Mary Beth begins the broadcast with tales from her recent visit to The City Museum.

Across the country, Mary Beth Goff, the Road Trip Teacher calls in from behind the wheel from a lesser known Crossroads of America in west central Indiana. These two are on a mission to encourage and inspire Roadschool Moms everywhere to receive each day as a gift; and, to keep eyes peeled for the next turn where education meets adventure. Hit the replay to hear more about this idea that will unsabatoge your homeschool and your life.

Roadschool from the Back Porch

Holly shares her love for nature from every facet of The Giles Frontier. She talks about a roadschool adventure not so long ago with the manatee in her homestate. Pictured left is a shot of her homeschool pack on a visit to Crystal River Preserve.  This week’s show intro is followed with Holly’s personal experience of how she began homeschooling. She reveals the challenges her family faced when oldest son Grayson had a stroke early in his life. What unfolds next is what led to the family’s homeschool journey.  This homeschool veteran gives many examples of how easy it is to embark on a learning lifestyle revival.

Roadschool from Behind the Wheel

Mary Beth reflects how the Road Trip Teacher was formed from her early homeschooling experiences on the road. She admits that mistakes were made by the dozen in her first years of school at home, an example she vehemently discourages against.  This homeschool mama reminds her homeschooling sisters to stay in their own lane. She encourages others to take a year or even two to find your groove. Stay out of your own way! That’s a sentiment that both Roadschool Moms wildly agree on. The team also touches on the labels of unchooling and eclectic learning styles. A brief talk about curriculum also is discussed.

Finally, each of these moms talk about a typical homeschool week from the back porch and behind the wheel. The Road Trip Teacher talks specifics about days of the week and how roadschool unfolds during different seasons of the family travel schedule. She gives examples of her kid’s resources including how Notgrass History is being used to gain four full credit for her high schooler. Holly elaborates on a week with her crew that includes the family lawn business, chores, and homeschool fundamentals.

Roadschool from Behind the Wheel

Mary Beth reflects on the past few years and the projects that Holly has already been an instrumental part of. She reminds listeners of the Blaze New Trails episode as well as the Morning Time by Nature show, both featuring Holly and The Giles Frontier. Last summer, MB took her roadschool crew on a quest to visit many of the Laura Ingalls Wilder historic sites in the Midwest in cooperation with Holly’s Prairie Life book club. The new RSM team is in agreement, God had a plan all along. He is never late, He is never early. God is always right on time.

Later in the episode, Mary Beth talks about her middle schooler’s recent educational detour. While her focus for this year’s rolling homeschool is on Notgrass History resources, the Road Trip Teacher admits that her 8th grader is on a wild ride learning adventure like no other. After a seemingly ordinary family fun day at Six Flags, her roadschooler is on a quest to learn anything and everything about roller coasters. Sound crazy? Listen for the details to see how this plays out.

Philosophy Adventure with Pat

philosophy adventure When I first saw this product  advertised I could not wait to get my hands on it.   I so hoped it would meet my expectations and it did!!!   Finding a curriculum that encourages students to think, discuss, study, and share is rare, but Philosophy Adventure fits the bill!  Why philosophy is an elective and not a mandated subject is beyond me!  Listen in as Stacy Farrell shares her motivation for creating this wonderful product that can be used either by an individual or in a classroom or co-op setting.  Of course I recommend you use it in a co-op setting in order to increase opportunities for discussion!  After all, homeschooling together is better!!
