Edition 01 2009

Welcome to the first edition of the Canadian Home Educators Blog Carnival for 2009! It's been a long time since our last edition. I was having some computer problems that made preparing the carnival extremely frustrating. Thanks to my mom and sister, however, I am now the owner of a new laptop and no longer have to endure the troubles my old computer inflicted on me. :) This week's edition is a few days late but things should be on track from here on in.

Let's get started on our trip across Canada visiting home educating families along the way.

Dawn, in Nova Scotia, says "Goodbye Spongebob" as she tells us about their preparations for a move.

A new comer to the carnival, Cheryl, in New Brunswick, tells us about her son's interest in Nihongo (Japanese Language) and how she is making it a part of his learning.

Lorraine, in New Brunswick, tells us how she gave her children a Centrifugal Force Lesson Plan, Unschool Version.

Phyllis, in Ontario, talks about some tools she's found to help with the Teaching of Writing.

Jennifer, in Alberta, shares how she uses children's exercise videos to do Phys. Ed at 30 Below.

Lori, in Alberta, tells us about their projects for Literary World 2008.

Becky, in Alberta, tells us about some Real life science they experienced in November.

Rosina, in British Columbia, tells us about A Great Spelling Website & It's FREE!

Miranda, in British Columbia, tells us about her 5 year old doing More hands-on equations.

That's the end of our visits in Canada but we also have a visit with a Canadian homeschooling in another part of the world.

Colleen, a Canadian living in Guam, says, "God Smiles on us in Guam" as she explains how the sky in Guam looks different.

And that's the end of this trip. Thank you to each of you that invited us to visit and thanks to those of you that came along for the trip.

One change in the carnival from now on is that I will not be going looking for submissions - it just takes too much time. The carnival will consist only of submissions that are sent in, so it is essential that you help me spread the word and help keep the carnival going. Please post about the carnival on your blog, submit yourself, and encourage others to do so also.

If all goes well the next edition will be posted Monday, January 12, but the deadline for submissions will be Saturday, January 10. That means you have to get busy and submit ASAP. :) Hope to hear from all of you.

Happy homeschooling!
