Resistant Learners, Are Grades Important & More: What’s Hot in Homeschooling this Week

Whats Hot in Homeschooling

This is the time of year I consider how I’m doing as a mom and homeschooler. The articles I have for you this week reflect that as well as my desire to get OUT OF THE HOUSE with the kids. If you can relate, you’ll love this issue.

I have made both of these choices and my fervent desire is to make the better choice every day. The difference in results is huge. Women Abiding gives us some excellent food for thought.

Are Grades Important?

The mom who cured her resistant learner mentions her son’s desire for grades. Whether you agree with Blue Manor Education’s position on grades or not, it’s important to think about where grades fit in your homeschool.

Sensory Balloon Bugs

These adorable balloon bugs from Teaching Mama are supposed to be for the little guys, but I would love to get my hands on these, too. They’re excellent for fidgety kids of all ages.

Screen-Free Family Activities

I am so ready for some screen-free time. It’s been a verrrry long winter. If you want some fresh ideas for what to do together apart from staring at a box, check out this article from The Holistic Homeschooler.
