Our Homeschool Room 2014-15
Our homeschool room doesn’t look a lot different this year than it did last year or the year before. We still have a lot of books. Probably too many, if I’m honest. And we use them. We do read alouds, and the girls have curriculum resources they work from most days. But the more we homeschool, and the more I learn about how children (especially those with special needs) learn, the less our homeschool has become about being “school at home” and the more it has become a lifestyle of learning that we all enjoy together.
So, while a lot of our learning happens at home, it doesn’t all happen in our school room. Some of it happens in the den:
Some of the learning we do happens in a friend’s backyard:
Sometimes we learn during a field trip to the zoo,
Or a state park,
Or a national park.
Sometimes our learning occurs through technology instead of books.
Sometimes it happens in waiting rooms.
Sometimes it happens while playing board games (or teaching a pumpkin to play a game).
Sometimes it happens during therapy.
Sometimes learning happens at museums (we especially like the ones with hands-on science activities!).
Sometimes it happens at the kitchen table.
Sometimes learning happens while participating in charity events.
Sometimes we learn during homeschool co-op classes.
Sometimes we learn while making hats for a local homeless ministry.
Sometimes learning takes place on mission trips.
Sometimes learning takes place on the road, traveling to and from homeschool conventions.
Some learning takes place at the fair on the educational day they host for kids every year.
Most days you’ll find us at home, our noses in the books, and quite possibly in our homeschool room. But if we’re not there, you can be assured we’re still learning . . . somewhere!
