It is Friday Meme time again at The Heart of the Matter. This weeks Meme is: Your Favorite Homeschool Product. Below are some of my favorite things I use/need for homeschooling.
My Laptop and the Internet. I don't know how I could do what I do with homeschooling with out either. Love e-books, making notebook pages or lapbook pages, chatting with other homeschoolers all over the world, and more.
With the love of my laptop comes my treasured item: 1,000 copy punch card at the UPS Store . I couldn't live without this... Honestly, I am there at least once a week making my copies for a notebooking project, lapbooking project, or other needed copies to do activities with the kids. Of course I use my printer for smaller printing jobs, but when I need multiple copies of 1 page (for lapbooks and other larger printing projects), this is a MUST have for me. I need I also use a separate one for my co-op classes. Copies are only 3.5 cents ($35 for the punch card), it eliminates wear and tear on my printer, and I can always swing by Java Joint for a coconut Latte while I am out. That is a BIG bonus! *Ü* (sorry no pictures because they keep it there at the store so I won't loose it. LOL )
While reading other homeschoolers lists of their favorite products, I have to agree, our wipe off board is a must. I wish I had a bigger one, but we don't have room for it here.
My cubbie corner. It holds my laptop (but can be easily moved to the table), has some "core" items I use underneath it, and my storage caddie is right next to it. In here I have pens, pencils, markers, highlighters, stapler, hole punch, scissors, pencil sharpener, tape, magazines, educational cds, audio we use for learning, and so much more. I don't have to get up and search for anything (well unless the kids removed something w/o permission that is *Ü* ). I couldn't imagine not having this wonderful tool by me.
