This week's Carnival of Homeschooling is up - The Let's Play School edition

Beverly is hosting this week's Carnival of Homeschooling at Homeschool Journeys.

She starts the carnival with:

When I was a little girl, I loved playing school. It was my favorite thing to do. Surely I drove my sister crazy and when she didn’t want to play, I would play what I called “alone school.” I had imaginary students that I would make worksheets for, I had good students and bad students. I would play for hours. My neighbor had a shoebox filled with a toy school set that I absolutely adored. It had desks and little rag dolls and a chalkboard and a teacher. I loved when she brought that coveted shoebox outside and let me play. I think my obsession with playing school is why homeschooling felt so natural to me. My imaginary students came to life. Now, to be clear, I’m not suggesting that homeschooling is playing school, but I look back on both with fond memories. And now that my kids are grown up and graduated, I continue to “play” by making worksheets for my grandkids and your kids.

Great Post! I believe homeschooling is probably the best method to guide children. It builds an intimate and meaningful relationship with your children. It also helps children mature through difficult times in life.
