Gifted Education and a Free Foreign Language Resource

Gifted Education and a Free Foreign Language Resource
I received a sweet note from a client, and she gave a wonderful review of a free homeschool resource for foreign language.  I thought it might encourage others, so I'm passing it along. Hi Lee,Thank you so much for focusing on high school, homeschool students! Your web site has been very valuable to me.  I am homeschooling a son who is profoundly gifted.  We are "refugees homeschoolers" - We always believed our son would be schooled...

Free Bible Curriculum!

Free Bible Curriculum!
Homeschooling is an investment in your children, but it doesn't mean it has to be a huge investment of money.  When you want to have a course called "Bible" all you really need is a Bible.  Count the hours you require of your high school students, and when you have 75-90 hours, call it a half credit class.  If you count 120-180 hours, call it a one credit class. If you would like some supplements to...

Do you just keep record of time read or what do you do with the Bible to count Bible as a credit?

Turn Passion Into Homeschool High School Credit

Turn Passion Into Homeschool High School Credit
Let me demonstrate how to think through the process using the interest of the child and incorporating that into delight-directed learning.A homeschool boy loves the show "Warriors" on The History Channel and just can't get enough.  He read the hosts biography and has a desire to imitate his hero.  His mother wrote to me, looking for ways to translate this interest into "school."  Here are the suggestions I gave her.Dear [Gold Care Club Mom,]I don't think...

Commit Your Plans to the Lord!

Commit Your Plans to the Lord!
"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."Proverbs 16:3That's quite a promise there!  I love how the Bible says your PLANS will succeed.  He doesn't promise your CURRICULUM will succeed.  Chances are there will be some curriculum choices along the way that won't work.  The good news is that your plans will succeed when you commit what you do to the Lord.  "Here God, this is for you.  You carry the burden."Commit...

You want to cover current events, but you don't have the money for yet another curriculum purchase.  Have you considered talk radio?When my kids were in Junior High, we started to listen to talk radio when we were having lunch, and discussing the events they brought up.  It may depend on your local radio station, of course.  When I was considering the radio host, I was much more concerned with them being POLITE rather than having...
