Teaching Materials Practicum
Tuesday, July 31, 6:30 – 9:00 pm

Here is a hands-on opportunity to look through different teaching materials, see how different publishers present material, look at the various helps available to teaching parents, and compare educational philosophies as they filter down to the textbook or curriculum guide level.  Join Penny Ross (30 year homeschool veteran) for a “guided tour” through different home education resources.  Limited seating; register early.  $15/person if you register by July 20; $22/person afterward.

Nurturing Academic Readiness Skills

Monday, August 13, 7:00 – 8:30 pm

In today’s rush to early academics, what is being missed?  Are there readiness skills that are being overlooked and underdeveloped as we push younger and younger children into worksheets and classroom learning?  Does early education have to look like “school”? How can we encourage play, nurture curiosity, and let our children enjoy their early years while still laying a solid foundation for future education?  Limited seating; register early.  $12/person if you register by July 31, $15/person afterward.

Penny Ross, Homeschool Speaker
 
What workshops would you like to see offered in upcoming months? 
We can schedule a date with 4 firm commitments, so let us know if you’d like to attend any workshop listed on our “Classes” page.   Most workshops can be presented from either a Christian or a nonsectarian worldview.  Please specify your preference.
 
Unless otherwise noted, all workshops are held at 25202 Crenshaw Blvd., Torrance, CA, in the 2nd floor conference room.

 

Please arrange childcare for your little ones (although nursing babies are welcome).   Our conference room is too small to comfortably accommodate children and they may not be left unattended in the waiting area.

 

Penny Ross is the speaker for the workshops listed above. She homeschooled her own 3 children, served in local homeschool leadership for over  30 years, and now serves as a homeschool consultant and used curriculum proprietor at Tools for the Home Educator in Torrance, CA.  Additionally, she has spoken at the CHEA Annual Convention, CHEA  Bay Area Convention, CHN Expo, and for many homeschool groups throughout Southern California.

 

 
 
 
 
 

 “Penny Ross has been an incredible resource to me as a student through my entire 12 years of homeschooling. She was an essential part of my success as a student and was instrumental in helping create a homeschool plan to get my family through each and every school year. She consistently went above and beyond to help me achieve my goals and dreams.”                                                   —- Sam
