Perhaps it is the company I keep, or the great big flashing beacon screaming, “WE HOMESCHOOL! IT IS AWESOME!!” But for one reason or another, homeschooling is certainly surrounding me as the hot topic right now.
I’ve gotta say … I love it.
Whether you homeschool already, you are considering homeschooling, you might think about it down the road, or even if you are not considering homeschooling but have little ones, I have a great resource for you today.
I created another mini eBook, and again I want you to have it for free. This one is all about every day learning activities. I am talking about activities found naturally within a day that are completely FULL of learning. They emerge entirely on their own, we just need to slow down to see them.
This mini eBook is called, 20 Deep Learning Activities found in Everyday Life.
As I was writing Kindergarten at Home , I kept mentioning little things we can do throughout a typical day with our little ones outside of structured, planned activities that are loaded with natural learning.
Things that we already do every week, when we slow down to include our little ones, that will provide them with SO many learning opportunities.
Let’s look at something as simple as making a grocery list. This is of course full of literacy learning. It can also be full of sorting (by aisle/department or by food group). We can also introduce the idea of price rounding so we can get an approximate running total of our groceries. We can set a budget that we need to stick to, working on some big math concepts. We can add in some flyers or coupons, developing both literacy and numeracy at once. I mean, once you stop to really think about a task you can see SO MANY opportunities for learning!
Now you might be thinking – my goodness, this would take half a day!! Yes, it definitely could. But think about that day. Your child would be immersed in huge learning, real life learning, right beside you. Simply because you took the time to slow down and allow your child into your world. Now we move right into that connection parenting and we are building relationships.
Pretty remarkable, right??
