…While Homeschooling is a fun and clever new Facebook page for homeschoolers with a sense of humor, and it serves up great doses of common sense. Recent posts have included these things best avoided:
• Forcing a reading program on a preschooler. Life’s too short, and your sanity is too valuable.
• MAKING them do a craft for every thing we study, then getting frustrated when they leave them all over the house.
• Forcing your child to sit at a desk while you’re teaching him about history. My son learned best while on the floor with the dog.
And a favorite:
• Mummifying a chicken. For weeks, you have a raw chicken on your counter, you go through pounds of salt, and at the end, there’s a dried up chicken! Is this really the best way for kids to learn about ancient Egypt?
