Parents and teachers: I pose this question and hope to generate conversation:
What should a child’s learning life at home look like?
Here is my answer! It should be joyful and filled with learning this is just right for your child:
Last night, Ariana and I went rogue with our learning life. We spent our small. precious amount of time at night gathering ideas for the book she wants to write: It’s going to be a story about a time when everything floated at our house. Her ideas sound poetic to me.
Floating things are silly.
Imagine that you’re floating up to the roof of your house
Or the sky.
Imagine touching the ceiling
Or the clouds.
It’s hard, right?
Or soft, isn’t it?
This is a learning life at home….
