4H

4H is a nationwide youth development program for ages 5-18.  While most people picture livestock or agriculture, 4H offers many project areas from citizenship to photography, clothing & textiles to cooking, and much more. 

 

In addition to other 4-H clubs in Alcorn County's program, EAGLE 4H began in 2006 as an extension of the opportunities available through EAGLE Homeschool Association.  Eagle's meeting topics rotate to meet the needs and interests of our members; however, we place emphasis on community service, leadership development, and helping our youth gain confidence and skills while fostering a love for serving and working well with others.  Youth ages 14-18 have the opportunity to attend a three day event at Mississippi State in the spring where they compete in contests, attend various workshops, and have some fun along the way.  Visitors are always welcome at our meetings which are normally held the fourth Tuesday of the month at 4:00 at the Alcorn County Extension Center.

This is the overall state homeschool association for Mississippi. They keep up with information and state legislation that are pertinent to homeschooling. They host a spring conference and curriculum fair, a capitol day, and a fall retreat. The site has other helpful pages that would benefit beginning homeschool families. www.mhea.net

Teach Them Diligently Conference

 Teach Them Diligently holds very large conferences in a few large cities. Every spring, one of them is held at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville. You may attend classes on a wide variety of topics and visit the vast exhibit hall of curriculum and other vendors. Sometimes, a few EAGLE moms travel together to this conference. www.teachthemdiligently.com

Online Resources

Here's just a few online resources that some EAGLE moms find helpful:

  • Homeschool Legal Defense Assocation (HSLDA) "Through the years, HSLDA’s primary goal has remained the same—to bring together a large number of homeschooling families so that each can have a low-cost method of obtaining quality legal defense. Today, HSLDA gives tens of thousands of families the freedom to homeschool without having to face legal threats alone. Through many families sticking together, we have been able to keep the cost of a year’s membership close to the rate that a family would have to pay for an hour of an attorney’s time almost anywhere else. "
  • The Homeschool Foundation
  • Answers in Genesis Apologetics ministry especially regarding creation, evolution, and science. They have the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter near Cincinnati which some EAGLE families have visited.
  • Cathy Duffy Reviews: Curriculum reviews. Also guides parents in choosing curriculum based on both the teacher's and student's needs.
  • Homeschooling With Dyslexia
  • All About Learning Press: Articles for teaching multi-sensory learners and those with learning challenges.
  • iXL and many other sites use online activities to reinforce grade level material.
