I like this post so much that I wanted to share it on my blog. Megan Levinson is the author. The secular curriculum section is near and dear to my heart. It takes so much of my life and time to write secular science curriculum. I do it because I could not find anything to use with my son. I might be a bit of an overachiever ;-) I am very excited about N.A.S.H. the National Alliance of Secular Homeschoolers group that is forming. They have asked me to be on their board in the capacity of the Secular Alliance Manager. My goal for this position is to make NASH a place where people who want to use secular curriculum for educating their child can come to read descriptions and reviews to learn more about secular curriculum and programs. N.A.S.H is a group that also advocates the development of high quality secular curriculum and programs for use in the homeschool community. We want to promote those companies and individuals who are doing this. I am excited to be a part of it as it gets started. I will be speaking at N.A.S.H.’s Inaugural conference on the 5th and 6th of August. I will be talking about  learning science and the elements needed for creating a good science co-op on the 5th and Handcrafting an Education on the 6th. I hope to meet some of there!

Since it’s getting close to the beginning of the school year, most homeschool activity coordinators are getting people to sign up for their activities.

I know that it is a natural thing to start these sign-ups at the beginning of the year, but part of me wishes that these sign ups could be put off until September. 632 more words


Project-based Homeschooling: A Mushroom Project Teaches Mama When to Let Go

Call Me Blessed

The Proverbs 31 woman seriously annoys me. She rests now, for all eternity, in the pages of holy scripture, the paragon of virtue. I feel tired and irritable just reading about her. 874 more words

Challenging Kids... Schoolwork Contracts

My oldest has a very strong personality. She is quite bright, and because of this in her early years of schooling became accustomed to not having to work very hard in school. 722 more words
