Homeschool Meme...I've been tagged
I read the Writing and Living blog and was tagged. Here is a fun meme for a homeschooling blog.
ONE HOMESCHOOL BOOK YOU HAVE ENJOYED:
Well, there are two actually. I can't choose just one. The first one is Well-Trained Mind. This book started me on the road to classical education. Then came my most favorite book about homeschooling: The Latin Centered Curriculum (Homeschooler's Guide to a Latin-Centered Classical Education).
ONE RESOURCE YOU WOULDN'T BE WITHOUT:
The internet. Honestly, I can't imagine trying to homeschool without the internet.
ONE RESOURCE YOU WISH YOU HAD NEVER BOUGHT:
That sure is hard to narrow down! I had to do some experimentation in the beginning days of homeschooling. I bought MANY things then that I wish I had never bought. I try to hold back now from too many unnecessary purchases. I consider our goals now before purchasing but every now and then I'll fall prey in a desperate moment. Such as the other day when I thought ABeCeDarian would be the answer to my problems. It wasn't and Sweet Pea 2 is trucking along with good ole Spell to Write and Read.
ONE RESOURCE YOU ENJOYED LAST YEAR:
Story of the World CDs...my boys listen to these almost every night when they go to bed. I can't BELIEVE the information that they have gleaned and RETAINED from listening to these.
ONE RESOURCE YOU'LL BE USING NEXT YEAR:
Latin Book One...this is an out of print Latin text. I'm excited about this because it brings translation into our studies. We are doing some now in Latina Christiana I and I had planned on going on into Latina Christiana II, but have decide to use Latin Book One over two years. I think it will bring some fun into our Latin studies.
ONE RESOURCE YOU'D LIKE TO BUY:
I can't think of any right now. The only thing that might interest me is a piano teacher who comes to my house. I'm not really in the market for a piano teacher, but if I had to choose, I think I would choose that.
ONE HOMESCHOOL CATALOG YOU ENJOY READING:
I really don't read homeschool catalogs anymore. I know our goals, I know where we are headed, so I don't really see a need to read many catalogs anymore. The one catalog which is more of a magazine that I LOVE is the one from Memoria Press. I drop everything the evening that "magazine" arrives, pour a cup of coffee, and snuggle in my bed to enjoy it.
ONE WEBSITE YOU USE REGULARLY:
Well-Trained Mind.com I don't follow WTM any more like I used to, but I still get some good information from other moms and dads in the areas I'm looking for.
