As a champion link hoarder, I'm finally closing tabs and windows because my computer is complaining….SOOOOoooooSLOooowwww. Here goes in finishing this out.
The last couple of days, I've run into some fantastic on-line resources. Besides the library and the great outdoors, the learning opportunities on the 'net are endless.
A Rhode Island homeschooler on the Home Education Magazine yahoo group:
iCivics prepares young Americans to become knowledgeable, engaged 21st century citizens by creating free and innovative educational materials.
In 2009, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor founded iCivics to reverse Americans’ declining civic knowledge and participation. Securing our democracy, she realized, requires teaching the next generation to understand and respect our system of governance. Today iCivics comprises not just our board and staff, but also a national leadership team of state supreme court justices, secretaries of state, and educational leaders and a network of committed volunteers. Together, we are committed to passing along our legacy of democracy to the next generation.
Did you know Sandra Day O'Connor was homeschooled for a year on her family ranch? She also wrote a book describing the glorious discovering she and her brother did on the ranch land. Looks like a good read from an outstanding leader.
Speaking of ranches, Pioneer Woman's website has FREE Online Educational Resources from Megan Sanders. There are some useful recommendations in comments too. A real treasure lode, that I actually discovered it after I observed Ree Drummond's Christmas Finger Jello technique. Little jewel bites. The Christmas season is grand, green and red.
