Tell us a little about yourself. I have bright red hair, green eyes, used to be 5'6" before all the babies, adore my husband, and am an early morning person. My alarm rings at 3:30 am for my quiet time, then I write, sew, paint, or plan school!
What was your motivation behind this project? Spiders and Arachnids were written for Kelsey, our Bug Lady, or Lady Bug, to teach her a scientific and hands-on approach to studying these creepy-crawlies, rather than mere book- learning. Observations, flashcards, labs, information, questions and answer keys helped her learn well.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope we've done most of the work for you, and you can relax and enjoy learning with the children. I hope children will get excited learning about arachnids ... and the extra lessons we added on centipedes and millipedes.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I love Tasha Tudor and her lifestyle. I like unit studies because the children remember what they learned so much better and longer.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I hold a Bachelor of Science. Along with my husband Mark, I homeschooled our 8 children on our Gentlemans Farm in south Florida. Now we reside in Georgia. We began homeschooling around 1984 and have used a variety of teaching styles to teach the various subjects. Latching onto unit studies aided with teaching our multi-age group of children, and helped the children grasp and master the topics.
