The theme for this Carnival revolves around quotes from the popular movie The Princess Bride, one of the most quoted movies of all time and a particular favorite of homeschooling families. Familiar lines such as “When I was your age, television was called books.” “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” and “As you wish.” are incorporated into the Carnival as the storyline is explained for those (few) who may be unfamiliar with it. It’s a brilliant composition, and a delightful foray into the movie’s favorite scenes. A fitting fifth anniversary edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling!
Check out this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling: The Tryptophan Edition at Apollos Academy:
“There are wonderful holiday-themed lesson plans, imaginative plans for common subjects, and just some wonderful families enjoying life and their homeschooling journeys by kicking up their heels and taking advantage of this sometimes chaotic time of year to try something new and different.”
This week’s Carnival of Homeschooling, at The Homespun Life blog, features some great articles, covering a variety of subjects, including lifestyle, faith, and classical music, and beginning with the founder of the Homeschool Carnival, Henry Cate from ‘Why Homeschool’.
The Carnival of Homeschooling #239 is hosted this week at The Common Room blog:
“Although a theme is not necessary to host the homeschooling carnival (I have hosted with no theme before), it can be fun. This week’s theme is a bit ambitious. It is… the history of homeschooling in America. Please understand this history is somewhat subjective and is in no way intended to be comprehensive.”
It may not be comprehensive, and there are some sections we would quibble with, but all in all it’s an interesting and often entertaining jaunt through parts of homeschooling’s history.
The ever-wonderful Carnival of Homeschooling is sponsored this week by Janice Campbell, who writes: “To celebrate the season, let’s imagine that we’re at a lovely beach with waves breaking, a gentle breeze blowing, and palm trees rustling. Now…. relax and read while your dear children build sand castles!”
The Carnival of Homeschooling is a weekly blog carnival which showcases posts about homeschooling from both seasoned and new bloggers. Various bloggers take turns hosting the carnival, and on this anniversary edition co-founder Henry Cate ponders:
Where has all the time gone? Three years ago my wife and I launched the first Carnival of Homeschooling. The carnival keeps going strong. Every week we pick up new bloggers. There is a vast number of people who participate. We are also blessed to have several dozen people who take turns hosting the carnival.
Check out the Carnival of Homeschooling as it explores the incredibly broad range of topics homeschoolers are blogging about this week!
