This Week's Link-Up!
Being creative can be something crafty or it can be something unique with your own hands on approach to teaching your children. Share it here! Let's put our creative genius together and inspire others to reach beyond the pencil at times! My goal isn't fun -but rather, to encourage our children to become life long learners and see the joy in learning because that is FUN! So mark your blogging calendars and plan to stop by each week and LINK-UP!
NEW! If you aren't a blogger - no problem! You can still link up your fantastic creations by using your Flickr, Photobucket or other online photo sharing account. Just post your photo's URL from the account, by clicking on the "you are next - click here" button below! It can just be a cool picture of something your family made or a dress up your child did! We'd love to see (you can ignore the "blogger rules" below if you don't own a blog and aren't posting from it). If you aren't technical and still want to share a photo or video - you can e-mail me to submit via email@example.com. Can't wait to see!
Link Up Rules:
Link Up Rules:
- Link directly to that post using the URL, not the blog in general.
- Appropriate posts are things such as: educational crafts, experiments, fine art creations, unique field trips, posts on teaching creatively various subject matter, education themed dress up or re-enactments, dioramas or projects.
- State your post topic in the link description and pick a relevant thumb nail so your blog topic can be easily identified by viewers - DO NOT post links to your general blog name. Use the specific URL for that post you are wanting to share*.
- Please place the Wonderful Wednesday's button below, somewhere on your blog's webpage.
- Try to visit at least one link to show some blogger love and support to others.
I am looking forward to seeing what you all are creating out there! I would love to see any link ups that were inspired by a Wonderful Wednesday idea too - copy cats are very welcome!!!

Wonderful Wednesdays each week or by following the Solagratiamom Teaching Plan. So it begs the question....do educational projects or crafts or videos detract from, or enhance, a classical education? I think if the parent understands what the classical model is and puts everything in the right perspective, it should enhance, not detract from, their child's education. Let's simplify and look at the basic areas of study for a classically Christian educated child in the grammar stage:
- Bible Study
- Math (operations, word problems, everyday math use, math in art form, graphing & more)
- Latin study
- Reading (Bible, poetry, anthologies, picture books, readers in advancing levels to chapter books)
- Writing (learning to form letters correctly and transition to copy work)
- Recitation (reciting out loud things such as catechism, math facts, poetry, Bible verses etc.)
- Repetition (to gain factual knowledge of key content areas for later study and learning - we use the Classical Conversation's® Curriculum Guide)

Welcome to Week #5 of the Wonderful Wednesday's Link-Up! I'm opening this Link-Up to anyone who is creatively teaching their children the various subjects, including fine arts. If you're new to Solagratiamom: the purpose of this Link-Up is to showcase how other families have creatively brought their lessons to life for their kids! If you are a classically educating family -all the better! All curriculum users are welcome, though! Creativity is what counts - teaching subjects in a creative way!
