I was looking at the OMSI's reserved labs list and they look great.<br>
$4 per student per lab. You need minimum of 12 kids.<br>
Anyone want to do this?<br><br>
My son is 6/1st grade. The kiddos have to be K-2nd grade or around that level for the classes.

Here are all of the <a href="http://omsi.edu/files/OMSI_TRG_08.pdf#page=8" target="_blank">reserved labs.</a> I thought the <a href="http://www.omsi.edu/teachers/fieldtrips/reservedlabs/chemlab.cfm" target="_blank">little chemists looks like fun.</a>

My dd is too old (she's 9) but I'd love to know about any other awesome homeschooling programs. This is our first year homeschooling and we're fairly new to PDX so I'm still looking for cool homeschooling sources.

If the class sounds fun to her I do not think the age matters really.<br>
Just if it is appropriate, make sense?

Bumping this in hopes that there is some more interest.<br>
Are the posters that posted on here still wanting to do this?

We take OMSI labs pretty regularly with other homeschoolers, they're posted on the HIP list or GPH. Have you guys joined those groups? GPH (Greater Portland Homeschoolers) is an announcement only list, HIP (Homeschoolers in Portland, and surrounding areas) list is a chat about anything home or unschool related for all ages group.<br><br>
HIP list: <a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HIP_list/" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HIP_list/</a><br><br>
GPH: <a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GPH/" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GPH/</a><br><br>
Mongoose, there are a few of us with plans in the works to get more preschool happenings going on around here. You are of course more than welcome to attend any of the park days held during the nice weather months all around the pdx area, all ages attend those. But as for planned activities for the younger set, there's not much out there. There's a brand new craft group for 1-5 yr olds that just began in Beaverton this month. See the HIP list for more about that...<br><br>
I have so many awesome ideas for the youngers, but I can't seem to create the time to implement them! I have access to the Beaverton community center, I keep *meaning* to plan a monthly event. Oy. You're helping put the fire under my butt though. There needs to be more for the youngers out there! People brand new to homeschooling aren't getting the IRL support they need IMO.<br><br>
No matter what though, you should come to your local park day this summer! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/treehugger.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Treehugger">:<br>
Anyway. I guess that's it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
BTW, I have a 17yo dd, and 3 boys, ages 10, 3, and one.

Aubrey- Thanks for the info! That would be really cool if you started something for preschoolers. It is really frustrating to figure stuff out when there is not much offered for kids this young. I am pretty much winging it. We had to start early with "schooly" type stuff because DD demanded it. I have not had anyone to bounce curriculum ideas off of except on chat boards like this. And then there is the lack of groups to get her involved in. We have a limited budget, so classes are kinda out for us (meaning like ballet and stuff that costs a lot). Anyway...I am babbling, but thanks for the info, I will def look into the craft thing you mentioned and the park days!
