When educating at home, don’t move the traditional classroom into your living room.
Art History. Boring, right? No! It doesn’t have to be. Forget about all you didn’t learn in your art history course and take a look at some of these books. Your students will love them.
Going somewhere? If you are, you need to know where you are going. Knowing the name is not enough. Geography is, among other things, about the “where” of places and there are dozens and dozens of great geography books for your students that will both educate and entertain. Let’s go!
Let’s eat, Grandma! Commas do matter. Don’t ever forget it! There are lots of fun and entertaining books out there to help your students get a grasp on grammar.
Ready for some horrible histories? Or maybe you’d like to know exactly who you wouldn’t want to be from the past. Or perhaps you’d like to sit by the fire and read a fictional diary based on a historical time period. It’s all out there and your students will love it!
Your children can start reading great literature at a very young age. With the help of abridgments and adaptations your youngest students can jump in with The Odyssey, Hamlet and many others.
Science is fun. There are hundreds of entertaining and educational science books and DVDs out there. Your students will be building their own flux capacitors in no time!
How about some math? Maybe you already know Sir Cumference? He’s got some things to say about math. I wonder if he knows Penrose the mathematical cat? It’s possible! Just don’t forget, mathematicians are people too! That’s important.
It’s never too early to start educating your children. Whether we intend it or not our children are being educated from day one. Sights, sounds, smells, tastes and things to touch are all around them and their magnificent brains are processing it all.
