Thought you might get a kick out of this #reallife snapshot. My 6 year old had an invention yesterday. Since we home educate, it is my responsibility to support him on his self-directed learning journey.
.

These boys have both been sick with neverending colds and mama was getting sick of them wiping their noses on their sleeves. My 6 year old had a solution.
.
So I encouraged him to create his TWENTY TEENY TINY T-SHIRT TISSUES, and helped him make his commercial 😊
.
Wait for Beau's reaction at the end!

“Teaching is not about answering questions but about raising questions – opening doors for them in places that they could not imagine.” ~ Yawar Baig

We are starting to really notice the beauty in the education we have chosen for our kids. Child led learning, unschooling, hack schooling, free range learning... whatever you want to call it. Basically a lot of freedom to discover who they really are.
This morning Atlas woke with a vomit bug and that led to some great questions from him about where the food came from and what exactly was happening in the body? He's becoming so inquisitive with the age appropriate "why?" and that's leading to some pretty awesome moments of learning.
Over an hour they went through photos and a few videos about all the complexities of the human body and the more he learnt the more the questions came.. because he was leading the way with what he wanted to learn. The function of the digestive system ended with "what about our eyes???" Until he decided. Ok that's enough and went off to play with his toys taking along with him at 3 years old all this amazing science to download and think about with no pressure to remember any of it. I bet he does though. It's the information children collect.
Recently he's been fascinated with making paper aeroplanes. So he YouTubes videos of people making them and asks Ryan to sit down with him and help him fold the paper correctly. Leading the way the whole time. It literally blows my mind the lust and joy for learning, and the random pathways in which his minds likes to travel.
Are you also following this education path with your children? Would love to hear your stories and show others that there are more of us !
Feeling inspired 🙏🏼🌈 “If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.” ~ Alfie Kohn
“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” ~ William Butler Yeats
“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” ~ Albert Einstein
“Children have real understanding only of that which they invent themselves.” ~ Jean Piaget

“If I’m doing up bows all the way up, shouldnt we do down bows going down?” Lightly choking on my coffee, “Sure! Why not?” (Knowing full well how hard that is😂)
Child led scale practice always surprises me every day! If she doesnt approach it thinking it’s hard, it really changes the game so much!
And bonus happiness this morning - her school is taking the class to Symphony Hall to hear the San Francisco Symphony! So of course she picked out a Christmas dress🎅🏼💚❤️!! #violinbreakfast #violinist #scales #fundamentals #violinpedagogy #childledlearning #threeoctavescales #dmajor #upbowstaccato #bowtechnique #conservatorykids #tinyviolin #gagliano #practicediaries #100daysofpractice

The older kids preferred a lengthy craft. These guys? Short and sweet is what they're after. These little things went together so quickly and now they're mesmerized. And running around like crazies.

Yesterday we wrapped up schooling for a #holiday break. Their presentations on Ancient Egypt were out of this world. I love learning from my kids. ❤️

This quote from Maria Montessori couldn’t have been more true for my heart and our school year. “The greatest success of a teacher is to be able to say “my students are now working as if I don’t exist.”

Once they chose topics, with the exception of some reading to Kaeleb, they worked diligently on their own to research and present. #blownaway .
Abby made a PowerPoint to tell us about the Suez Canal, it’s #history and benefit to the Egyptians. .
Emmalie made a working model of the Nile River Cataracts and presented in her Christmas nightgown because #homeschoolingrocks .
Claira presented on Egyptian Gods and Goddesses. She even included how and why they were worshipped. #lovedthis

Sadie~Ryan recreated a papyrus scroll to write her presentation on the Library of Alexandria on. #fascinating .
Kaeleb made his own Sahara Desert model and gave such a well thought out presentation on where it’s located, the climate and the wildlife that live there. 🐫 .

What is a part and I wonder if the masons gave us the Mason jar name.. ? Learning how to reduce and double an herbal blend this morning. Math & logic, life skills, health, movement, and history in a short impactful project. #lifelearning #wholesomelearning #childledleaderinspired #projectbasedlearning #childledlearning

We had such an amazing time at our Christmas presentation. Our parents even sang carols with us!

Interfere less and let the children play.
If we feed children everything on a plate, if we curate and dictate everything they do, when do they get the chance to explore, experiment and learn for themselves? .

My “little” helper, sleeping on the job. These kits are coming out nicely though, even without Maggie’s help, and they’re fun to make. 😊 #lessonsandlearningforlittles #childledlearning

Am I the last person in the world to realise you can make pom poms on a fork? In, like, 3 minutes?? No more cutting out cardboard circles for the kids! They are a very cute size, too - perfect for little garlands! They make for a good fine motor work out, too!

Unstructured play especially!👌🌻🌴

Color science! 🎨🔬She put strips of tissue paper onto a wet canvas bag and watched them bleed their colors onto the bag. Now she has a beautifully colored bag all for herself! 👏

I finally made fely folders for Anya's land, water and air cards. It's just better when her materials and her environment are organised and in order. .

My kids love Christmas...and they love books! It has been so much fun to merge those two interests into a countdown to Christmas...one book a day until Christmas. (Although let’s be honest, sometimes we get a bit carried away and open more than one.)

Our first attempt at microwaveable saltdough Chrimble decorations thanks to @rainydaymum and her simple recipe. They worked out a treat for a first timer and as our afternoon session children were brilliant and made loads, it means we have enough for everyone to decorate at least one next week with plenty of glitter and festive fanciness! #earlyyears #saltdough #christmas #childledlearning #childledlearningthroughplay

A new set of lovely bedtime stories as one of the Santa’s gifts for Ale. 🎄✨ These books are second hand and thus make a great sustainable gift. And the cost is only $3-$5 each, even though they are in great condition. You can get them through @thriftbooks along with many other wonderful series. Thank you @pacerj for telling me about it.

So this beautiful and magical snowfall happened one week ago today! Please come back again 😉❄️ we had so much fun playing in it, even though we lost power along with so many others, it was still the best!Family memories that will last a life time!

A lovely couple of Christmassy weeks in Little City! Elves building walls, Angels building towers, Spider-Man doing his shopping and Batman making sandwiches! 😍😍 Thank you to everyone who has visited so far, I’ve had so much fun and everyone has played so wonderfully.
Onwards with 2018 when we’ll be adding a petrol station and vets to the City! Hurrah!
Merry Christmas xx 😘

Exploring time today with the help of a sweet little fold out map in the back of a book depicting the same moment around the world on a certain day. I love that all at once and all together Miss 7 can learn about time zones and why the season change...while Miss 4 can explore telling time on a clock. Miss 7 read this book 4 times the first day we brought it home, the illustrations are beautiful ❤️ DM for my affiliated links.

We just love receiving great feedback, especially when it comes in a beautiful handmade Christmas Card 🎄

It's 16 days to Christmas and we are so excited!
Are you? 😁😁😁

A great example of mixed-age play today at the Flats. Even though there’s 3+ years difference between these two, there was a great amount of mutual respect they shared over this activity. The older boy independently invented a slingshot (I know, cool, right?) and used it several times, to the awe of all of us. Here, he shows the younger boy how it works. Personally, it’s a joy to sit back and watch older kids as they engage and teach others in the group... and it’s through the process of teaching that they deepen their own learning about the world. - Image by Mercedes from #FreeForestSchool of Austin, TX. #forestschool #naturepreschool #naturekids #adventureparenting #empoweredparents #emergentcurriculum #experientiallearning #environmentalstewardship #riskyplay #raisethemwild #unstructuredplay #unpluggedchildhood #optoutside #outdoorlearning #outdoorkids #naturebaby #letthembelittle #littleexplorers #mixedage #getoutside #generationoutdoorexplore #childledlearning

We're creating pom pom Christmas trees this afternoon. My daughter stumped me for a minute when she asked for 'a rainbow Christmas tree'. I thought it might initially be a protest against my strict rules around the ornaments we put on our actual Christmas tree (glass, silver and gold - I'm a little obsessed with it!). But no, apparently she wants a little rainbow tree for her My Little Ponies to play with. So: pom poms to the rescue again!

The slide made of concrete. Bring your cardboard and go for a ride. Both kids loved it.

Grateful for moments like these.

We ❤️ Loose Parts! Endless opportunities for play and learning 😀 This learning space is from our beautiful new Reggio Emilia inspired Centre Explorers Brighton East - opening Monday 8th January.

She was so happy to be on a dirt path. It didn’t matter the hike was really long. They loved it.
I don’t know the secret to a good hike yet. I’ve tried everything. I’ll keep trying. This one was pretty dangerous. Maybe that’s why they liked it. 😂

I do believe it’s time for another adventure🌲 #tbt #freeforestschool

Tubes and 🎄Christmas 🎄 baubles .
Ez absolutely loved this activity inspired by @happytoddlerplaytime . I found this activity on her page and modified it to be age appropriate for Ezra. Because Ez is still quite young I taped the tubes down so he could focus on putting the baubles on top of the tubes. For older children you don’t need to tape them down, as they are able to set the tubes up and put the baubles on themselves. .
This is awesome for hand-eye coordination and concentration, as children need to focus on a task. For preschoolers you can use it for counting the tubes and baubles. .
WHAT YOU NEED •Tubes •Kid safe baubles •Masking or Paint tape for younger children 👶🏻 .
🔷I also added small baubles for Ezra too drop down the tubes.

Made them do it. Before everything fell to pieces. #thecryhike #sofun
