This weekend if you can’t make it to the NUG annual family camping trip , you might want to scoot on up to Johnsburg and get your hands on some amazing used curriculum or maybe visit the free open house that follows and check out the extensive homeschoolers library. Yours truly will be there with a big pile of stuff you’ll want to add to your resources at home.

This is a copy of the flyer:

and much more!

2:15 – 4:00 p.m., The Cure for the Math Curse with Kathy Wentz
Math, the subject most of us freak out about the fastest. How can we ensure our children LOVE
math and are good at it when we don’t like it ourselves? Learn how to break the mold of math
anxiety by breaking the bad teaching habits that create it, and learn new ways of approaching
math to replace the old fear-inducing habits. (Note: Because of its length, the workshop packet
for this is distributed as a .pdf file sent directly to your computer unless requested
This event is FREE.
Children are, of course, invited to attend but we do not have room for child care and any
noise must be kept to a minimum.
To reserve a space (free!) to sell at the used curriculum flea market please contact
Karen Doane at k.doane@sbcglobal.net
