201st Carnival of Homeschooling Saving Time

“What children need is not new and better curricula but access to more and more of the real world; plenty of time and space to think over their experiences, and to use fantasy and play to make meaning out of them; and advice, road maps, guidebooks, to make it easier for them to get where they want to go (not where we think they ought to go), and to find out what they want to find out.”  ~John Holt~ Teach Your Own

Carnival of Homeschooling, homeschool resources, gift of time

Homeschooling offers children the time and space they need to learn, grow and thrive. As we turned the clocks back this week-end, I thought of all the many hours we have  enjoyed with our children over the years thanks to homeschooling. Below are a variety of  posts that offer ideas and ways others are enjoying  that precious  family time.

    It’s actually Amber Morris, not John Morris — that’s my husband. He probably wouldn’t want to take the credit for the clutter and chaos post, ha. ;) Thanks for hosting the carnival this week.

    I’ll fix that Amber– it came in as Amber on one and John Morris on another.

  3. Amber on November 3rd, 2009 11:26 am

    How confusing! Hope it wasn’t something I did. Thanks for fixing!

  4. Heather @ Marine Corps Nomads on November 3rd, 2009 3:29 pm

    Thanks for adding my submissions. :-) The theme is cute! Well done.

  9. Mia on November 4th, 2009 7:50 am

    I don’t understand what Greg Laden’s blog has to do with homeschooling?

  10. Mary on November 4th, 2009 8:08 am

    Gosh Mia– you may be right about Greg’s. I thought I’d scoured each one, but apparently I missed one. My apologies.

  11. Mia on November 4th, 2009 8:43 am

    I’m not offended, and I have no problem reading articles that do not reflect my specific values. It’s just that he just doesn’t seem to be someone who is necessarily “for” homeschooling. His post could be taken as an insult to homeschoolers as well as professional educators. I searched his web site for something on homeschooling, but didn’t find anything. I did find an open hostility to those who hold differing opinions regarding science and religion.

  12. admin on November 4th, 2009 9:55 am

    Mia- After taking a third and fourth look at this, I have to agree and I’ve removed his post.


  13. Rana on November 5th, 2009 9:31 am
