Home Schooling three young daughters classically with a dash of whatever strikes our fancy. We take our thinking outside of the classroom and Into the World.

Do you have any tips for helping kids concentrate on their studies?

What's an educational game or activity you and your kids love?

How do you encourage a love of reading in your kids?

Please share a link to a photo of the most organized space in your house -- whether it's a closet, drawer, toy shelf, etc.

Since making the decision to homeschool my children I have delved wholeheartedly into the adventure and have amassed a wealth of materials and resources. In order to keep track of everything efficiently I have created an organized homeschooling area that surpasses all other areas in my house in terms of organization and tidiness. Now if only I could get the rest of my house up to this standard I would be VERY happy. But I suppose it's only natural to spend more time and give more attention to the things that we love, and instilling a love of learning and fostering a well-rounded education in my children is my top priority right now. http://www.teachingstars.com/2012/05/09/confessions-of-a-curriculum-junkie-part-2/

What trend (toy, game, clothing style, etc.) are kids your child's age hooked on right now? (Please include your child's age and a link if you can.)

My 3 year old is obsessed with her Dr. Suess Stretchy ABC game. She's recently learned her letters and sounds and she loves showing off her knowledge with this fun and engaging game. It's basically twister for young children! http://www.teachingstars.com/2012/05/14/more-fun-than-a-barrel-of-monkeys/
