For the past few years, Homeschooling Hearts & Minds has started the New Year with the Virtual Curriculum Fair. I’m so excited---we have over 2 dozen homeschool bloggers participating this year, many of whom have joined us previous years, but some new participants as well.
You can read all about what the Virtual Curriculum Fair (VCF) is here and visit posts from the past 3 years.
In a nutshell: The VCF is a month-long blog Fair/Carnival where homeschool bloggers share what really works for them when it comes to teaching their kids. We do talk about published programs that we use, but, more importantly, we also talk about the other bits and pieces that all come to together to form an individual course of study for life. Our goal is to keep it real while providing you with encouragement and inspiration.
Here is our schedule this year (I will add links to this intro post as each week goes live):
- January 5th---Playing with Words: the Language Arts---includes phonics, reading, writing, grammar, spelling, speech, literature, etc., etc., etc. Latin and foreign language studies could also go here.
- January 12th---Discovering Patterns: Mathematics, Logic, and Science---includes anything to do with mathematics, mathematical thinking, numbers, arithmetic, symbolic logic, critical thinking, and math-y sciences (physics, chemistry, etc.).
- January 19th---Exploring Our World: Social Studies and more Science---includes history, geography, world cultures, worldview, biology, botany, geology, etc., etc., etc.
- January 26th---Seeking Beauty: the Arts and Everything that Brings Beauty to Our World---includes any of the arts, handicrafts, but really ANYTHING at all that adds beauty to your homeschool.
Don’t miss a single week---join the Homeschooling Hearts & Minds mailing list to get the VCF delivered to your inbox.
