You Want To Homeschooling In Remote Area?

In fact, we physically exist in a remote area with very limited means. But I do not want our knowledge to be limited too, especially for my son. Today I read a few questions from a homeschool forum, asking if they can homeschool in remote area. Of course you can, but you have to do your homeschool a little different than at the city. However, the environment are different.
If you want to homeschooling in remote area, here are the differences than in city:
√ Remote area is far away from city, it makes the shipping cost for your homeschool resources, especially books, more expensive.
√ Remote area doesn’t have good library. You should manage your needs of good books by yourself.
√ You will not find wifi hotspot everywhere in remote area. At the city, we are easily find wifi hotspot everywhere, in library, cafe, mall.
√ No fast food restaurant. You have to cook your own but healthy meal.
√ Not all your needs are met in remote area, often you have to take a far away trip and long duration only to buy your needs, such as medicine, book, or clothing.
√ There is no good quality courses.


The Advantages Of Thematic-Interest Based Learning In Art And Craft

thematic interest based learning
Art and craft are simple works, as simple as making thing that you want to. The hardest part happen when we want to imitate someone else work. Say you want to make a hat that is similar with the hat that was made by knitting expert, but your expertise in knitting is beginner level, you will have to work so very hard to make the hat.
For beginners artist and crafter, I suggest you to do it just for fun, fun, and fun! Yes you have to mastering the skill, but do it in step by step, do not ambitious or you’ll get depressed and therefore art and craft not become fun activities anymore.


When I Need To Know About His Feeling

when I Need To Know About His Feeling
Living in a very new place, left our homeland for a long time, is never easy. Especially if you go to a place that have so much differences than your origin. There are few things that make our family unhappy with our new place, but there are things that make us happy. Far away from our parents and grandparent, our cats, and our friends are things that makes us unhappy. Togetherness of the new adventures, knowing different places and cultures, and for my husband it is about working in a different circumstances, those are things that makes us happy.

How do you keep your child’s learning portfolio?
Do I have to keep my child’s portfolio if we’re unschooling?
My house is small, I don’t have room to keep portfolio papers and binders, what’s the solution?
Those three questions were frequently asked by parents to me as a homeschool consultant. Keeping learning portfolio is important no matter what your conditions. Whether you unschooling or your house is small, it shouldn’t prevent you from keeping your child’s learning portfolio.


Frugal Or Not Frugal

frugal or not
As a way of living, frugal living is a choice. But today, most of us choose to be frugal, just because we can save our money. But frugal living is more than saving money. Its about creativity to utilize everything around us to manage our needs.
As a homeschool family in a remote area, we have to be frugal. If not, we can’t have learning materials. We have to be creative in managing everything around us to be learning materials.
