Book Review: Homeschooling for the Smart, Energetic, and Easily Bored

What? Hanging upside down over the back of the couch isn't how you learn?

What? Hopping through the house is not how most people enter the dining room to eat?

What? Bouncing and twirling aimlessly is not how you walk to the car, unaware of other vehicles on a parking lot?

What? wiggling and turning somersaults is not how most people do math?

Active, practical, hands-on homeschooling help is something any mother of an ADHD, gifted, or wiggly child rapidly devour. I have one child who learns best while in motion, so this book caught my interest when the author asked me to review it in exchange for my honest opinion.

Currently available on Kindle Amazon for $2.99

The book offers helpful tips, from the author's personal experience.  It includes tons of links to learning sites which offer curriculum she has personally found to work and hold the interest of her active and gifted children. Being a veteran homeschooler, I was surprised that some of these links were actually new to me.  

Of course, I immediately found each of these links, went to their webistes, and liked their fan pages on Facebook.

The best thing I liked about this book, other than the fact that it is written in a manner that makes you feel like the author is right there with you, in your corner, inspiring you not to quit - Is that it is broken down into chapters based upon subject.  She ends up covering all of the four core subjects of Science, Social Studies, Math, and English as well as PE.

PE is something my family has to work at - Probably because we're exhausted at the end of the day after chasing after said active, always-in-motion child.
