This is what homeschooling my children is all about. Elwyn has come a long way in 9 years, now in high school. Here she shows off at 6-years-old presenting a simple report (lapbook on Amelia Earhart) Check out our lapbooking introduction video and other videos on onDiscoveringEducation.us
Learning is so very important to me. I have begun sharing my knowledge online through OutSchool. My own children take classes through OutSchool as well.
You can see my upcoming class schedule in the link on my menu above.
Welcome to the Grand Canyon State, Arizona! Let's visit the history and the facts around Arizona, the 48th state of the United States.
In this class, we will be creating and completing a lapbook that is all about Arizona to include a variety of state facts like the state bird and motto. We will also learn about some of the fun, interesting and even WEIRD parts of Arizona like the ghost towns of Jerome and the dinosaurs of Holbrook. Did you know that the Flinstones live in Arizona?
A lapbook is simply a file folder that contains a variety of "mini books," foldables, and other material that cover detailed information about the lapbook's central topic.
A multi-page handout will be available to the students before class to print and use. Students will need a manilla folder, scissors, glue stick, the printed handout, construction paper and colored pencils or markers.
We celebrate every day as a new day at our home. Once every other week, we (someone with mom) in the house takes a trip down to Phoenix (2-1/2 hours each way) to visit with Trystan on his long journey or recovery. The big guy went down with me and we had a heart to heart with Trystan about how he is doing and expected behaviors.
After our visit, Larry and I headed to “Dave and Busters”. We had never been there before. The food was pretty good “Pub Style” food and we played some games and without kids. I had to take a photo of the Star Wars game to show Berlyn what he will be able to go on the next time that he goes with me. After, we walked around the little outdoor mall and visited a bookstore. I had forgotten how they smell. I love the smell of books.
Remember to take time out for yourself, even when you don’t think that you needed it. It can do wonders for yourself and for your relationships. 🙂
NOt only am I offering classes for kids through Outschool, but, I have also opened up an Etsy shop for my digital art. Every file in store will not only be cut, but will also be tested and created into something.
