Classical Homeschooling Carnival #22

Welcome to the 22nd edition of Classical Homeschooling Carnival! I haven't been doing the carnival as often lately, but here is another one, and in spite of my inconsistency, there are some great posts submitted!

Misty presents My 5-year-old wrote his first computer program with Scratch posted at Homeschool Bytes, saying, "If you've got kids interested (obsessed:-) with video games, give them a chance to write their own beginning level programs with Scratch."

Ann presents Grandma Moses - Artist Appreciation posted at Harvest Moon by Hand. She shares the method they use to do their art appreciation, which looks outstanding.

Pamela says, Thanks for the Well Intentioned Dream Squelching posted at Blah, Blah, Blog, saying, "While I wrote this post a while ago, and some people may argue that following up on goals and dreams isn't a focus of homeschooling, I believe that it's one of the most important lessons we can give our children. Life is full of people who will tell your kids what they CAN'T do, but with the ability to design their curriculum, we also have the ability to help them find ways to accomplish extraordinary things."

Jodi presents Meaningful Mama: Day #27 - Reading Hop posted at Meaningful Mama, where she has some great pictures of her awesome ideas for incorporating physical movement into her phonics instruction.

Tiger's Mum presents How many ways to classify? posted at The Tiger Chronicle. She shows some fun activities they did in talking about groups of animals.

Here at Baby Steps, we were fortunate to have a trip to see a bee hive; Hero got to wear the bee gear on get right up close and personal!
