Field Trip Ride Sharing

Let's use this group to connect with each other for field trip opportunities. I know that I could really use some transportation help to support my daughter's learning, and I'd be happy to share the transportation costs, cost of entrance fees (group rates are cheaper!!)etc.

Currently, I'm trying to find rides to Boston and I'd prefer to not have to take the bus or train down. Whether a day trip or overnight, or for a few days, I'm willing to work out whatever is necessary to accommodate the trip.  At least one trip this year would be--for us--dedicated solely to visiting the Marina, followed up by Fanuel(sp?) Hall for dinner, of course. There are plenty of museums to fill a day, most of which are free to the public.

Online Resources

We've been using KhanAcademy.com for a lot of core academic work (particularly math and science). Since I simply don't have the kind of income needed to buy a curriculum I need to create one. The challenge, of course, is keeping in line with expectations for age/grade levels. With KhanAcademy, I am assured that my daughter is learning what is expected by the DoE, can go at her own pace, and that she has full mastery of the subject matter before she moves on to the next level. As a bonus, I'm using it to brush up on my own math skills --I always sucked at math, and once I managed to squeak through Algebra and fake my way through Geometry, I never took another math course (even in college!).
