Sharing Life's Simple Rewards of Homeschooling

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

Issue #022 ~March 2011~

1) Book Nook

This month let's call it the Song Nook! Kids remember so much more when they put it a tune. It's amazing, they're able to easily remember presidents, states, Bible books, the list is endless, really! Our all time favorite is Geography Songs (Book & Cassette) It taught the children geography in a fun way and they still remember it to this day!

Do you have a favorite home school book? If you do, let us all know!

2) Brain Teaser

Can you make another word from the letters which form the word "chesty"? There's only one.

(Answer at bottom.)

3) Helpful Homeschool Hints

Okay, I know we suggested songs this month to help with memorization. But when it comes to successfully teach phonics you must start with reading to your children when they're still a baby! Pick books with interesting pictures and just a few words. Gradually point to words, make sounds together to even develop his dramatic abilities! Bottom line is READ.

You will make your children lovers of reading!

4) New Pages Added

Last month we introduced you to Marley. She is our new money saving expert! And she's added quite a number of great new pages to help you save money in your home. Check out the new additions for finding cheap clothes, home improvements, and travel tips. She continues to add more, so check back often! She truly is a Money Saving Expert!
Are you giving vitamin supplements to your children? If you are, be sure you're giving them quality vitamins and minerals or risk multivitamin side effects. I was amazed to learn what can happen when you take synthetic vitamins. Educate yourself to protect your family.

5) 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):

Discipline Q & A

Not Listening - Kelly's 3rd grader is not listening. She wonders if he simply does not get it because of his dyslexia or if he's actually disobeying. Kristina gives her great insight.

Your Math Reviews

Life of Fred - Wildflower School comments why this curriculum is such a blessing.
