Home schooling has shown me how interconnected things really are. Our study of art (the Robert Shaw Memorial) led to a history lesson about the artist (Augustus Saint-Gaudens) and the circumstances of the people pictured in the memorial. I hadn't even planned to have the two intertwined like that, but I find it happens fairly often. I feel it makes for deeper connections and relevance in my children's minds which helps retention. Their pool of knowledge is expanded.
I've been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. My opinion will be entirely my own, so be sure to come back and read about my experience. Time4Learning can be used as a homeschool curriculum, for afterschool enrichment and for summer skill sharpening. Find out how to write your own curriculum review for Time4Learning.
