New Resources

This week I have added two new features to my sidebar that I wanted to point out to you as I think they will be of some use to other KONOS users as well as many others in the homeschooling blogosphere.  Both are resources to help with individual study topics. 

To start, I will be listing my current unit of study in the sidebar with a brief listing of useful resources I find as our units develop.  So this will be an everchanging space.  Right now I just have a couple links for our Africa study. 

Just below this, you will see a link to a squidoo lens page which is not mine at all but belongs to a fellow KONOS mom.  I am really excited about this new resource.  Shannon has created quite a variety of lenses for the units she has already completed.  In her lenses you will find lesson plans with tons of links and book lists and projects to do with the kids, all revolving around a particular unit of study.  She has lenses on everything from American history to science to Scripture memory music.  To be honest, I don't think there is enough time in the world to go through everything she has put into this project of hers but if you take it slow, you'll be all right.  Start by looking for a subject you are about to study and just focus on that lens.  And then be sure to leave Shannon a comment so she knows her lenses were useful to you.

What a great collection of lenses! Jimmie has quite a collection, too. I'll be adding her to my Squidoo favoirites. Keep warm under all this snow!
