Yo Yo Day!

Can you yo-yo?
I sadly, cannot.
We have many..Princess
loves them.
Here are some teacher plans for using yo yos
to teach kids from Duncan Yo Yos
I believe they are aimed at children in grade 6,
but I thought some of you with older children
might find them useful.
I'm going to print them out for the future
since Princess and Farmer Dad both enjoy them.
If your children are still in the preschool set
(like mine), maybe this
picture to color or this would be more fun.
We are going to read Richard Egielski's Slim and Jim today.
For those of you who don't like yo yos, maybe
you will enjoy this link Yo Yo Ma.
Princess and I are especially fond of the Silk Road Project
I can only hope that if your yo yo unravels today
you can get it back under control while having some fun
along the way!

Ami actually has a yo-yo that comes back to her. The therpaist was using it in therapy, not sure for what skills, but they sell them at Target.

Thanks M., we'll have to look next time we're there.
K- I bet your boys are old enough for some of the cool lessons they provide
on the site!
Be sure to let us know how it goes!

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
