Neat Idea

Some folks in Illinois have come up with something new: a “homeschool-along.” Sounds similar to the kind of group artist and composer studies that take place at Ambleside Online and 4 Real Learning. From the Homeschool-Along site:

A monthly topic will be picked and we will all homeschool along. The first topic is China/Chinese in honor of Chinese New Year. Anytime you do something about the topic or find something cool about the topic, share it right here.

Michael at Family School is reading a book of essays by the author of Charlotte’s Web, and here’s what he has to say about it:

Lately I’ve been reading One Man’s Meat by E.B. White. I’ve decided this book is a blog from a time before blogs.

Since I consider even (Strunk and) White’s grammar text, The Elements of Style, to be pleasure-reading, One Man’s Meat is definitely going to the top of my must-read pile.
