Carnival of Homeschooling

A study for the Lincoln Memorial sculpture by Leonard Wells Volk

Homeschool Buzz is hosting the Lincoln’s wisdom edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling.

My favorite quotes:

“I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.”

“I walk slowly, but I never walk backward.”

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”

Kathy reviews Harold Holzer’s Father Abraham: Lincoln and His Sons.

I’m a big fan of Abraham Lincoln’s World, a “horizontal history” by Genevieve Foster.

Homeschool Buzz has created artistic word clouds for this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling.

“This is going to be fun” is a “coercive statement,” argues Brave Writer. Maybe, in hindsight, learning about dependent clauses will turn out to have been fun. Maybe not. “No one wants to be required to enjoy a subject area.”

Since today is the Festival of All Saints, the Carnival of Homeschooling has a “saintly” theme.

Host Homeschool Buzz writes about a very tough year trying to teach a not-so-saintly fourth grader with a previously undiagnosed learning disability. Kathy Kuhl’s Homeschooling Your Struggling Learner was a big help.
