Totally agree.

"You learn about math when you’re playing different board games. You learn about space when you put together train tracks and play with Legos. You learn importa...nt skills, like how to get along with other people when you play with other people. They’re learning way more important skills when they’re not doing their homework."

"No research has ever found a benefit to assigning homework (of any kind or in any amount) in elementary school. In fact, there isn’t even a positive correlation between, on the one hand, having younger children do some homework (vs. none), or more (vs. less), and, on the other hand, any measure of achievement. If we’re making 12-year-olds, much less five-year-olds, do homework, it’s either because we’re misinformed about what the evidence says or because we think kids ought to have to do homework despite what the evidence says."

A powerful combination of superstition and questionable research ensures young kids hit the books instead of just, you know, reading them.

Thought this may be something interesting to pass along.

Do your kiddos have Spring Break coming up soon? If you’re looking for something fun to do, consider a LEGOLAND vacation.

We shared this last May. It had so many views I thought it might be good to repost it for the newest among us a chance to read. Very interesting.

This is the first ever study done on just homeschooled children. A different look at the debate.

The first-of-its-kind study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated American homeschooled children shows who is really ailing…and parents should be worried

This is so true. With positive reinforcement anything is possible. Both of my daughters taught themselves to play piano ukelele and guitar

For the Jr. Scientists

"This year's Young Scientist Challenge will award access to 3M scientists who will serve as mentors to help students pursue their innovative ideas. These 'young... scientists' (from grades 5-8) will also be eligible to receive a considerable amount of money; the grand prize is $25,000. Finalists chosen through a video competition will travel to St. Paul, MN, where they'll receive a tour of 3M headquarters and meet with a distinguished panel of judges."

Do you know a young scientist?

Recently a Manatee county Homeschool mom had a visit from the police or child welfare not sure which. He said he was responding to an anonymous tip that there children were not attending school. She said they were homeschooled and were registered with the county and their evaluations were up to date. He asked if he could see the children. Not sure if she let them in or brought the children for him to see. It appears that she was not familiar with the law. But doing this can cause a multitude of problems. As homeschoolers if this ever happens to you, you should never let them in your home or present your children to them unless they have a warrant. If you are unsure of the law or the best way to handle it look up the law or join Homeschool Legal Defense or another organization that can stand up for you in these circumstances.

FYI: anyone in the area.
