Homeschool – Round and Square

20120917-075136.jpg

One thing that I like about child led homeschooling is that you can pick up where you left off from the weekend – tie it into the school day and forget about what you had previously planned. (screw those nursery rhymes for the day)

The girls had pulled these vintage children’s books off the shelves for Sunday story time and there was no way I could just put them back without continuing on. There are boundless lessons in each little book – and they’re ridiculously adorable.

I imagine we’ll read the entire series today & then do a craft with shapes. It’s not totally out of the question that the girls themselves will think of their own craft to do & if so, that makes mama happy as we’ve hit the bullseye of child led learning.

It’s always fun to see what arises ~

    I am a huge fan of round and square lessons. Lately, when I go into schools to teach dance and music and tell 5 and 6 year olds to make a circle, they mostly line up with a few lingering on the sides, making a great square. Then we ask, “boys and girls, is a circle round or square?” Inevitably, a sweet little voice will pipe up, “square” and everyone else will echo that first voice. Square!
