FREE Homeschooling Workshop – Monday, August 28th

You are invited to a FREE homeschooling workshop entitled “Teaching Tips for Grades K-6th” on Monday, August 28th, at 7:00PM at the Circle of Life Hospice Building in Springdale/Tontitown.

If in the past you have attended “Teaching Tips for the Elementary Grades,” then you have already heard the material in this workshop.  The workshop had gotten too long so Marni decided to split it in two — this one and “The Nitty Gritty of Homeschooling” (which will be presented on August 7th).

Teaching Tips for Grades K-6th – State standards, then practical tips for teaching Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science in grades K-6th.

This is a FREE workshop, but donations are accepted to help cover the cost of handouts.
RSVP’s are not needed.  It’s OK to come late or leave early.
There will be no childcare provided. Nursing infants and babes in arms are welcome, but please do not bring older children.

Directions:
From I49, take the Holiday Inn exit in Springdale (exit 72) and go west toward Tontitown.
Near Tontitown, turn right at the Jones Rd. stoplight. There is a Harps on the right at that intersection.
Circle of Life is the first building on the right after Harps, 901 Jones Rd.
It says “Circle of Life” on the building, but at the entrance there is a
sign that says “Willard and Pat Walker Family Center” and another that says “Earlene Howard Hospice Home.”

The Nitty Gritty of Homeschooling – Remedying academic problems typically found in public schools, planning lessons, scheduling the school day (or not,) occupying toddlers, socializing, avoiding burn-out, repeating and skipping grades, and choosing books at the library.

This is a FREE workshop, but donations are accepted to help cover the cost of handouts.

SAVE THE DATE: Homeschool Workshops, Aug. 7th & 28th

SAVE THE DATE! Mark your calendars for August 7th and August 28th, both Mondays at 7PM, for two homeschooling workshops from Marni Hendrix and Shelley Kinder.

The first workshop will cover what homeschooling looks like on a day-to-day basis, scheduling (or not!), avoiding burn-out, etc.

The second workshop will cover specific teaching ideas for each of the school subjects in K-6th grade.

These two nights cover the material that, in past years, has been included in the “Teaching Tips for the Elementary Grades” workshops.

Watch for more detailed announcements in the coming weeks!
