Since we were studying the earth's layers on a Monday, we had a layers of the earth treat for FHE. Half an oreo (crust, mantle) with chocolate sauce (outer core), and m&m (inner core). The kids loved it.
Hello! I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom of six children (ages 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, and six months). In my previous existence I taught school--primarily history and English, but also ESL, and, during one bizarre year, math. I started teaching in a middle school where I discovered the hilarity of seventh graders and then later I moved to a high school and taught tenth and eleventh graders. I eventually switched again to the Education Department at Weber State University where I taught several ESL courses and a social studies methods course for elementary teachers. Writing curriculum is one of my passions. Sharing good books is another. Homeschooling--with all the frustration, fulfillment, frolic, and farce that it engenders--is another.
