As homeschoolers, we have more time to teach our children more non-academic skills, like sewing. I love this post at At Home: Where Life Happens that shows some simple sewing projects that the students made as baby shower gifts. I’m embarrassed to admit that, although I sew a lot, I haven’t spent to time to teach my daughter how to sew.
In my constant search for the best curricula available, I love hearing what resources have worked well for other families. This week, Kym at Homeschool Coffee Break shared some of her favorite programs. Some, like The Power in Your Hands (review coming soon), and IEW’s Linguistic Development through Poetry Memorization are favorites for us as well.
