Hi, I found this site very useful indeed and as I am a huge fan of thecolor.com, I would like to introduce this online coloring website for everyone interested. this site is unique in which anyone can use this site as there is no java, flash or applet applications necessary to load pages. This is a great place for kids to learn more color conceptualization, apply eye-hand coordination and picture comprehension skills are promoted. I hope this will be a useful site for all.

I belong to a yahoo group that is discussing the Connections Academy and the pending legislation to make the online school available in Texas.
Some times we get links , but this time this person listed all these. Some are way to religious for my taste, but for those of you who are interested... here they are...

"Welcome to Living Math Forum! This is an on-topic list dedicated to the discussion of "living math" - mathematics education incorporating living books and materials with or without traditional curricula as the primary learning tool. Discussion applies to mathematics learning from birth to adult self education, with the understanding that arithmetic is only one feature of mathematics as a whole. Math and science history topics apply as well.
Educators using Patricia Kenschaft, Frank Smith, Charlotte Mason, Thomas Jefferson Ed / relaxed classical, Ruth Beechick, Montessori, Waldorf, "eclectic" and unschooling philosophies and methods may benefit from the exchange of ideas.
Members pass on articles, links and resources that might be of interest to home educators, tutors, and classroom educators interested in resources beyond curriculum.
From the site: "Insisting a child must be taught solely traditional, scope-and-sequence arithmetic to learn mathematics is like saying one must learn classical note reading and scales before one can learn music. You might get there, but you miss out on the inspiration of beautiful music created by the masters along the way. We need not master all the "basics" before being able to experience the appreciation that carries us through the hard work of learning. Think of applying living math principles as developing a 'mathematical ear' while working toward the mastery of basic theory.""

"The important thing is that IvyGate and I crush the homeschoolers."
"And seriously, we do need to beat the cr*p out of those homeschool freaks."
So let's show some homeschooler pride and beat these guys! You can vote once every 24 hours from each computer. Right now, Spunky has pulled back from being more than a thousand votes down to a few votes in the lead thanks to much effort from homeschooled bloggers, but supporters of Penn State professor Michael Berube have been sending out mass emails to try and bring their blog back into the lead before voting closes tomorrow. We need every vote possible in these last few hours to give Spunky the recognition she deserves.
So please, Vote Here and then pass this message along to everyone you know. Spunky is counting on you!

This is a great piece which explores socialisation and homeschooling vs mainstream schooling
