Have taught my 9 children for over 25 years, through all subject areas. Also, I've enjoyed teaching some small group classes in beginning Spanish, drawing, and preschool music and movement. I like music and arts, and have a hobby of making fabric arts (felt toys at http://www.etsy.com/shop/fuzzlemania). As a songwriter, I've taken an interest in researching different music and musicians, and have a music adventure blog (random music history featuring different songs, musicians, genres, time periods, cultures)-- it is at http;//notesandnotions.weebly.com.
We are electic in our homeschool, using a variety of materials and methods. We like to use read-alouds for science and history/geography, along with some artwork and hands-on activities. We used notebooks that had just a few pages (updated for new material fairly regularly) that we went through daily-- as a lap or couch activity with Mom, with young preschoolers through about second grade. Homeschooling blog is at www.gentleshepherdweavings.blogspot.com.
Won a Lakeshore contest for an idea for making lacing cards that have pictures integrating with the lacing.
I've studied naturopathy as an adult, and have had a GREAT time learning many other things with my kids :)
