Getting Ready for Convention Season

It's hard to believe but for my homeschooling friends, convention season will be upon us really soon!  Our big event in PA is in May.  Some people love Great Homeschool Conventions for their encouragement and entertainment.  Truthfully, I haven't been to a convention for a number of years.  I opted to save my money and put it toward curriculum and books instead of spending it on a day out.

BUT, if you are convention-bound, I just read this great post on making a convention notebook at Peace Creek on the Prairie.  I've just discovered and started following this blog.  It's a treasure!  Check out her convention notebook.  If I go to the CHAP fair this year, I'm making one of these!

  1. Why is there a need for a child to have a Christian home schooling curriculum? Aside from other academic subjects, the program must also include discussion about various religions and topics about morality. This opens the child’s awareness about other beliefs and makes him appreciate Christianity more. We need to discuss to them the life of the people who influenced Christianity. The main individuals of the Bible must also be properly presented. This will also help them respect others according to their principles. The program must incorporate Bible history on other academic subjects so that the students will better understand how religion influences all aspects of life. Science must be debated in the context of God’s creation. The lesson plan must include Biblical events that can be discussed or explained further to the child to better understand and absorb the values there is. The school must include text books, quizzes and parents’ kits needed in order to support the child’s learning process. Since lessons must be done at home, the program must consider giving the students assignments that will not require them doing some extra effort like going to libraries to get some answers. Providing multimedia for kids is advisable to help the child clearly distinguish the things that words or textbooks cannot explain in detail. Parents have the right to Christian home school curriculum should be completed to allow them to mold the child according to their principles.
