Trivium Tuesdays-Classical Link-Up #70

Pin It



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.

I'm still working on transferring the All Things Classical list over to Pinterest.  If you don't follow me over there already, make sure you do so that you can search the boards to find just what you need!  Click on the "P" to follow!


Featured Post


Gena, over at I Choose Joy, shared a documentary with us last week about children and the media.  This topic always intrigues me.  I really don't mind the idea of electronics, but I always end up hating how my kids act after using them...and how much they really, really want to use them!  My husband and I actually just took our TV downstairs this afternoon.  We really don't watch much except DVDs (well, the kids watch PBS, but that might have to stop if our one rabbit eat won't pick up the station down there!), so it's not actually going to change our viewing habits.  Mainly, we are hoping that it will be "out of sight, out of mind" for the kids.  We will see how it  goes!


Most Clicked on Post from Last Week


The most visited from last week was Dianna, from The Kennedy Adventures, sharing her curriculum pics for the new school year.  Actually all of the curriculum pick posts got a lot of clicks last week.  It's that time of year, of course!


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 =)

  1. Thanks for the feature, Amy. Media addiction is so prevalent today. I hope everyone will begin to take steps to prevent it from negatively affecting their lives.

  2. Have you read The Plug In Drug? That book explains what physically happens to kids when they watch TV. No matter if it's educational or not, kids were not made to sit that long and that's why they get so crazy when the show goes off. There really is a thing called a TV trance when you say the kids name and they won't even look at you during a show. She explains what the TV is doing to their brain to hold their attention like that. My kids are on very limited media time. I'd rather them be moving, playing, and creating.

    1. No, I haven't read that. It sounds interesting! I completely agree about rather having them be moving and creating! I'm going to see if my library has that book...
