So, You Want to Play College Ball?
Christopher J. Klicka
Good news for homeschoolers who want to receive NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) scholarships and participate in college sports! Homeschoolers have finally been recognized as high school graduates by the NCAA. Homeschool students no longer have to go through the “waiver process,” but can now register in the same manner as “traditionally schooled” graduates.
Learning Hebrew
The La-am website was created by a team living in Israel. The learning games of the La-am website teach Hebrew reading and writing since these are two of the subjects learnt in first grade in Israel. However, one can learn far more Hebrew from the La-am website, because Hebrew is also used for math and for "everyday life" too. Therefore, while playing on the Hebrew site, both at the math and the other learning games, you will be learning lots of Hebrew!
