Homeschool Humor ~ Friday Funnies

Kailee and Caitlyn wearing balloon hats from Margaritaville in Las Vegas!




How does a homeschooler change a lightbulb?

First, mom checks three books on electricity out of the library, then the kids make models of light bulbs, read a biography of Thomas Edison and do a skit based on his life.

Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with dipping their own candles.

Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs as well as prices and figure out how much change they'll get if they buy two bulbs for $1.99 and pay with a five dollar bill.

On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Abraham Lincoln, as his picture is on the five dollar bill.

Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed.

And there is light.

What do you call it when a homeschooling mom talks to herself?

A parent-teacher conference!

I am so laughing at this! So true, so true! My kids are all adults now, but I homeschooled for many years and now they're homeschooling.

What a great lesson. I love the parent-teacher conference. So what can we call ourselves when we talk to ourselves and we are not homeschooling?
