________________________________ LETTER FROM THE EDITOR __________
by deborah resnick

As the summer flies by, most of us are beginning the task of looking
ahead to the next year of homeschooling. We think about how we did
things last year, and swear that we're going to do much better this
year. I know that I look back and see all the mistakes I made and few
of the successes. My message to everyone this month is to take a
little time (now is good!) and put down on paper all the great things
you did last year. Put down all the "wow" moments, the field trips,
the things your child(ren) discovered on their own. Make sure you
include the things you learned, too.

Some things I did right last year was to take my son on three trips
to the Indiana Children's Discovery Museum, read to him every night,
and had him read to me. I learned that education is happening all the
time, usually when you least expect it. I learned that Micah's
schedule is not dictated by my needs, and that it's easier for me to
adjust my schedule than spend twice as much time making him conform
to it. Much more learning happens when Micah is engaged and not
fighting with me.

Most of all, I learned that no one learns in a vacuum. Although it
may seem that we're alone, and the only one's going through
something, there are always others who share our concerns and our
ideas. Look for opportunities to learn outside of the box this school
year, and make this year one of the best yet.

Debbie, do you actually understand why "no where else on earth can
anyone come and have a chance to dream and attain that dream like
here in the United States?" Do you understand that our Founding
Fathers understood that our "rights" - Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit
of Happiness - we have came from "Nature's God, The Creator" and that
they were "unalienable" - can't be taken away by man or any civil
government? Wiccans, Druids, Atheists, and Muslims don't understand
this and therefore don't have the religious or moral understanding to
defend our rights against man and government who would seek to take
these rights away.

I think you need to look at the Declaration of Independence - read it
line by line - and maybe you will begin to understand how important
the God of the Bible was to the Founding Fathers and to the people at
the time. Do some research into the matter for your sake and the sake
of your homeschooled children. One place to start may be the God and
Government series by Gary Demarr. Maybe then you may appreciate that
Wiccans, Druids, Atheists, Jews, and Christian can all be thankful
for the Christian roots of our Founding Fathers and colonists who
based our government on the laws, precepts, and principles laid out
in the Bible including the freedom to worship or not worship as they

Subject: Porn Spammers on Some Indiana E-lists

To the Mod Squad of the IndianaHomeschoolers list:

Just a quick note to voice my appreciation for the swift actions you
guys took to prevent the recent round of particularly ugly spam from
reaching this list. The mere fact that not one shred of spam got
through is a real tribute to how much you guys care about this list
and its members.

Spammers are incredibly devious and it's not easy to stay a step
ahead of them. I for one am grateful to belong to a list who's
moderators are aware of such problems and handle them with
professionalism and diligence.

Thank you, Mod Squad and keep up the great work!

Why not take a moment and let us know how YOU think we're doing?

[Today I'd like to share an essay by one of our own IHEN Web Project
Volunteers, Tracey Rollison. Thanks, Tracey, for a wonderful peek
into your fun life as a Hoosier Homeschooler! -jc]

THE TRUTH ABOUT KIDS: Sometimes it's easier to find than your keys

I have a friend who, in her business, says, "Share with anyone who
suspects kids might exist." After yesterday, I know I'm either
infested with kids or poltergeists!

I actually had a pretty busy day one day this week, dog days of
summer notwithstanding. The kids didn't want to stop "school" for the
summer; they are perpetually curious and not helping them learn would
be a punishment from their standpoint. At one point I was
multi-tasking and doing laundry while on the phone with a friend. The
kids weren't being too quiet, so I thought I was safe.

Just before we were to leave to go meet my husband for an evening
get-together with friends, Alec, 6, ran up to me and said urgently, "I
accidentally locked the door to the bathroom and my shoes are in

I said, "You can wear your sandals," and went to get my keys from the

No keys.

I asked Bella, 4, who'd donned a satin dress and was carrying a
sequined purse, and was drawing on her knees with body glitter, "Have
you seen my keys?"

She said, "Alec got something out of the car."

So I called him, and he said, "Oh, yeah. I had to get my trick ink."

After a lot of questioning, during which he claimed sanctuary at St.
Poor Memory, he said he thought he'd brought them in the kitchen. So
he was sent beneath the table to hunt. He failed to find them, so I
checked the car to see if he'd locked them in, and noticed something
rubber sticking out of the trunk. I asked him if he'd been in the
trunk, and, yes he had.

Luckily, our new car came with lockout service.

So while we were waiting for the guy to arrive, I took the knob off the
door to get into the bathroom, only to discover Alec's shoes weren't
in there. We sat down on the couch and read several chapters of a
book together, if only to keep them from taking the knob off the door

The lockout service guy popped the lock quickly, and yes, my keys and
Alec's shoes were BOTH in the trunk. The strange thing I'd seen was
the rubber strap of a scuba mask, which *somehow* had gotten tied
multiple times around the internal safety handle of the trunk. Alec
can't tie yet.

Although the guy got into the car quickly, he couldn't remove the
tool he'd used. After about an hour of trying, he took the door panel
partway off to discover the speaker wire was tangled in the tool. I
got bolt cutters from the neighbor, but it was too small (ours was
even smaller).

For another hour, this guy had his arm inside the partially-removed
panel. The kids watched closely (too closely) and asked us both
dozens of questions, literally. After a string of questions relating
to the weather and electricity, Bella asked, "Does lightening move
through metal?"


She responded, "Well, what does air move through?"

"Uh, well...."

The guy laughed out loud, then said, "It's more a matter of what
holds air down to the earth!"

In that last hour, the poor guy got sprinkled on in the poor light
from the overcast evening; our dog got out of the house and headed
for the car, jumping on his stomach to get in the open car door; and
at one point he sat up quickly as Bella danced, twirling, a little
too close to him and socked him in the eye with the back of her hand.
And just as he finally got his tool out -- two hours after arriving --
the clouds opened and it downpoured. We both got soaked as he filled
out his paperwork and I signed it.

And all through it, he was a nice guy! No kids, not an uncle, is
happy in his job (but if all calls had been like mine, might not be.)

I think he suspects kids exist, though. ;-)

_________________________ HOOSIER HOMESCHOOLERS ON-LINE __________
by jessica radtke


It is estimated that anywhere from 50 to 85% (depending on the
source) of the words used in school books, library books and other
reading material for children are listed in the Dolch Basic Sight
Vocabulary of 220 words. The Dolch words, also known as sight words,
are primarily "service words" (pronouns, adjectives, adverbs,
prepositions, conjunctions, and verbs) which cannot be learned
through the use of pictures. (There is a separate list of the 95 most
frequently used nouns as well.) Many of the Dolch words do not follow
the usual phonetics rules and therefore cannot be sounded out. They
must be recognized at a glance in order for a child to read swiftly
and with confidence. For the basic Dolch word list see

You may notice if you go looking for the Dolch word list that it can
be found in different forms. Some sources will list the Dolch words
in alphabetical order while others list them by order of frequency.
Other sources have lists that are divided into "grade levels" (pre-K
through third grade). The "pre-primer" (or pre-K) list is the group
of words with the overall highest frequency -- a, and, the, go, I,
you, etc.

The following site has an overall frequency list (not broken down by
"grade level") as used in one school. This particular school focuses
on just 6-7 words per week for the school year in order to learn the
whole 220 word list.

This next site, on the other hand, has a list that shows not only the
words listed by "grade level" but also broken down into easy to read
words (kindergarten skill level) and more difficult words. I chose to
provide a link to this list as opposed to one that simply gives the
Dolch list broken down into "grade levels" because I think this list
best illustrates the fact that the "grade level" assigned to any
given Dolch word doesn't necessarily mean that that word is easily
readable at that skill level. The "grade level" simply indicates that
those words were found most frequently in books intended for that
grade level and higher and were found less frequently in books
intended for lower grade levels.

The Dolch word list is the most commonly used list of this type, but
it is not the only one. Because the Dolch word list was comprised in
1936, some educators consider it outdated and instead use a newer
list, known as the Fry list (aka the "instant sight word" list). It
is made up of 300 words. A PDF version of the Fry list is available
at the following site:

The following page is on the importance of Dolch words. It has a
short list of common children's books and the percentage of Dolch
words included in those books.

of Dolch words they can recognize:

A passage using all 220 of the Dolch words:

With 2 million students home-schooled nationwide and 100,000 in

Do regulations need to be put in place for Idaho home-schoolers? It's

Palm Beach Post: Home-schoolers prepare for school year
How does a parent prepare her children for the start of the school
year when they aren't going back to school? For the 2,800 parents who
have recently registered with the district their intentions to educate
their children at home, there are a handful of upcoming events and
meetings aimed at helping them answer that question.

The Salt Lake Tribune: Davis to help home schools 
Here's a twist: A Utah school district is ready to test a program to
help parents who want to home-school their kids. And the Davis School

not have enough spots to meet the demand.

planets movements in the month of August and September. Check this

the IndianaHomeschoolers e-list. There were no links provided but I'm
sure this will give a teate of what you'll find on the link Rick

This may be of interest if you are planning astronomy studies this
upcoming year. Here is, literally, a once in a lifetime opportunity
to see the RED PLANET closer than anyone you know!

Never again in your lifetime will the Red Planet be so spectacular.
This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars, an encounter
that will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets
in recorded history. The next time Mars may come this close is in

Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on Mars and perturbs its orbit,
astronomers can only be certain that Mars has not come this close to
Earth in the last 5,000 years but it may be as long as 60,000 years.
The encounter will culminate on August 27th when Mars comes to within
34,649,589 miles and will be (next to the moon) the brightest object
in the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9 and will appear
25.11 arc seconds wide. At a modest 75-power magnification Mars will
look as large as the full moon to he naked eye.

Mars will be easy to spot. At the beginning of August, Mars will rise
in the east at 10 p.m. and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m. But by
the end of August when the two planets are closest, Mars will rise at
nightfall and reach its highest point in the sky at 12:30 a.m.

That's pretty convenient when it comes to seeing something that no
human has seen in recorded history.

So mark your calendar at the beginning of August to see Mars grow
progressively brighter and brighter throughout the month.

Share with your children and grandchildren. No one alive today will
ever see this again.

_______________________________________________ IN-SITE __________
by benjamin bennett web project site editor


CURRENT SITE NEWS: You may not have heard that the
IndianaHomeschoolers Discussion List was hit several times last month
with e-mail posts that looked innocent at first, but after closer
reading, were actually pornographic in nature and included links to
porn sites. They were written by people who subscribed to the various
lists, who then sent the post(s) and unsubscribed.

Oh... you DIDN'T see any of those on the IndianaHomeschoolers List?
Well you're not crazy. You're right. You didn't see any porn spams on
IndianaHomeschoolers, because your list managers -- Deb Harbeson
(alias Batman) and myself (alias Robin) -- saw this trend in spam
attacks coming, and took precautions in advance to make sure that you
(or your kids) didn't get a free pass to pornville through your
favorite Hoosier homeschooling e-list. :-)

Many other lists (not just YahooGroups and not just Indiana
homeschooling lists) weren't so fortunate.

Am I tooting our horn a little here? Mmmmmmmaybe. I get a kick out of
thwarting spammers; what can I say? But the bigger issue here is that
we want you to be proud of being a part of this "virtual community."
We also want you to feel safe, knowing that there are real people --
and Hoosiers t'boot! -- involved in managing this e-list community,
not just monitoring, or worse, mother-henning it to death. We try to
strike a balance that makes this a useful public forum for as many
people as possible. In order to do that, we end up tolerating many
things and many ideas and perspectives. But pornographic or
deliberate spamming get nowhere in this community.

I hope we can keep that kind of garbage in the background for good.

"WHERE WE ARE" UPDATE: If you read this space last month, we were all
finding out where everyone on the IndianaHomeschoolers list was from.
To bring some perspective to those threads, we created a page on the Resources directory that illustrated the reach of the
IndianaHomeschoolers statewide e-list (based on the people who posted
their county of residence.)

Check it out and see if your county is listed. There is also a link
to add YOUR name or comment to the page. It was great to hear from
people from all over the state. It humbled many of the Web Project
Volunteers to know how far we're reaching, and how much we're Helping
