I know there are several MATCH members that are involved in homeschool groups. This book is an awesome help to get more activities in your group and how to do it. I don’t believe I have ever seen so many activities listed in a book with all the helpful information that you will need to make it a success.
Marcia Washburn is one of our writers for Fireside Helps and she has done a wonderful job with this book! She first tells you all about what an Activity Day is and why your students need these days and how to organize them.
The next section is a list of ideas for Activity Days and exactly how to do them. A few of the days listed are:
- Character Lessons
- Exploring Your Senses
- Math Day
- Pioneer Crafts
There are 20 days covered in this section.
The third section is about Long-Term Activity Days. There are 8 different ones in this section. A couple of these days are:
- Bible Quizzing
- Special interest Groups
The last section of the book is a great resource help section. She has compiled places to get help for the different days and even has addresses and phone numbers.
This is a terrific book for anyone that is involved in homeschool groups or thinking about starting one. MATCH highly recommends this wonderful resource.
