HejKatt Posted February 14, 2012 Share Posted February 14, 2012 I lurk on these boards a lot, and enjoy reading about the different activities - notebooking, models, outdoor nature study. Some of these are ideas I would never have come up with, so it's been wonderful to glean from the collective wisdom. What baffles me is that I never seem to quite incorporate any lasting change. Learning at our house consists of: 1. Check the schedule to see which of the 3Rs we are working on 2. Pick up the corresponding text/materials 3. Work a chapter (or longer if DS begs for more - rare :glare:), while juggling DD who wants to be held, or wants me to read a book. 4. Repeat to end of schedule, then set DS off to play while I read to/play with DD. It works - I'm happy with the progress made by my DS. But in the meantime, I look at all the beautiful timelines, notebooks, nature study collections and wonder if I'm depriving my dc. Do I need to let go of some "school-at-home" paradigm? If the child is learning, how do you decide to add or change/mix things up? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
