Homeschool Meme

While some of you have been posting some deep and meaningful posts, here's a light, make that super light one from me:)

My dear bloggy friend Jo in Queensland tagged me, oh, let's see, more than a month ago with this meme! Sorry Jo, it's a bit late, better late than never though eh!

The idea of this meme is to answer the questions and then to tag some bloggers to pass it on, so they can do the same. However, some of my blog friends are not homeschoolers and so this wouldn't apply to them; the rest who are my homeschool bloggy friends have already had their turn most likely so I'll just fill in the details with my answers and leave it untagged at the end:)

Here goes:

1. One homeschooling book you have enjoyed:

'A Charlotte Mason Companion' by Karen Andreola.

2. One resource you wouldn’t be without:

The internet!

3. One resource you wish you had never bought:

hmmm, I'd have to say "Before Five in a row". I briefly tried this with Rebekah when she was 3 to 4 and she didn't like having the same book read every day! Sorry all you 'rowers' out there but this just wasn't going to work for us!

4. One resource you enjoyed last year:

Living Books curriculum teachers manual for year 1.

5. One resource you will be using next year

Our ipad, yay!

6. One resource you would like to buy:

I think I'm ok for now.

7. One resource you wish existed:

A time extender, need more hours in my day:)

8. One homeschool catalogue you enjoy reading

Don't read catalogues, does that make me a 'weird' weird homeschooler? (wink) :)

9. One homeschooling website you use regularly

Ambleside online

10. Tag other homeschoolers:

See my note at the top:)

Well gosh, I was gonna ask why you didn't tag me and then I remembered: I'm not a homeschooler. Oh! ;)

Interesting post, though--gives me a little peek into your methods. You've done a great job, and if you'd let me I'd send my kids to you to homeschool, but then it'd be "friendschooling", I guess. :)

What did we ever do before computers and the Internet !! Thanks for sharing.

Sarah said...

Cool! Have you started your summer holidays yet?

Jo, yes what did we ever do before the internet, can't imagine life without it now can we!

Amy, thanks:)

Sarah, we're finishing off this week and taking a break of a few weeks and then back into it mid jan as we don't follow the school terms. We'll be finished AO1 around March 2012.

Yay! Loved reading your meme. And don't feel bad that it took you a month. I think it took me more than a month to do mine when I was tagged. Ha ha. xo

Sarah said...

We're doing the same actually. Breaking only for a few weeks and then finish off a some work from AO1 and AO3. Have a great rest! xxx
