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

Issue #009 ~ March 2010 ~ Healthy Kids & Sport Activity Hint

Better Health
Are you concerned about the health of your children? My kids will tell you that I'm a little fanatical when it comes to our health! But I hated when the children had a cold or the flu. So, I was always on the look-out for ways to improve our health.

If you're looking, too, you will find helpful tips from my nurse-friend, Karen. She has years of homeschooling and nursing experience and has made that knowledge available to you via her blog, Back to Basics for Better Health. She asked me to help her produce informative podcasts. Head on over and listen! They're under 20 minutes and packed with great ideas. Let us know what you think!

1) Brain Teaser

What well-known American city was made by labor and time? I'll give you a hint because I could not figure it out without looking at the don't look YET! Unscramble instead.

(Answer at bottom.)

2) Helpful Homeschool Hints

Planning a Sports Activity? We homeschoolers tend to do things as a family. And I'm all for that, but as your children grow up, they tend to want to be a little more competitive. So, if you organize a sport like volleyball or football and want it for the older ones here's my suggestion. Advertise the age limit requirements followed by this effective little phrase...No Exceptions! That will hopefully keep the smaller ones from trickling in.

3) New Pages Added

Homeschool Q & A

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

Teaching Reading?
Teaching the Alphabet First?
Ordering Sonlight?
Area Homeschool Meetings - Milwaukee & elsewhere?
High School concerns with their preschooler?
What does it cost to homeschool grades 9-12?

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

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):
