Back-To-School Survival Kit

1. A mini first aid box is a must in this instance This box should have a few bandages, cotton swabs, some string, some gauze, a pair of scissors, a few tablets, etc.

2. There should be a fire starter that is included in the kit. Along with the fire starter, it is important that the kids learn how to start a fire with a knife or a metal match.

3. The technique of purifying water through the natural means should also be taught to them. The technique is to cut a bottle into half and puncture some holes in the bottom half. A layer of grass should be placed in this bottle. Above that layer, some sand and charcoal should be placed. This should again be covered with another layer of grass. Now the water that’s poured through it will be more or less purified.

4. It is a nice idea to add a dictionary that will be able to explain all the kinds of food which is edible.

5. A compass will help the child know in which direction to head for. For the child to be able to do that, he should be taught how to read a compass as well as a map.

6. A small fishing kit will help the little child fish for some food once in a while. You will have to find a small rock first. This small rock will then work as a piece of weight. One end to this rock and the other end will have safety pins.

7. Help teach the children how to make a small cat stove with the help of a can and a burner.

Time Management For High School Kids

Time management is as essential as having a concrete plan about what you want for your own life. It is significant that young ones like you already know about the essence of time management. After all, you are already a young adult and it is only proper that you begin setting things straight in your life. Get a glimpse of the following time management tips and help yourself achieve peace of mind.

Be organized at all times. At one point in time you would like to be able to spend extra time with your loved ones, friends, or even for yourself. But how will you successfully do such thing if your schedule is crowded up? You may just end up wailing out of depression. Being organized with your things, your responsibilities and appointments will save you half of the worry. If only you know when to attend to things, you will not be lacking time, running late, and ending up in misery.

Set an everyday goal. As you turn in every night, it will be best to visualize the things that you will have to accomplish for the next day. Setting up a must-be-done list will specifically do you good as it will help you meet your deadlines in attending to all of your tasks.

Learn to prioritize things. As you make your to-do lists, note which of them is of the greatest importance. You must attend to the things which rank as the most necessary. Just be sure that what you have in your list are all achievable.

Learn to do worthwhile things in your spare time. You may not know it at all but high school kids like you really have a lot of leisure times. Instead of hanging around the campus during break times, why not attend to your homework? By this, you lessen the loads of work that you will have to attend to in the nighttime.

Always find time. Don’t reason out that you have no time for this and that. If you only know how to organize your schedule, you will realize that there is always time for all your stuffs.

Jot down notes. Important discussions must be noted. Since your mind may not be able to accommodate so many reminders, it is important that you write down ideas. With this scheme, you are able to effectively memorize things as you study.

Get enough sleep. Of course there are a definite number of hours that growing kids like you need to devote for sleep. And basically, you cannot attend to your business for the next day if you feel groggy and all. Your concentration will be devoid of enough focus if you lack adequate time to sleep.

Maintain realistic goals. If your aims are nothing but out of this world, you will always end up frustrated and depressed, so to speak.

Providing Socialization

The Home Schooling parents comments to me are interesting because I agree with their socialization comments and think between AYSO, Boy Scouts Explorers, youth groups and other activities that the socialization issues can be solved.

Once, I met a gentleman while traveling in Boise, from a Scottsdale Corp, who builds indoor soccer buildings and he said that during the day they are empty and we discussed home schooler networks in the region getting together for socialization purposes. They now offer this with coaches, games and high tech machines to score, pass and help kids learn.

It seems that given the right push these things can be very affective and a good use of facilities. The socialization is an issue, but it is solvable and must be a part of growing up of course. Probably the biggest reason that this myth of socialization persists is because at one time it was true. But not anymore with large networks of home schooling parents getting together and sharing information.

Home schooling has come a long way in the past couple of decades and the Internet is propelling it even faster than ever before. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thank you for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.

Fall Activities

The autumn season is characterized by the change in weather to shorter days and cooler temperatures. This is an excellent time to teach children about the change of seasons and the earth’s movement and the solar system in general. You can purchase or create your own charts which show the movement of the earth in relation to the sun. As the earth rotates certain parts of the world receive more direct sunlight than others which explains the seasons. Homeschooling allows for flexibility so you can show your children the change in the sun’s intensity at sunset by making it a daily fall activity. Taking pictures of a particular spot and the change of the sun’s brightness is an interesting interactive way to engage your children in the fall season.

One of the best aspects of fall is the harvest season. The harvest season marks the period when the fruits of planted crops are collected from farmland. This would be the perfect time to take your homeschooled children on a field trip to a local farm. In most areas you can visit a farm during harvest time and get a complete tour. Most of the tours even offer the hayrides which your children are sure to enjoy. At a farm you will learn about the process of planting crops and then collecting them when the perfect time comes. If you are lucky you may even be able to see harvesting in action! Some farms even allow children to pick their own little pumpkins and corn to take home with them. Another great harvest time activity is taking your kids to the grocery store. The produce section is a perfect example of the fruits that the harvest can produce. Show your children the different varieties of apples, pears, squash and other foods that are specifically related to the fall harvest season.

There are a number of celebratory days throughout the fall season. Fall ushers in many religious holidays from the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to the Muslim holiday of Eid al Fitr which marks the end of the fasting period of Ramadan. This is a perfect time expand on your religious teachings if this is a focus of your home schooling. In addition, there are a number of patriotic days such as Columbus, Veterans and Election days. You can use these days as a chance to inform your children of the importance of patriotism and introduce them to government processes such as voting. If you enjoy Halloween in your household you can make it a fun event by learning about the roots of the All Hallows Eve day and creating your own costumes.
