The Homeschool Expo is coming in May! If you are thinking about "attending," you can save $5 if you register by March 31. Right now the cost is $19.99, but after March 31, it will go up to $24.99. You can register at http://www.schoolhouseexpo.com. Right now, they are also offering a free ebook called Creative Nature Study when you register. This ebook is almost 100 pages long, and it includes lots of information that is great for this time of the year--when spring is on the way! It includes information and ideas about scavenger hunts, projects, creative writing, book lists, internet links, and information about flowers and bird watching. And if your family is like mine, you will also need the information that is included about doing a nature study with kids or adults who have allergies! I never would have thought to include that kind of information, but I'm really glad they did!
Now, back to the Expo! This is an online conference that you can listen to while it's going on, listen to later, or both. In fact, that's one of my favorite things about an online conference--the ability to listen to the speakers over and over again. It's often hard (for me at least) to soak in all of the information that I hear on the first hearing. I love to listen to them, make some notes, and go back and listen again later. I also love listening while I'm working around the house or riding in the car.
The expo will give you suggestions and encouragement and provide practical information as well. Hopefully it will also give you a dose of encouragement right here toward the end of the school year (for many of us) when we probably need it the most! Oh, and I forgot to mention that you will get two "bonus" days in April too.
I am looking forward to the Expo! I have only attended one other online expo like this one, and I loved it! I probably won't be able to make it to my own state homeschool convention this year because of a date conflict, so I am glad to be able to attend this one right from my own home.
