Carnival of Homeschooling, Learning Inspiration Edition

Homeschool Carnivals are a great opportunity to see what others are doing to train up and teach their children at home.  This week's submissions were quite the bundle of inspiration and ideas...

My number one pick, as we stand mid-autumn and prepare to launch into November and a month of thankful-fors is....

Other inspiring submissions to this week's Carni-event:

For those grade-school aged kiddos out there, here are some fun ideas for pocket charts and wall calendars at Mustard Seed Mommy.

Tea Time with Annie Kate also shared some wonderful information on a great novel writing program for those budding writers of all ages!

What do you do for History in your homeschool?  Eclectic Momma inspires us with some helpful tips on coordinating a History Fair Sharing event.

How about traveling Down a Rabbit Trail with Rebecca Taberski as she gives us a glimpse of some unexpected fun in their school day.

Do you test in your homeschool?  Have you thought about it and are curious what other homeschool parents out there do?  Visit Joyous Lessons and sample a detailed "Term 1 Exam" for this mom's second graders.

As we wrap up the list of wonderful submissions to this week's carnival, take a moment to be encouraged by Henry Cate's article, The Next Generation of Homeschoolers.  How can we inspire our children to be more than just learners... to become teachers themselves.

My submission is this... Whatever you do and however you do it... do it for the Lord and not for man.  States have expectations, individual families have expectations, but the greatest expectation is that of our Lord and Savior which is to grow in the Word and in Truth. Be sure to steep all lessons in this.

And Jesus increased in wisdom and in years, and in divine and human favor. 
Luke 2:52

Let us foster an environment where our children might grow as Jesus grew!

Be blessed for a marvelous homeschool week.  Thank you for visiting this edition of The Carnival of Homeschooling.  Be sure to submit next week.  If you would like to HOST the Carnival of Homeschooling, contact Henry Cate and he would be happy to add you to the schedule.  Also, thank you to all those who participated this week!

    1. It was a blessing. The carnival didn't go as I had thought/planned... it went much better and I was grateful to be inspired by your post in the midst of it :-)
