Welcome to the December 12, 2012 edition of a homeschooling carnival.
Olivia Lewis presents 10 Signs Your Child is Addicted to Texting posted at Nanny News Network, saying, “Instant messaging, Twitter and unlimited texting on many cell phone plans have led to a texting craze among today’s youth. Kids will commonly communicate by texting instead of speaking, even when sitting next to each other on the couch. This texting phenomenon is something that is becoming an increasingly large concern to some parents.”
Janet Golovine presents 5 Books that Explain Cancer to Kids posted at Become A Nanny, saying, “Tackling tough subjects like cancer with a child is one of the hardest parts of being a parent. How do you explain something that you’re having difficulty coming to grips with yourself? When it comes time to talk about cancer with your children, especially if the disease strikes your own home and family, you need all of the support and resources you can muster. That’s where this next list of books comes in.”
Shelby Martin presents 11 Handprint Holiday Crafts posted at GoNannies.com Blog, saying, “Tis the season of gift giving! This year, rather than taking the kids out to the stores to find gifts for family members, why not have your children make gifts for their grandparents, aunts and uncles instead? Crafts made from prints of your child’s hands, feet, and even thumbs are treasured keepsakes that are held onto and brought out years later when the children are grown.”
Susan Kilbride presents Free Colonial America Activities! posted at Funtastic Unit Studies! Home, saying, “Author Susan Kilbride is giving away two free units of colonial activities to go along with the first two chapter books in her “Our America” series.”
