Weekly Homeschool Roundup: 9/28/19

This week I found some great audio content for you, as well as a couple of other good things.

Recently I have spent a lot of time listening - to podcasts, audiobooks, and music - in the car while driving, while folding laundry, and while walking the dog. It’s a good time to sneak in learning for me and to scout out good content for you!

It’s hard to believe September is drawing to a close. I put the fall decorations out and had a pumpkin cheesecake muffin. Bring on October!

I’d love to know if any of my 5 recommendations this week strike a particular chord with you.

  • Social media - 5 Questions to Ask Yourself - and to Share With Your Children

    This podcast, from Janet & Doug Newberry, isn’t only about social media. You can ask your children these 5 questions about anything. I am looking forward to having a discussion with my kids about this episode. There is A LOT to think about there.

  • The Art (and Awfulness) of the Cliffhanger

    Anne Bogel is one of my favorite online people - and I love her podcast, What Should I Read Next? On this episode she is doing some literary matchmaking for two sisters - ages 10 and 12. It’s SO good… if you have pre-teen book lovers in your house, then you will want to share this episode with them - and be prepared to hit the library afterward.

  • A 4-year-old lost her favorite stuffed cat. It turned up 14 years later behind her house.

    I’m sure a lot of you have read The Well Trained Mind. Well, the author of that beloved homeschooling handbook just had something really excellent happen at her home. This article made me smile.

  • Consider this as you interact with your children - and pretty much anyone:

    This quote, posted by a friend of mine on Facebook last week, has really changed the way I have related with everyone. I hope I can be more intentional about listening to those around me.

Being Heard Quote

We’re on the road to a wedding in Chicago this weekend - my nephew (who was an adorable ring bearer in my wedding 22 years ago!) is getting married. I’m looking forward to a happy occasion with lots of family. Plus, I get to spend three whole days with my college girl!

It’s funny how much life changes, isn’t it?

Let me hear from you - did you have something that struck you this week?

Share it with me in the comments!
