Welcome to another week of Trivium Tuesdays! For those of you who are new here today, this is a link-up aimed at encouraging and informing other homeschoolers who use the Classical model of teaching. Here we can share with each other and learn from one another.
Today I am featuring Creating Presidential Reports for Early Elementary Students from Ticia at Adventures in Mommydom. I loved her post because we are doing very much the same thing over here these days. I think that having a child express what they learned in a composition of their own (as opposed to filling out a worksheet or taking a multiple choice quiz) is so effective and gratifying for the child. You can see one way that I'm doing this with my son in my post Help Your Child Capture the Story.
A great tool to have your children use for this is notebooking pages. I want to take a quick minute to tell you about a great facebook party that is going on tonight for the company, NotebookingPages.com. They are celebrating their 7th year in business and want to celebrate with all kinds of giveaways, freebies, and discounts! They are having a facebook party TONIGHT from 9-10pm and would love for you to be there. I'll be there =)
Most Clicked-On Post from Last Week
The most clicked on post from last week was Why My 8 Year Old Loves His Latin Curriculum from Intoxicated on Life. This post was simply a video of Trisha's son talking about Visual Latin, and reading to us some of what he has learned! I thought it was great!
This Week's Link-Up
Here are the rules:
- Your post must have to do (in some way) with classical homeschooling (any age children).
- Your post may be from your archives as long as you only post it one time on this link-up.
- Please link to your direct post, not your blog in general.
- Please place my Trivium Tuesdays button (found on my right sidebar) on your blog post so others can learn about this link-up!
- It may be helpful to state in your link description what stage of the trivium or what subject your post is about, if applicable, so others can easily find posts they are interested in looking at.
- Remember, everyone loves comments =) So don't be shy, and tell someone if you liked their post!
I reserve the right to remove any link-up that does not have to do with classical homeschooling. If you are a regular here at Trivium Tuesdays and have something to share that is a little off topic, but still would be an encouragement to the readers here, please still share it =) I'm referring to people who are just trying to get their blog more exposure without following the rules above.
I will visit each of your blogs this week and feature my favorite link-up for all to see next week! Also, if your blog has a button I will place it on my sidebar (under Friends to Visit) for the week until it is replaced by the next week's favorite =)
