Violet is fascinated by linguistics — which languages are related to each other, how they traveled around (we just finished reading about Samuel Champlain and French colonies in Canada), why they die out. Another question — why don’t we have English accents anymore?
I would love to give her some independent reading on this — any thoughts? Seen any great shows on PBS or Discovery?
I might attempt a college textbook, since if she doesn’t get every nuance, who cares, but I’d love to find something designed to be more engaging to start with. The textbook could follow up if she is truly fascinated.
By the way, the carnival of homeschooling will be up tomorrow! Thanks much to all who have contributed — you still have a few more hours . . .
