Curriculum and Corporate Training

CJ and the Webmom
There is one question we get asked more than others.

Whether we are out running errands during the day or participating in a trail ride, someone always asks:

How do you do it?

How do you pick curriculum? How do you make your home more like a school? How do you teach your child if you aren’t a certified teacher?

Trust us, you DO NOT want to get the Webmom started. It’s like she’s thinking/reading/writing something the size of War and Peace! =)

Thankfully, she kept it short this time, just under 4 minutes. Although she got stuck trying to describe a “normal” school in a home. =)

If you have any questions you’d like us to answer, send them to us through our Contact page.

Have fun and stay safe,
CJ and the Webmom

 

 

 

Ocean Exploration With Dr. Ballard

CJ and the Webmom
As part of our homeschool work today, we participated in a live Q & A session presented by the JASON Project on the science behind tsunamis.

JASON, of course, was founded by Dr. Robert Ballard. THE Dr. Robert Ballard. Explorer extraordinaire and discoverer of many things – including the Titanic.

The JASON Project connects students with scientists and researchers in real- and near-real time, virtually and physically, to provide mentored, authentic and enriching science learning experiences.

Did you know that one year of NASA funding can run JASON for 1,600 years? Yes, really!

Check out what else Dr. Robert Ballard has to say about the Earth’s resources and ocean exploration:

 

 

The Webgran asked for a re-play and CJ actually scared the Webmom after watching this. He started clapping so loud! =)

Have fun and stay safe,
CJ and the Webmom
