Home Education Curation Collection. 14th February 2021

in Home Edders3 months ago

We went a bit quieter again this week, but I’m still going to use and update my list, even if it is little this time. This week Hive for interaction on posts in the HomeEdders community goes to:
• 4 Hive - @ryivhnn
• 1 Hive - @justinparke
• 1 Hive - @arrliinn
• 2 Hive - @tarot911



@tarot911 brings us some interesting insights on learning languages and mother tongues.

As home educators we don't tend to draw the line between parenting and educating. It's all part and parcel of our roles as parents. I love how @sumatranate brings parenting into the homeschooling topic quite regularly and this week he shares a little victory he had with one of his children on helping them to articulate when they are worried or stressed about something.

@itinerantph has been working on reading with his niece and shares how he used different ways to try and keep her engaged.

@taliakerch and her son have been getting creative making art work with soap bubbles. It's always fun to try new things.

@unschool covers 5 questions he gets asked about homeschooling. Have you ever been asked these questions? If so, how do you answer them and if not, what questions have you been asked about homeschooling?

Thank you for joining us. This curation was brought to you by @minismallholding and this week I have chosen @unschool to be a 10% beneficiary of this post, and have added in another beneficiary for @justinparke for the ongoing delegation support. Thank you!

Lovely to see @homeedders staying string through the turbulence of Covid. We're suddenly faced with university entrance requirements & the glories (and expenses!) of SAT tests and IElTS for young people wanting to go to international universities. It would be great to see/read about how home homeedders manage this transition - it's tough enough for Miss almost-17 who's been sitting formal exams since she was 5.


I would recommend getting a year or two of local community college under their belts before jumping to international universities. I started at a community college myself and it was such a good experience coming out of high school not the best student but loved learning. You get to have a feel for the flow of college at the community college and the cost of it is SO much lower than jumping straight to a big university. Some people can’t handle the college atmosphere or need to time to adjust. This was a good adjustment for me and I made deans list most semesters after my first two in school once I got better accustomed to it all. Just my two cents!

Nice idea but there is no such thing as a community college here where we live in Thailand. So it's stay here and work, travel or jump in the deep end.

I think this is one of those things which varies from country to country and even state to state. It would certainly be an interesting question to see answered, although many of the contributors here have younger children.

My eldest was able to do adult entry to uni via the STAT test once she turned 18, but that was for South Australia. For other states you have to be 21 before you can go that route. Otherwise you need a year 12 certificate and your results will dictate which courses you can get onto. If you don't have good enough results for the course you want, then you can start on another course and do the required units to change over after a year.

Admittedly, my girls have had some experience of tests from school and my own Miss 17 is currently doing her SACE via open access, so has had a couple of tests from this. This year she'll have to attend an actual exam at the college, though.

I suppose mock tests would be a way to start to familiarise homeschooled students with the feel of them if they want to head on to formal education.

Sorry, got distracted by Miss 17 with schoolwork questions.

I'm glad I'm part of a great community like yours. :)

I might be able to delegate some SP, how does it work?

I usually do it from my Peakd wallet. If you click on the symbol underneath your HP which looks like a head and shoulders, that brings up the option for delegating.


Just delegated 1000HP. Keep up the good work :)

Thank you. It's appreciated.
