Welcome to DAY TWO of the 2019 Canadian Online Homeschool Conference!
The world of homeschooling is already looked at as something rare and out of the norm, adding autism to that experience sure shakes things up even more. In this session, I discuss our experience homeschooling our six year old son,Emmett. He was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at three and a half years old. Understanding this journey from the heart is very important, not just what is expected on paperwork. I share what I have been taught, because I feel I am just as much the student learning every day as our eldest son, maybe even more. (Playtime: 29:46)
Cultivating political awareness in your homeschool is not only achievable, but it’s also a critical part of your child’s development. Find out how you can play a vital role in engaging your children in politics and help them to make a positive difference. Discover how to build upon your family values while helping your children understand the importance of the political process. (Playtime: 13:13)
Have you ever been asked to write a story but had no idea where to start?
By the end of this Story Quest workshop, you’ll have written a story using two characters you created. And you’ll get to share your story on a Forum.
If you hate writing, you’ll be happy to know you can write a complete story using only seven sentences.
If you love writing, you’ll be happy to know you can expand the ideas in those seven sentences into a much longer story.
Once you know the seven-sentence formula, starting stories gets a whole lot easier.
Mindfulness and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) may be a new concept for you and your child. What does it mean? How can you incorporate SEL into your child’s learning routine? It may seem overwhelming! This session will give you simple tools you can use to include social-emotional learning into your child’s day. Using a 3-prong approach and detailed example, you’ll leave with a template that can be applied to any social-emotional theme you wish to explore with your child. (Playtime: 27:10)
