DSCF0008According to the special days in January list, January 8th is Joygerm Day!  I’ve caught it (once again) and plan on trying my very best to make sure my family catches this germ and continues to spread it.  It’s my understanding that the joygerm is highly contagious!  You don’t even have to be in a physical setting to give it to someone else.  It can be spread through a phone, computer, or a letter.  You know, not all germs are bad, some are wonderful!

Below are some of the study links we’ll be following as our homeschooling special days lessons.  Learning together today is going to be great!

For Bible Study and Journaling

Many “joy” Bible quotes to choose from any version of choice  (just type in “joy” in the search bar)  http://www.biblegateway.com/

Famous quotes about joy  http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/keywords/joy.html

For Science:

Happiness:  Contagious as the Flu is a good article explaining the science of joy  http://www.livescience.com/3110-happiness-contagious-flu.html

For “Socialization” (because we home educators have to get that included) the assignment is simple….”be intentional about spreading joy to others”.

I hope that you, dear reader, get infected with the Joygerm as well (if you haven’t been exposed to it yet) and contaminate many others!
