We will do yearbooks a little differently this year.
  1. First, it is open to ALL homeschoolers, not just our group- members will get first preference though.  
  2. Second, parents will not need to purchase a yearbook for your family, you will receive one free yearbook with the completion of the sponsor sheet.  Even if all you get is $5.00 sponsors from family, friends or businesses, if you get 8 of them you will get your yearbook FREE.  
  3. If your sponsors are not technically savvy to create an ad no problem!  I can do that for them with NO extra charge.  I want this to be something that ALL the kids will feel proud of.  
Please reserve your child's spot if you would like to be apart of the yearbook by clicking here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1RwDKbH4JqFIZdbRzLmVi1p4pMedfFBy_NGQM5--p7_E/viewform?usp=send_form

Encourage Reading and Writing

Reading is so important for our children.  As your child starts reading, consider keeping a reading log.  This helps in three ways.

First, this helps with documentation for yourself to remind yourself of which books your child read or did not read.

Second, if you let them use this worksheet https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0rXTqFiCfXRUk5zYUFxWS1Ccmc/edit?usp=sharing , they can practice their handwriting.

Third, they are going to want to finish up the page and start a new one so this encourages even more reading.

Here are the reading logs I use.

Teacher Supply Event for Cobb County is Tuesday, Sept 30

The next Teacher Supply Event for Cobb County is Tuesday, Sept 30 from 5-6 pm.
For more info, please visit the website at www.cobbk12.org/teacherssupplystore.
Marta went to the one in August, and got a lot of good, free, teacher supply items - perfect
for home school!

I am not sure if I will be able to make it or not, but I wanted to make sure that you all had access
to this info for the next one.

Also, if you have any questions regarding Letter of Intent or DOE home schooling questions, then callMr. Blenke at 404-463-1765 or email him at ablenke@doe.k12.ga.us. He was very helpful when I emailed him to email me a copy of my Letter of Intent that I could not seem to print from my computer.
