Activity Days for Homeschool Groups and Families Review and Giveaway

If you are a support group leader for homeschoolers or just a homeschooling family, you will love Activity Days for Homeschool Groups and Families by Marcia Washburn.  This 168 page book is full of ideas to have "activity days" for your family's homeschool or your homeschool group.  I do not run a support group, but I love having this amazing resource for our family.

This book is divided into four sections.  Section A: Introduction to Activity Days explains what an activity day is, why we should offer activity days, and tells you how to get organized.  Section B: Ideas for Activity Days is full of great ideas for activity days that won’t wear you out with planning.  Section C:  Ideas for Long-Term Activity Days, has ideas for activities that can be year-long such as geography classes, Bible quizzing, and performing groups.  Section D: Resources is a detailed section of books, magazines, and other resources to assist you with your activity days.

Activity Days for Homeschool Groups and Families has detailed supply lists, instructions, safety considerations, tips for success, pitfalls to avoid, getting others involved, and so much more.  It covers everything from doing dissections to playing the soprano recorder, Valentine's Day to organizing track meets, and even includes full size patterns and handouts.  What is really nice about this resource is that it comes hole-punched and with two nice, sturdy cover sheets to go in a binder.
