Teacher Swap Day and Missouri Geography

I have been homeschooling for seven years. Three years ago, I had an epiphany...schedule a teacher work day once a month! I used to regularly schedule one work day a month when I was a Speech-Language Pathologist in the public schools. Why am I not doing this now as a homeschool teacher?! (This is when I smacked my forehead and said, "I should've had a V8!") On teacher work days, I can take care of appointments, make lesson plans, calculate hours, register for field trips, put library books on hold, fill out birthday/anniversary cards, etc...

Access Your World with MCPL

As a busy homeschool teacher and parent, I am constantly trying to find ways to maximize our time…especially when we are in the car driving to fieldtrips, library events, or sports. It is amazing how many hours you can accrue doing “car-schooling.” I wanted to share a fun literature unit idea that should fit with any curricula or age group you teach…all available at your local Mid-Continent Public Library branch!
