The Homeschool Rule of Six

Mary is running a blogging Homeschool Carnival - The Rule of Six.

It is based on
Lissa's thoughts on "Our Rule of Six: Six Things to Include in Your Child's Day".

Hmm. Six things to include in each day.

I have thought about our days, our best homeschooling days.

On reflection, these are the things we include most days and that I think we should include every day, here in our homeschool.

St Anthony's Academy ~ promoting excellence in home education.

Rule of Six ~ Things to include in Our Homeschool, Every Day ~

  • Love
  • Laughter
  • Prayer
  • Talk
  • Music
  • Things to do and books to read
P.S. We named our homeschool back in 1997, when Greg needed a school report for a tax file number ( don't ask!). I wrote a report of his homeschool work. We came up with the name because of our family's devotion to St Anthony - and Gerry and all the boys have Anthony in their names! We added the motto to make the report look more professional - and now it has stuck. I use the name and motto on any "official" documents.

My dh's confirmation name is Anthony - and our family prays daily to St. Anthony!


I like your list, too...

Super, Maria - I love our connections.

My morning prayers are prayers to St Anthony, from a little prayerbook. And we have a weekly Tuesday night St Anthony Mass in our Franciscan parish.

BTW, what would your list be? :-)

I have to say...my list would be the same as yours! LOL!

Ah - simple is best, huh? :-)

Have you read some of the other rules, from Mary's blog? Some very thoughtful rules - I live seeing both the similarities and the differences.
