Homeschooling

Homeschooling…wow! What an adventure!

The kids have had a great education at a Montessori school and we are trying to emulate their philosophy of engaging Asher & Avy’s passion for being self-directed, life-long learners. We hope to expose them to a vast array of experiences, people, places and ideas, both near and far from home. And hopefully they’ll still love us in the end!

This blog will mainly be written by the kids. They say they have some stories to tell. One of our favorite ways to learn is to find something that the kids are interested in and just set them free to explore it.

Some of you have asked what a typical day looks like, and while every day is quite different…

it always involves lots of this:

being outside and exploring our world as much as possible

Lots of building and making and writing

Someone at the art table

Lots of togetherness

and bus riding, and traveling, and visiting museums, and lego city planning, and dancing, and piano playing, and oh yes, a good math, science, and spanish curriculum!
