"The Truth About Homeschooling (and a recap of our first week)"
I wish Mary were always feeling this appreciative . . .
John gave his first twice-monthly presentation at CCE this week. Preparing for it was one of those opportunities that Nerd Homeschooling Mothers really enjoy
John presented on the Great Pyramid at Giza. I taught him how to go online to websites (a first), how to discriminate among sources (National Geographic = good, people wearing tin foil hats and talking about aliens = bad), how to write an outline (as required by his teacher) and translate that outline in fewer words to note cards (also required), how to create visual aids, and then he practiced his presentation (1-3 minutes) for me. John did very well and I'm so happy for him! And I had loads of fun teaching him.
