After planning a trip months in advance for a local homeschool group and wondering if the price might deter some from attending, I am so glad it turned out to be a hit!
The day started with the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Education program which was led by an awesome educator who kept the kids engaged. They were given an interactive presentation, hands on activities and we ALL enjoyed some awesome water demos in the wind tunnel. There was a short intro on what to expect from our 1 minute flight time.
We were given a short fly once inside the tunnel then the instructor gently guided us up for our 30 second high fly. Included in the price was the education program, hands on demos, and one minute regular fly and high fly. The kids all left with a smile on their face and a cool little swagbag with a few goodies inside from iFly.
It was a very cool experience. If you’re interested in doing this activity with a group you will need a minimum number of participants. It was a fun event and we are glad to have had the chance to try it out!!
Taking a break from outdoor riding for the month of February is a good idea for most people, right?
We like to lay low during this month, hibernate and look forward to Spring coming. We did not ever guess there would be days approaching 70 degrees in February!
So after a month hiatus, and itching to get back to her lessons, wouldn’t you know that upon returning today we bundled back up with our winter gear, because yes it is STILL Winter although last weeks temps would say otherwise.
After riding in snow, rain and bitter cold… you know that it is something you love.
Both my kids found their passions around age 9. For my son it was, (and still is) baseball. My daughter found horseback riding and has immersed herself into learning as much as she can.
After searching for a riding facility that was not an hour drive and didn’t break my bank every week, we found an awesome family run Equestrian Center.
Rolling Coach Stables in Ivyland, PA. (near Warminster) is an excellent place to receive lessons. They offer horseback riding lessons for beginner to advanced riders. Cori Reich is their resident trainer who has over 20 years of experience. She keeps the riders focused and offers constant support while they are in the ring. She is patient when teaching about tacking and untacking the horse and is always willing to answer any questions her students may have.
So if you have been considering riding, this might be a good fit for you and your family too!.
Did you see what happened today???? THE SUN WAS SEEN!!!!
It has felt like forever since we had a glimpse of the sun, let alone feel its warmth.
So needless to say I was beyond happy to spend the day in our favorite classroom, the woods.
After a very informative presentation on Owls and an even more engaging pellet dissection where the kids were able to take a look at what tasty treat was enjoyed last by a particular owl. We had the pleasure of enjoying this absolutely perfect sunny day hiking along the paths of PennyPack. Although muddy from all the rain we have had, it was a walk full of interesting stops to glimpse at different sights along the way. The final destination was a spot which was scoped out earlier by Pete who works at the center, he was able to locate an owl for us to observe.
Taking turns glimpsing through his viewer, we were all able to look at this peaceful bird in its undisturbed setting. Although he knew we were there appreciating his beauty, he seemed to not be bothered at all.
Homeschool events are held at this location. There are links below for more information.
Through her extensive teaching and years of experience, Dayle has made quite an impact on her students. We hope you enjoy this post from her. Please be sure to connect with her for more information on private and group lessons.
Studies have proven over and over again that music lessons are one of the greatest gifts you can give to you children! Science shows that children who learn to play an instrument, even for just a few years, reap many of the following, wonderful benefits. They are better in reading/math and overall academically They are better able to focus They have more self-esteem and play better with others They score higher in standardized test scores They have more creativity To read more about the incredible benefits of music lessons please take a look at this article https://mic.com/articles/108022/science-just-discovered-something-amazing-about-what-childhood-piano-lessons-did-to-you#.nwR8TzO3R
At Dayle Music, we believe that learning to play an instrument should always be fun! We use games, songs, stickers, and a prize reward system that keeps our young students excited and motivated. Children as young as four can start with private lessons or join a small group class. Our small group class is currently located at Newtown Parks and Recreation (new locations coming in the fall!) For more information on the group class “Piano Fun for Kids” please contact Newtown Parks and Rec at (215)968-2800 x239 or go to their website https://newtownfun.com/info/activities/program_details.aspx?ProgramID=29935
Sometimes opportunities are presented and we can use them to teach and become involved with what is happening.
Such is the situation happening at Standing Rock . Short of actually heading to North Dakota, we have found ways to be part of this historic event that is unfolding . Through efforts of coming together and making others aware of what The Water Protectors are there doing, to getting together care packages we have been helping to share the information that is unfolding.
This is not an issue that has emerged overnight, this has been happening for many years in fact. If you would like to get involved, there are many sites to gain further information. Some that I can attest to are :
Learning about Van Gogh at The Uncorked Artist in Peddler’s Village is always more fun when shared with about 25 other homeschoolers!
That is just what we did on Monday, this informative and fun art class with be offered at an affordable rate of $20 per child once a month. Be sure to check out the website for more information on when the next class will be happening. Sign up early as space is limited!
Continuing with painting, because one can never paint enough……..
Paint in the Moment http://www.paintinthemoment.com/ also offers classes at The Lord’s New Church in Bryn Athyn. Recently held was a wonderful class that started with a calming, focused meditation that allowed us all to quiet our minds and open our hearts. The result, these beautiful paintings.
Offerings include: painting, needle felting, clay creations, photography, music lessons, dance, yoga and more!
To wind down our creativity, we had the opportunity to create beautiful Terrariums at Greenology Organic Living. Also located in Peddler’s Village, the kids were able to learn about these creations and then make their very own. https://greenologyorganics.com/
My daughter also learned the joy of needle felting with Lori Odher. She offered a two-week class at Homegrown @ The Lord’s New Church in Bryn Athyn. Lori also offers classes in sewing, felting, and quilting. You can contact Lori @ 215-840-9279
Although there are some planetariums that are closer, the staff at this location included some of the most homeschool friendly people we’ve met on a trip. They engaged the kids from start to finish and allowed them to ask any questions they had. They offered humor and a lightness to the program which kept the kids engaged the whole time.
My daughter left with a smile on her face and was so happy that we had arrived an hour early ( by accident). Because of my error with the start time, we were able to chat with the staff and check out all the fun activities they had to offer while waiting.
They have a great program for summer as well as an array of offerings for homeschoolers. They really cater to the homeschool community which is was so nice to see.
Although it was a bit far; it was a full day and well worth it.
Be sure to contact Amanda if you would like to set up a tour for your family or homeschool group.
