The first few chapters of this book have a very strong anti school tone, which turned me off Not every family can or wants to homeschool their children, and I don t think we need to make people feel bad for that choice I think there are lots of great ideas included, which is why it got three stars instead of two.

its contents After reading I m left with these two main thoughts as an editor, Linda Dobson has done a great job collecting and compiling many, many ideas, projects, and games from homeschooling parents across the Western hemisphere As a writer, I wasn t as impressed with what she had to say.To be upfront about this, however, I should say that after doing much research about different homeschooling methods and I purchased this book from.com after reading many good reviews about it and its contents After reading I m left with these two main thoughts as an editor, Linda Dobson has done a great job collecting and compiling many, many ideas, projects, and games from homeschooling parents across the Western hemisphere As a writer, I wasn t as impressed with what she had to say.To be upfront about this, however, I should say that after doing much research about different homeschooling methods and philosophies I am identifying myself with those using a classical curriculum, which by nature is structured and parent led Dobson is firm in her belief that children should be educated rather than schooled, and that the home education process should focus on the child s desires to learn and explore, rather than having parents determine what to study at any given time or any given order I don t know that she calls herself an unschooler but her own beliefs are far enough of a departure from that of a classical homeschooler to have me disagree with some of her statements.Differing philosophies aside, this book is a wealth of information of supplementary activities for parents homeschoolers or otherwise to do with their children ages 3 12 to help augment the learning process She has done a wonderful job organizing the information into chapters based on the subject being worked on i.e math, letter recognition, spelling, reading, science, history, physical activities Although the book is aimed toward a homeschooling audience I found that many of the activities listed could easily be incorporated into everyday family life, in a way that the kids aren t even aware that they re practicing academic skills.This isn t really a read cover to cover book, though I did do so when it first arrived just so I could become familiar with its contents Rather, it is simple to find the chapter for which you d like to find an activity, and put it to work I can see myself referring to this book for many years to come, whether I homsechool my kids for just one year or their entire pre college academic careers This islike a two and a half It is a compilation of ideas

school, keep their minds going, not too over whleming, kind of book for most families I got a lot of great ideas from this book one that we use every day now is writing a list of activities for the next day, each evening, which Loki can peruse, add things to, and cross off as we do each item I put lots of fun things on the list, as well as things we need to do.Of all the homeschooling activities books out there, I feel like this is the most comprehensive and or unschooling friendly I like that it is a compilation of ideas by families. I borrowed this book from my library, but I will have to purchase a copy So many terrific, creative ideas for teaching every subject to nearly any age child, from preschool to high school The author also does a great job of explaining why homeschooling, with it s thinking outside the box and follow the child methods tends to work better than institutionalized schooling. Skimmed reference Many suggestions and resources are outdated The book is 18 years old, so I do get that, but this really wouldn t help anyone now.
