Welcome to the “World School” edition of carnival of homeschooling.
We’ve been cooped up in our house by the blowing snow and freezing temperatures.
Here are some fun ideas of how homeschooling lets us explore the world (even if we can’t actually bask in the sun like we’d love to. )
So, where in the world would you like to go today for school?
Close Encounters with Africa, wild animals, (and younger siblings)
Katherine presents mother’s helper posted at No Fighting, No Biting!, saying, “I’m giving the idea of hiring a young person to play with the little ones while I complete school with the older children another go. I would rather pay someone to play with them than have them watch Veggie Tales yet again so we can get math completed in peace.”
Visiting Paris -The City of Love
Megan presents In two straight lines they broke their bread posted at Afterschooling Expat saying, “In this post, our family, Americans living in Germany, visit Paris and use Madeline books as inspiration for learning about the famous, iconic Paris sites.”
Just in time for Valentine’s Day: Serfronya presents Printable Valentine Cards for Kids: Print These and Make Them Look as Good as Store Bought Cards posted at Frugal Educator.
Take a Trip to The Moon, (and it’s Cold in Outer Space)
The Earth itself (is it spring yet??)

Janice Campbell presents Homeschoolers: What’s the Least You Need to Teach? posted at Taking Time for Things That Matter, saying, “If you’re feeling overwhelmed at homeschooling your students through high school, remember that you don’t have to teach them everything they’ll ever need to know.”
Jamie Gaddy presents Are We Frustrating our Children? – Blogs – Parent Community and Forum posted at Homeschool Online, saying, “Without knowing it, parents often cause frustration for their children… let’s talk about how to avoid it!”
