Recipes for kids abroad. Homeschool and Afterschooling for kids at home.

FOOD!!! Yes, I need pictures! My recipes need pictures around them to identify instead of just a title. They are tweaked to work for us in terms of ease, ingredients frequently on hand, real or pure ingredients(for the most part), our family taste, and usually SOY-FREE or easily adapted to be SOY-FREE. SOY-FREE tagged recipes still mean you have to know what ingredients you are putting in are truly SOY-FREE and even if is was SOY-FREE in the past, you have to check it each time you buy it. Ingredients change frequently and can even be different from store to store or expiration date to expiration date for the same product. Homeschool and Afterschooling notes and ideas are here too. I'll probably separater the blog later, but for now, this is the place for family and friends to look. Time Impaired Living has many definitions that I may update as time goes on or doesn't. To begin with, I'll say that Time Impaired includes time lost because of the schedule of a wonderfully dynamic family. It also includes the nonexistent sense of time when disability kicks in.
To see or print the recipes, Mouse over the image and you can enlarge the recipe. You can also enlarge it a second time.

Vivaldi Study Unit for Kids

Yes... We love Vivaldi! In teaching our children about art, artists, musicians, composers, and music, we have come up with units to help us with this.  I may post other units here or start a separate school blog.

First read "I, Vivaldi" ISBN 978-0-8028-5318-9

Next Listen to "Vivaldi, Ring of Mystery" by Classical Kids

Tour Venice on Youtube.  Preview the videos that are posted.

Go to mapquest type sites and look at arial images of Venice including the Island of the Dead.  This gives great context of what Venice is and was.

Use Nadene's awesome site and scroll down on the two following links to Vivaldi to use as a research start. Have kids do supervised web searches and look at local library for additional materials.  They need to do some of the finding.

Although the Composer Timeline from Cincinnati Public Radio is brief on information, it is a decent timeline to have the children see where a musician was in time context of other musicians.

Listen to Vivaldi station on Pandora or to other recordings and have the kids fill out a  couple music appreciation log sheets from Nadene's practical pages after a week or two of listening and being familiar with Vivaldi's music.
