Homeschool Rewards Zone brings you the latest additions to one family's rewarding experiences of homeschooling simply.
Happy New Year!
1) Brain Teaser
Mr. Evans took a group to dinner. Seated at the table were one grandfather, two fathers, one grandmother, two mothers, four children, three grandchildren, two brothers, one sister, three sons, one daughter, two married men, two married women, one father-in-law, one mother-in-law, and one daughter-in-law. But it was a small enough group that paying for the dinners didn't bankrupt Mr. Evans. How many were in the party?
(Answer at bottom.)
2) Helpful Homeschool Hints
*Use your crock pot! Your afternoon will be more relaxed and peaceful knowing that supper is already done!
*Have your little ones march around the house just before supper, preferably outside. You'll be surprised how much calmer supper will be!
3) New Pages Added

This month's questions: (Answers at the bottom of the web page.) How do you teach Art and Music? How do you teach different ages? Is it difficult to homeschool with a new baby? Do homeschoolers qualify for college scholarships? What's required in the college application process?
Abeka Forum - Jamie answered a couple of great questions this month: How many hours do you spend on Abeka's DVD program including seat work? What's the difference between accredited and non-accredited Abeka programs?
