Public Group: The We Are Worldschoolers Community welcome all who are interested in learning from the world combining experiential learning and cultural exchange. We are more than just a “travel group” OR an “education/homeschool group”. We are a community, whose origins span the globe, representing different nationalities, belief systems, cultures and worldviews. We are a community of learners and adventurers, families of all sizes, people of all ages.
Private Group: We love homeschooling with technology! Homeschoolers are the best resource for each other about what works and what doesn’t! Please join us and share your own wealth of knowledge!
A group set up for parents who are now homeschooling. This page has lot of teachers on it who I’m sure will answer any questions you may have. This is a place for support, not a place for individual teachers to share their schools plans. Your child’s school should be sending out guidance and in fact your first point of contact should be your child’s school.
*20 Questions: One person picks a secret word and the others have to ask yes/no answers and figure it out before they use up the 20 questions
*Read My Lips: One person silently says a single word and everyone tries to guess what it is. Write down the guesses and accumulate points for correct answers.
*Would you Rather: Give two ridiculous scenarios and guess what the others would choose between the two. Gather points for each correct answer.
*Storyteller Pass Along: Each person gets one minute to continue the story
*2 Truths & 1 Lie: Tell 3 statements about yourself and see if others can guess which is the lie.
*Last letter: Pick a category and each successive answer begins with the last letter of the previous answer (animals: bird, dog, goat, tortoise)
*Say the Same Thing: Each team says a single word with the goal of saying the same word. Say you start with “sausage” and “home” so the next word needs to relate to both. Maybe they both say “shop” (because a sausage would live in a shop). Game over. But maybe on round 2 one team says “shop” and the other says “fridge”…then for the 3rd word you’ll need to relate both the “shop + fridge”.
*True or False: make a statement and others get points for correctly guessing if it’s T or F
*Movie Lines: Quote a movie and have the others guess which one.
*Boggle (need letter cubes or Scrabble/ Bananagram tiles): Pick 12 letters and see who can make the most original words using only those letters within a 30-60 seconds of time
*Going on a Picnic: Memory game where each person adds an item in alphabetical order but repeats all the previous answers: I’m going on a picnic and I’m going to bring an apple, the next person says I’m bringing an apple and butter, etc
*Battleship on paper: Make a grid A-J and 1-10. Boats are 2, 3, 3, 4 and 5 units long. Use colored markers to mark a hit/miss
