What does a typical day of world-school look like? Here’s a small sampling of the things we did and learned today on Ambergris Caye, Belize:
“This is a good workout, Mom.”
Snack time – healthy eating
Observation and appreciation of nature
Measuring, comparing and contrasting – Kimball with his ‘water depth’ measuring stick
Number values and currency exchange
Plus Pinnochio and Wind in the Willows on our Kindles! (LOVE the Kindles!!)
Teamwork and problem solving
Communication and interpersonal skills
Love it! I am trying to train my husband to read on my Kindle. I’m telling him it is that so he has something to read when we travel but really it’s so he can take my old one and I can get a new one. It’s the love of my life
Yes, we were slow to convert over, but now they’re a ‘must have’. So convenient for travelers especially.
Now that’s the way to learn. Great job! One day very soon we will teaching and learning the same way.
It’s pretty amazing, I must admit, and I’m so grateful for it!! We all love ‘school’.
Don’t forget about music class.
Yes! We had some of that today Guitar and singing.
This is so great, seeing kids learning WITH their parents!
Yep! That’s what I LOVE about it.
These post is truly an example that you cannot learn everything inside a classroom. That the true teacher in life is the real world- the outside world. Thanks for sharing!
It’s very true. SOOOOO much is learned by experiencing life and all it has to offer.
