Homeschool Rewards Zone brings you the latest additions to one family's rewarding experiences of homeschooling simply.

Issue #008 ~ February 2010

Family News
Many of you ask what's new with us! I'm humbled that you want to know!

My little ones aren't so little anymore, especially if you look at some of the pictures of them on the site as children! In fact we have two in college already. Whew! Where did the time go?

So, we put a page together that we'll keep current with the latest happenings in our family. We call it...Wassup?, and I think you'll find in kinda fun. Enjoy!

1) Brain Teaser

A boy had a few candies. he ate a quarter of them and then gave one to a friend. This left him with two-thirds of what he started with. How many did he have originally?

(Answer at bottom.)

2) Helpful Homeschool Hints

*Locate a north wall in your home to hang big maps of the U.S. and the World. We look at these maps all the time. And it really helps being on a north wall to best learn north, south, east, and west.

3) New Pages Added

January Homeschool Q & A

Again, we obtained quite a collection of great questions this past month:

What is a normal daily schedule like?
Do you homeschool year round?
How do you do sports?
How do you deal with negative reactions from friends/family?
Where can I get resources for homeschooling in my state?
What does it cost to homeschool grades 9-12?

Answers to these questions can be found at the bottom of this page.

January Discipline Q & A

Back Talking - Kristina was asked a difficult question by Christina from Oklahoma. Her son also has Asperger's syndrome. Don't miss Kristina's recommendations.

4) Terrific Contributions From Visitors Like You!

Every month we will share the best visitors' pages submitted the month before. We appreciate everyone's input, but there are some that really shine. My family votes on the best of the best. Here are this month's top picks (in no particular order):

EuroRails - Lona from Michigan really likes this game of strategy for her older kids. Check out the other game suggestions while you're there...Toss Across and Scrabble Slam.

5) # Visitors in January
