“What children need is not new and better curricula but access to more and more of the real world; plenty of time and space to think over their experiences, and to use fantasy and play to make meaning out of them; and advice, road maps, guidebooks, to make it easier for them to get where they want to go (not where we think they ought to go), and to find out what they want to find out.” ~John Holt~ Teach Your Own
Homeschooling offers children the time and space they need to learn, grow and thrive. As we turned the clocks back this week-end, I thought of all the many hours we have enjoyed with our children over the years thanks to homeschooling. Below are a variety of posts that offer ideas and ways others are enjoying that precious family time.
