher writes about how they use some of the extra time Homeschooling gives them.

Over at Barbara Frank Online you can read about what to do When the last kid graduates from homeschooling, it’s time for Mom to pursue her interests, in her post Mom-Led Learning is Fun!

At Time4learning community blog   Consider the question, “Is the world your classroom?”

You might want to try some Low-Key Science, without lesson plans at Simply Convivial,where we see  the elements that make up our science curriculum and what it looks like to do science just as a part of life instead of a scheduled school checkbox.

You’ve hear of making mountains out of molehills.  Well Practical Pages describes how we took the mountain of work and made it manageable by reducing it to daily “mole hills” in Making Molehills

What hole do your children fit into? is the question being asked at  Homeschoolvspublicschool;  Public school is structured to force us into the size of hole that is popular in the system. Being an individual, able to make up their own minds is not the desired outcome of the current educational system!

All About the Attitude is the topic of the day at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama

Over at Teatime with Annie Kate, she has a lot of questions on teaching multiple grades and high school

Homeschooling families are usually single income families and we could always use more cash.  My oldest daughter (homeschooled grad, married, mama of two with her third on the way) makes some extra income selling things online.    She started doing this when she was 13.  She shares ideas and tips for finding what sells and being as efficient as possible with her Thrifty Tuesday posts She welcomes you to join her, too, and share your own ideas and wonderful thrift store finds.:

      By the way, I just realized that you had already mentioned Portraits of Integrity. Oh well, the more mentions, the better! They Boyers have written such good books.
