    Are you resigned to the fact that attending college is expensive? Most of us hope for the best: scholarships and financial aid, yet try to prepare for the worst: how to repay huge student loans. There is another way. Since many introductory college courses are a repeat of those studied in high school, your student can earn college credits for those courses while in high school - and you can cut your college costs in half! This is a great follow-up workshop to Homeschooling Your High Schooler.

We will then look at the how-to’s for getting it done and some of the resources available to get people on their way. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll wonder why you waited.

    The Math Games Workshop is now at a new level. Many of you have said that you need to actually play the games to be able to teach them to your family at home. So, this is it. We’ll cover the why’s and how’s of using games to bring math to life and increase understanding in students. Then we’ll dive into a time of learning and playing math games that include everything from understanding number basics, getting the facts straight, the base ten system, and the operations. Space will be somewhat more limited since we’ll have tables set up for our game time. Let’s play!

    Non-refundable registration fee: $10.00 (includes same-night $5 store credit)

    Gain a fresh perspective how your children’s actions and attitudes can lead you to discover their natural bent so you can plan strategies that will help them to grow into the person they were created to be. This workshop will provide insight into a variety of ways we can effectively teach to various learning styles in our children.

    Watch for more workshops starting early next year. Please check back in early January.
