Welcome to Homeschool Freedom Fridays!

Homeschool Freedom Friday takeaways
Here are the resources referred to in the video:
This is book #5 in the “Conversation Starters” series by Jed Jurchenko, who also blogs at CoffeeshopConversations.com.
As mentioned, below are a few ice breakers pulled from the book. Try them out, and then pick up a copy of the book for more!
- Finish this sentence: “The best part about being me is…”
- Complete this sentence: “Something difficult about being me is…”
- What is something that brought you joy this week?
- What is one thing that happened this week that was frustrating or annoying? (Even small frustrations count.)
- If you could pick a famous person to mentor you for a day−such as a well-known athlete, musician, artist, writer, etc,−who would you choose, and what would you ask them to teach you?
- Your house is on fire! Fortunately, your family and pets are safe. Unfortunately, you only have time to grab three personal belongings before scrambling outside. What will you take with you?
