Welcome to CoH Week 30! Here in The Lilting House, we are mighty big fans of Schoolhouse Rock (which recently celebrated its own 30th anniversary). It gives us, therefore, great pleasure to present the Schoolhouse Rock edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling. Enjoy!

A Noun Is a Person, Place, or Thing
it’s any name you’ve ever heard,
I find it quite interesting…

In a link-packed series of posts about homeschooling preschoolers, Elizabeth Foss takes a look at what a wonderful thing it is to satisfy a small child’s appetite for learning with treasures like the art box, enjoyable language arts materials, and number fun.

At Trivium Pursuit, Laurie Bluedorn gives her best copywork advice.

Dawn Hanigan talks books, books, and more books in What’s the Big (Book) Idea?

In an inspiring post called Cleaning Up the Schoolroom, Karen Edmisten examines what Henry Ward Beecher means when she says, "A mother’s heart is the child’s schoolroom."

I went to the four-legged zoo, to visit my four-footed friends…

At Principled Discovery, Dana discusses Meerkats, Homeschooling and the Socialization Question.

The Common Room‘s Deputyheadmistress shares an arkful of More Neat Pond Study Websites.

At Sweetness and Light, Happyheartsmom’s children are having Fanciful Fun With Fairies.

Verb: That’s What’s Happening
I don’t know my own power…

At Lone Star Academy, Brandi is finalizing her 2006/2007 curriculum & schedule. Over in The Heart of the Home, Janet is also assessing her goals for the upcoming school year.

My Hero Zero
…such a funny little hero,
until you came along, we counted on our fingers and toes…

 At Learning Life Through Unschooling, Amalapert asks: What About Math?

Updated! Elena chimes in with an Ode to Saxon Math.
 

Sprittibee
shares her top ten list of things to do when you first start
homeschooling (especially if you live in Texas).

 

Interjection!
So when you’re happy (Hurray!) or sad (Aw!)
Or frightened (Eeeeeek!) or mad (Rats!)
Or excited (Wow!) or glad (Hey!)
An interjection starts a sentence right.

At Why Homeschool, Janine discusses a few reasons why some people are hostile to homeschooling.

for this high-powered, revved-up body machine

Researchers have made it official: kids need to play outside. Barbara Frank asks: Shouldn’t this be obvious?

Beginning homeschooler Mary Beth shares her thoughts on mommy burnout.

Three-Ring Government
…Talkin’ about the government and how it’s arranged,
    Divided in three like a circus…

Spunky has been following the fight between the parents of 16 year
old homeschooler Abraham Cherrix and the State of Virginia to determine
who is the final authority in his medical treatment for Hodgkins
Lymphoma. The outcome of this case is precedent setting in parents’
rights to determine what is best for their children. Says the boy’s father: Pray this never happens to you.

CraftyMama wonders what makes a homeschooling friendly candidate.

The Shot Heard Round the World
…was the start of the revolution!
The Minute Men were ready on the move…

At Farm School, Becky is saddened but not particularly surprised to read a recent New
York Times article about the continuing poor quality of textbooks,
which gives her the chance to enthuse about some more of her
favorite history books.

TexasEd says: It can be hard to teach thinking outside the box
when you measure your success by your acceptance inside the box.

In our contribution, we take a look at an educator who thought outside the box and inspired a multitude. (And for a daily dose of this esteemed personage’s writings, visit the brand-new blog A Full Life.)
