What’s This Blog About?

NOTE:  I have moved the entire High on Homeschool blog over to Blogger.  Come over and take a look!  It’s been redesigned and is much more fun on the eyes.  Http://www.highonhomeschool.blogspot.com.

My mission is to dig up quirky and fun resources you can use to help your children learn about different subjects, whether you are a homeschooling family or not. There are clever folks out there who ponder over unusual ways to interest a child in a topic of knowledge; it’s these clever people who spark me and their materials are quickly becoming a big part of our homeschool curriculum. Cleverness needs to be applauded, except, of course, if you happen to be training a velociraptor. Then clever takes on a different spin, eh?

After logging many hours hunting for homeschooling resources that are creative and wildly fun, I’d like to share these resources with you, to hopefully make your job as a teacher or parent (or both) more enjoyable! When was the last time you picked up a book/DVD/game and said, “this is pure genius! What a terrific way to look at a topic!”

I hope you find some useful information here to make those teachable moments with your kids more silly. Please take the best and leave the rest and by all means, speak up if you find a stellar resource that knocks your socks off.

I’m also going to include the components of various unit studies we embarked upon which you can use as reference points if you wish.  And then I might as well add some thoughts about homeschooling and our experience to round it all out.

Why shouldn’t we have fun while we are learning? The means to that end are available – so let’s go find them!

Remember……what we feed our children every day in body and in spirit is what they will become.

  1. I agree! Why shouldn’t we have fun while learing? I also am trying to assemble interesting and creative ways of learning – emphasis on Medieval history. My family is putting together a non-profit with an emphasis on teaching homeschoolers through the trades, crafts and history of the Medieval history. Would love to share links with you!

    • Hi Scott – I checked out your site and must say you are on a very interesting quest. I am going to go back and look at the building of the trebuchet section; I’ve had that in the back of my mind for awhile so am glad to see a good resource! Thanks, too, for placing my blog on your blogroll. I’ll do the same. Gracias and best wishes with your endeavor!

    I love this quote! I’m copying it and putting it in a very visible spot as a reminder. Thanks!
