My son had to do something with my laptop the other day, and complained that “mom, you have too many tabs open!” Since I had almost 50 open I thought it was about time for me to share them with you. So here’s the summer edition browser tabs. Close up those tabs and yet have a way to remember them! 🙂
Did you know the Knowledge House has a whole list of possible high school courses? What a fantastic list to look through to see what intrigues our students. Wouldn’t it give a great way to pursue their interests?
Tree of Life has this logic course that I have been considering. I just wish the lad had room in his schedule for everything I’d like to see him do.
Captivating Compass posted about the top 10 high school electives.
I like looking through lists of free resources for homeschooling. This one from Table Life had a couple I hadn’t heard of before.
I keep being intrigued by Hebrew classes. I have yet to sign up for them, but I am intrigued none-the-less.
Communications101 from Powerline Productions I wonder about getting for the lad. He doesn’t have room for it in his schedule this year.
The Career and Technical courses in Acellus high school courses I am curious about, but wonder about them because they are US-based, and I wonder how they would transmit to Canadian regulations.
I’m working on a college and careers half-credit course for the lad and consider options such as on this page. I haven’t really explored the seven options listed, but wanted to remember them for later use.
I’ve been considering this art appreciation course for grade 11 for the lad next year. Keeping his options open as he’s not sure what his future holds.
Beyond Personal Finance I am suspecting more and more is a needed course for my lad. He forgets that $5 earned for 20 minutes work is a good investment of time, particularly if it’s something you were going to do anyways. It’s not worth my time though…. so I think about making him pay some of his own bills….. 🙂

I need to remember these Algebra and Geometry helpers for the lad.
Sometimes as I am browsing the internet I come across interesting things I want to follow up on. For instance I’ve run across these items.
- Walnut-sized octopus.
- Barrel-eyed fish.
- Sourdough Starter. I keep meaning to do this.
- I really enjoy curiosity stream, so I wonder about doing great courses.
- Free Reference binders. I like this idea. Need to do something with it yet. Just haven’t quite figured it.
Stuff Just for Me
Alison. I’ve finished my carpentry course, so I’ve decided to move on to an architecture course. It’s rather interesting looking at buildings from of old and learning more about how they were built.
Though this technically isn’t JUST for me, I’ve been having fun with some the experiements/labs on the ChemCollective. I’m wondering if they might stimulate my lad’s interest.
Ever want to visit the Sistine Chapel? How about this virtual one?
Need some books to read? Check out the Open Library. You’ll need an account but it’s free, so worth looking through. I’ve borrowed the book thief and a couple of others over time.
I’ve been browsing through My Teaching Library. There’s a review coming, so far we’ve done some poetry, and I’m looking into the French cooking book! Expand my repertoire a bit!
