Why should follow your local museums on social media? Following your local museums on social media opens doors to the most amazing finds. Recently the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, NC posted via Facebook about interest for a focus group study. This was super exciting because it would be a great opportunity for us to have a voice for the homeschool community.
But spelling can only be done in workbooks..Right? Have you heard of Electric Company? I wanted to add more spice to our spelling practice. Scrolling through Roku channels, I came across Electric Company on PBS Kids. Twenty minutes of spelling with catchy songs and hot beats! Score! Yes before “Hamilton” Lin Manuel Miranda taught kids letter sounds on the show.
Is the price tag worth it? We recently visited the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC. We have a NC family zoo membership which allows us, a family of four to pay half price for tickets.
There are so many awesome educational sites for the homeschooling family or for kids who just need extra help but where do you start? I’m always searching for new ideas to add to our school day. Here are a few of my favorite sites that my kids can work on themselves. We have only been homeschooling for 1 ½ years but our eclectic style works for us. Eclectic means to piece- it- together. I like taking ideas and making it fit into our unique style of learning.
