Free Online CurrClick Live Open House
I've mentioned CurrClick several times. I love the resources they offer homeschoolers. I've gotten many free lessons/units from their site. CurrClick has tons of various curriculum/units available for sale. They also offer live classes and clubs.
Next week, CurrClick is hosting CurrClick Live, a great free online opportunity to learn about the online live classes and clubs operated by CurrClick. You can meet the teachers, find out what classes will be taught and what clubs there will be, and hear some homeschooling tips from various keynote speakers. It takes place online, January 7th and 8th in the evenings.
Last year, we signed up my oldest son for the free Magic Treehouse Club at CurrClick. He absolutely loved participating in a club with other students who enjoyed (or at least were reading) the same books as him. The teacher/facilitator spent time going through each chapter of the book, asked multiple choice questions the kids could answer, and also introduced extra information about the topic of each particular book (like specific dinosaurs for when they read Dinosaurs Before Dark). She also sent out a list of materials to prepare for a craft/activity they could do with her online (making dino impressions in homemade playdough). Cedric looked forward to the hour-long club meeting every week with great excitement.
This is just one type of club/class offered on CurrClick. Some are free, like the Lego Club and the American Girl Club. There's even a Chess Club! The rest of the classes have various fees. Some are semester-long, while others run for shorter periods of time.
If you're looking to supplement your homeschooling, head on over to the CurrClick Live Open House and sign up to learn all about the online classes and other info. It's free, so there's nothing to lose but a little bit of your time. (Though I hope you won't think it to be a waste of time!)
