Experience Life. Experience Learning. Homeschool! The Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers 2009 Conference and Resource Fair will be held May 22-23 at the Science Museum in Richmond, VA. Join us for a weekend of information and support with homeschoolers throughout Virginia and see how we experience life and experience learning by schooling our children at home. VaHomeschoolers welcomes featured speaker Kathleen Melin, author of By Heart: A Mother’s Story of Children and Learning at Home. Through her warm and delightful story, Kathleen reminds us that despite the daily grind, busy schedules and pressure of not living up to our own expectations, we are the experts of our own lives and the best teachers of our children. Kathleen will also speak on reluctant writers and customizing curricula with resources and formats beyond textbooks and worksheets. VaHomeschoolers offers our most comprehensive conference yet with sessions on homeschooling teens, struggling learners, co-ops, teaching history and science, beginning homeschooling, socialization and many more! Visit our expanded vendor hall for the latest in homeschooling resources, then shop for great deals on curricula and homeschool materials at the used resource fair. There’s fun for the whole family with a puppet show, storytelling and ice cream social. For more information visit www.vahomeschoolers.org/conference/.
