Hey Homeschoolers! Here's a Place for You

Feel free to post questions, helps, freebies, chat about curriculum, how you socialize (now if you can or normally), how TGN subjects are used in your homeschool, or whatever else you wish. This category was suggested with you in mind.

    I don't homeschool. Well, maybe in a way I do - I help my niece.

    I am always looking for supplies, natural or made to use for projects and crafts.

    This week a friend called me and had items she had to get out of storage. After she brought some up, she mentioned colored paper and folders. I told her to bring them up. 10 boxes..., sigh. But the folders are colored so good for crafting and making cards. There are sticky tablets and a huge box of multicolored paper. I am saving some for me, giving some to my niece and there is a homeschooling center in a close by town that will get the rest.

    There were also two end tables that had glass in the top. I don't need the end tables but the paper its wrapped in, about 8 pieces deep and different colors will be crafting projects for the kids. Thye are big enough I plant to trace the kids and they will have their silhouette to do with what they want.

    Homeschooling is definitely a huge project to take on but if I had children I would.

    @Monek Marie Do you know what file folders are good for? Making lapbooks. I could see you enjoying making one of these with someone. There is a link on this page (the colored boxes) that should lead to lapbook ideas, suggestions & templates.

    One of our most fun ones we made (Canadian History) got a little chunky, but it was fun. Nobody actually has completed it, so I think it will be a continued work. I think it was e or 4 file folders for the one section, but had to be expanded into a second volume. I'm sure there will be more yet.

    I homeschool my kids. I usually use a purchased curriculum for the basics but I really like the world as my classroom approach. We only spend a couple of hours a day doing any type of book work. A lot of our learning is as hands on as I can make it.
