Home education is a valid and legal option. And there are lots of people doing it. This is a carnival of celebration, of encouragement, and I’m thrilled that so many people have joined in.
So without further ado, let’s take a wander. You may remember I posted some prompts – a few people have taken me up on some or all of them.
Hannah of Caterpillar tales covers the lot, including some wonderful pictures. In one of two posts, Anni addresses the daftest question she’s been asked about home education – that’s not actually a question I’ve been asked, but there you go. Keris is wondering how anyone could think that home education removes the children’s choices – she’s got a reasoned response to the question though.
Someone who has made a life out of following your heart, Nic brings on the dancing ponies as you would for a carnival – I’d call her inspirational, but I know that makes her giggle
Tech is another person who has upped stakes and travelled. They are settled at the moment, and she describes a primal sort of education in her carnival post.
Jo has done a round up of how home education has worked for them over the past 4 years. Mamacrow had a think about what her ideal home education would look like while Jo is growing weeds. Peapod is waiting for exam results as she ponders my questions.
Momma of mojo shares a lightbulb moment while Zoe answers why she home educates her hobbits. Mother Scuffer has a mix of back and not back to school children as does Alison of the Portico, who thinks this may be her last not back to school year.
Heading towards flexi schooling Leoarna wants to know whose curriculum is it anyway? and Nikki chooses this time of year to do an annual reevaluation of their education and how it works. She has also written up a fab post describing what home education looks like for them now.
Some older posts – Mamacrow chases away the doubts of I couldn’t do that Vanessa shares why they chose to home educate, Tania has compiled a why, where and how and Katie answers everything you ever wanted to know. We’ve even a post from down under, from when Shae’s children didn’t go back to school in January. And here’s the last carnival I shared, back in 2010.
Some fabulous posts there. I’m really hoping I’ve included everything I’ve been sent, but if I’ve missed something, just yell! If you’ve one you’d like to link to, please do pop it in the comments and I’ll add it into the post when I’ve a minute. Grab a cup of tea and enjoy.
