My REVIEW of Kathy Stemke's PB,  "Trouble on Earth Day," can be found here: http://hookkidsonreading.blogspot.com/


This charming "green" story teaches kids about recycling and reusing - and it's a FUN read too. The great info and games at the back are icing on this yummy cake.

I'm a mom of three, two are strong willed and one is autistic. If that's not enough to make a mama busy, I also coordinate MOPS, write, and blog to encourage moms. Follow me on facebook Heather Shaw Riggleman or find my blog Saved By Love. Today's post is about friendship in the trenches of motherhood!

I have a giveaway for a BocaBeth DVD and Activity Book this week on my blog!  BocaBeth can be a great Spanish curriculum for young children or a supplement for any other Spanish instruction you're doing!  Check it out at  http://jollyjansen.blogspot.com/2011/09/teach-spanish-with-bocabeth...

Welcome to Carla and her preschooler.

Esther, I also loved Dolphin Tale.  Home schooling your children can be a wonderful experience dor both parent and child.  Congratulations.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

If any of you think your children would enjoy a simple, short time-travel adventure e-book,  in easy to open and read PDF, I have just the thing FREE.

I put characters from my 3 latest books into a fun adventure. Two of them must help Taconi and Claude find their way back to the Aussie outback of the 1950s - where they come from.

Just e-mail me < mfinke@frontier.com >
and this FREE fun story is yours to enjoy.

A Hollywood movie that is pro-homeschooling?  We got to go to the movie screening for Dolphin Tale.  This is a great family movie.  The main character was homeschooled,  (It's based on a true story.)   as are the two kids that play the parts.  My whole family loved it.  The movie opens in theaters this Friday.  RSVP for Homeschool Day and be entered into a Sweepstakes!  Check my post for details!

About a month ago I asked for thoughts about using Skype and a Webcam for fun virtual home visits with parents and home schooled kids.    Just like my in-person school visit, I would talk about writing books, illustrating them, read one of my latest, and maybe run a short lesson on writing rhyme.  If a particular Mom needed something special I would be happy to fit in with her homeschooling needs. 


I also encourage the use of  active and powerful words when writing any story.   The idea is to paint instant word pictures in a reader's head. Doing this makes the plot and the characters come alive.  Reading is a Magic Carpet Ride to fun, adventure, and a chance for great educational opportunities.  Kids who read succeed!

I'm sponsoring a new Memory Monday Meme with a Link-up.  This is the first time I've done a link-up.   This first week is all about sharing what you do with Memory Work in your homeschool.   Then every Monday we will link-up and share what worked for us, what we worked on, what we have planned, tips for memorizing things, or what ever you want to post about memory work.   

I would love to have more link-ups so we can all share ideas.
