I'm not exactly the go greener type.
I believe in recycling and making do with older stuff, like my ratty tennies that I wear until they fall off my feet--much to my wife's chagrin. I plant trees in my backyard and we grow squash quite successfully. But "going green" feels political, and I don't like politics. But care for this little blue ball on which we live? Save some money? Be good to others? Absolutely.
And that's why I'm so excited about one of my birthday presents from my wife: A titanium spork.
I got to use it for the first time today at lunch, and it works like a charm.
That's why I'm going to share with you how Sonlight is like my spork.
Just as I can now reuse my spork every day instead of getting out a new plastic one, every single Sonlight curriculum package is reusable with multiple children. Not only can you use Sonlight with multiple children in a single year, but you can also reuse the program years later with another child who wasn't ready for it when you first purchased it.
That's the beauty of Sonlight's Cores: You can reuse--and thereby recycle--your school materials. How do we do it?
Wonderful books, lesson plans, extra notes, a complete (yet flexible) schedule...
Perhaps it's time to trade in the plastic forks of education--worksheets--for the titanium sporks of Sonlight. And if you don't "go green" for yourself, think of the children! <smile>
