Found this neat website to help add to our homeschool day: http://pbskids.org/newsflashfive/
There are several Top News Stories listed in a kid friendly format. Easy to use, my oldest son is listening and/or reading two stories a day and writing a short report. (If you know Lee, it is a very short report!) Still it will help broaden his awareness of what is going on in the world, without me worrying about censoring our local paper. Some actual headlines printed here should be R-rated for Violence!
Hope you enjoy this site too!
