Homeschool Hi-Lights Meme - Spring Break

Join in every Monday for the Homeschool Highlight Meme.

Write a post about a highlight from your past week of home learning. Here are some ideas: an accomplishment, an event or outing, a fun learning experience, a new educational product your family enjoys, an unexpected teachable moment. You can also use the Homeschool Hi-Lights graphic, if you want to.

Please remember to link back to this site, so that others can learn how to join in. Then, leave your link below. Visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends and to encourage each other in homeschooling. Thanks so much for your participation.

Normally, the Homeschool Hi-Lights Meme will be available with a Mr. Linky at 11:00 pm (eastern time) on Sunday.





My Homeschool Hi-Light - Spring Break


We had Spring Break this past week. It was very interesting to observe what my kids learned even though we were taking a break from school. It goes to show that learning is a natural part of a homeschooler's life.

Instead of focusing on just one Hi-Light, this week. I'm going to list a few real life learning hi-lights for this past week of Spring Break. All of these were fun things that the kids chose to do on their own.

  • My son made the Homeschool Hi-Lights graphic for me. He also helped me by setting up Mr. Linky. What would I do without his computer knowledge?
  • The girls did some outdoor experiments that involved: melting snow, ditches, shovels, rocks, and sand.
  • My son and I enjoyed 4 episodes of an astronomy show on the History channel.
  • The girls enjoyed learning how to cook some dinners with Dad.
  • We all played Dutch Blitz (helps with basic math skills and it really exercises the brain)

This was the high light of our week A field trip to the rocky shore
all the children had fun climbing over the rocks exploring and looking at all the sea creatures
and I was excited too when My Home Schooler developed his friendship more with Colin

I'm assuming we just link to that particular post when we participate each week.

This is a good idea, Ellen!

What a great idea! Our highlight this past week was going to the park for the first time this year (we had a long winter).

It's neat to see what the kids learn, even when you're on break. Then they can apply what they've learned to real life.

Also, I really like playing Dutch Blitz. I wonder if I can get Bug to play with me, since my husband won't. :)

Hi Ellen,

Thanks for visiting. My daughter is in two 4H clubs, baking (mostly yeast items) and pottery. She has had a great time so far in her clubs and the leaders are great.
