How Does That Work???

The 2011-2012 school year is off to a great start! I have had many encouraging conversations with parents about exciting things going on in your home schools. As always, my hat it off to each of you for the great jobs you do in educating your children!

As you know, the theme for this year's enrichment in the Atlantic Home School Assistance Program is How Does That Work?, and I found myself asking that very question over and over as I was trying to make a change to my blog. You will notice a new feature. The HSAP schedule is now to the right of the latest blog entry. I have decided to embrace technology and am now using Google Calendar to keep track of my schedule. Thanks to a patient (and much younger) friend, I finally got it figured out!

The first thing we will be trying to "figure out" in enrichment is the wonderful human body! Staring with the brain and nervous system and moving on to the circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system, muscles, bones and skin, we are off on an anatomy adventure! I hope to make real world connections in our learning to think about how experts in the field would use this information. Who knows, we may be educating future doctors, nurses, medical specialists, researchers and physical therapists!

Hope you are off to a great start this year, and as always, let me know how I can help!
