PAST CONFERENCE SESSIONS
SESSION: THE BIG PICTURE OF EDUCATION. WHY DO WE EDUCATE OUR CHILDREN?
It's hard to stay focused on the day-to-day busy-ness of raising our children if the big picture isn't firmly in our minds. We need to see the end goal, every day. This session will focus on the "why" of educating children, and the role of home education.
SESSION: DICTATION, LOVE, & LANGUAGE
Dictation, used well, is the single most effective and efficient tool at our disposal to teach all aspects of language arts. In a joyful learning environment, we discover the world of language one-on-one with our children. Each lesson is perfectly tailored to skill level and aptitude, from K to high school. Learn how all of the language arts can be taught in one 5-10 minute lesson daily.
SESSION: KEEPING THE RELATIONSHIP INTACT
Keeping our relationships intact with our children will be the way we gain their cooperation, but more importantly, how we maintain our influence with them as we raise them. Creating a sphere of influence, respect, and love is the way to joyful family living.
SESSION: A WELL ORDERED LIFE - FINDING THE GOOD, THE TRUE, AND THE BEAUTIFUL AMIDST THE LAUNDRY
What has laundry got to do with a rich homeschooling life? Order changes everything. In the laundry room, kitchen, activity choices and in our hearts...order helps our mood and our productivity. How do we "get order" when we are so busy raising children? It is valuable, freeing AND possible!
SESSION: FAMILY CENTRED LEARNING
