Window on Our World
This is our first documentation panel! Ari and I worked on it while Ryan was napping. We have been discussing insects and they have been very interested in the Life Cycle of the Butterfly. So we made a poster for the school room. I think it is important to reflect on what they are learning and this is one way to do that. We also make books of our experiences so that they can go back through them and reflect on their experiences. Just yesterday we were reading a book we made exactly one year ago of our trip last year to Farm Days. Ari said "Can we make another book from our time tomorrow at Farm Days" My reply was "I would love to!" I am so excited that Ari and Ryan love to learn and get excited about these things as well!
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” - Fred Rogers

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
Who am I? That is a difficult question to answer! I am a wife to a loving man! I am a Mom of 2 wonderful children of which I homeschool. I love to scrapbook and take pictures mainly of the kids. I have five dachshund that are as close to kids as they get.
