Carnival of Homeschooling

Autumn Leaves by John Everett Millais (1829–1896)Autumn is the theme of this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling, hosted by Janice Campbell.

At Amongst Lovely Things, Sarah offers a list of Favorite First Novels to Read-Aloud with Kids. She recommends Betty McDonald’s Mrs. Piggle Wiggle (one of my childhood favorites), Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach (I read it aloud to my baby brother), Beverly Cleary’s The Mouse and the Motorcycle and more.

My mother read us Black Beauty. My sister and I loved it. When she finished, we begged for her to read it all over again. Mom thought it was Victorian treacle, but she read it twice. Then she told us to learn to read so we could read it for ourselves. I did reread it years later. Mom had a point.

Freedom is the theme of this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling.  Homeschooled Mom writes:  “I don’t really see a point in having the legal right to homeschool, only to check with everyone and their mother before deciding on a curriculum, event, or even a political stance.  Homeschooling is an individual endeavor, and I believe that while input and opinions are nice, they are just that.  We have to remember that as parents, WE ARE IN CHARGE.”
