Mark your calendar and plan to attend these Fall Homeschool Help Workshops:
Tuesday, Oct. 21 @ 7 pm – Homeschooling Through Highschool (This topic will be repeated in the spring)
— Information on highschool courses and credits, grades and transcripts, ACT/SAT tests, graduation, etc. Relevant for parents with students in 6th grade and up.
Thursday, Nov. 6 @ 7 pm – A repeat of Getting Started Homeschooling
— Information on how to file intent-to-homeschool forms, encouragement and what to expect for the first year, local support groups, legal support organizations, requirements and the law, and more.
If you know someone who is considering homeschooling for the first time, or someone who started last year but has never attended a workshop like this, please invite them.
Monday, Nov. 10 @ 7 pm – Teaching the Distractible Child
— We will be listening to an audio CD of a two-part workshop from a convention in OK City, given by Carol Barnier. It was so relevant and funny that Marni wanted to share it. You will go home with many teaching ideas you can start immediately. If you have a child who gets distracted easily, or is perpetually moving, or is ADHD or ADD, or is a kinesthetic learner, it will help you.
All homeschooling parents are invited to attend these free Homeschool Help Workshops, which are organized by veteran home educators Marni Hendrix and Shelley Kinder. Both Marni and Shelley have many years of experience and have homeschooled children through graduation. These workshops are FREE but donations are accepted to help cover the cost of handouts. The event is not sponsored by a support group, and you do not need to be a member of any group to attend.
Childcare is not provided at the workshop. Nursing infants and babes in arms are welcome.
Directions to Circle of Life hospice:
– From I540 (now called I49), take the 412 / Sunset exit (#72) in Springdale, and drive west toward Tontitown.
– Turn right at the Jones Rd. stoplight (the intersection with the Harps store on the right/north side of 412). Circle of Life is the first building on the right after Harps, 901 Jones Rd. It says Circle of Life on the building, but the sign at the entrance reads Willard and Pat Walker Family Center.
