One of the reasons I love homeschooling is because we can keep on learning through play. Educational “experts” have all pretty much finally conceded that small children learn best through play and they’re starting to let preschoolers have some of the fun they’re hard-wired to crave, but they’re still leaving older kids in the cold. After kindergarten at the latest, it’s time to sit down, be quiet and get to work.
Children learn so much better when they are allowed to enjoy themselves. Heck, we all do. And one of the things I love about homeschooling is that we can keep this wonderful thing called learning fun.
We even plan goofy meals to learn math. 🙂
I love homeschooling for so many reasons, but one of the biggest is because it really is so often fun. The kids like it, but so do I.
They want to learn, because they’re allowed to enjoy themselves doing it. I love to teach them, because after all of these years it still doesn’t feel like work.
Laundry, on the other hand…. that, I still can’t manage to make fun. Suggestions? 😉
