5 Ways to Prep for Spring, with Bonus Scavenger Hunt Printable!

5 Ways to Prep for Spring, with Bonus Scavenger Hunt Printable!

The sun is finally peeking out from behind the rain clouds here in Oregon, and that means that Spring is officially arriving (despite what the calendar tells us that it apparently arrived a few weeks ago). Not only is Spring a time for rejuvenation, finally spending some more time outside, longer days, and enjoying the blossoms everywhere, it is a wonderful time to get your home and your family prepared for all of the warm weather to come. If you spend a little bit of time now in early Spring thinking and planning ahead, you will breeze easily into late Spring, Summer, and even early Fall with wonderful learning spaces, a beautiful plan for outdoor exploration, and tons of fun to be had by all!   Here are five ways to use your Spring to prep for awesome outdoor time for the months ahead:   1. Explore how the world is changing. Spring brings some of the most dramatic changes to the natural landscape than any other season. Things suddenly bloom to life, the smell in the air changes, animals emerge from hiding, the sun stays out longer, etc.  Suddenly everything is fresh and new! The absolute best way for your child to see these changes is to get out there and LOOK! Explore in a big way – how are the trees starting to look different? And explore in small, micro ways – are there more birds and butterflies outside? Where are they going and what are they doing? Get your copy of this amazing new Springtime Nature Scavenger Hunt to make this exploration super fun and engaging!  ... read more

So naturally it’s something that crosses every new homeschooling parent’s mind – what about social growth? How do I make sure my child knows how to talk to other kids? What about participating in events? How do I find local things for them to do…. So I CAN SOCIALIZE THEM.

Adapting the Environment for Interest-Led Learning

Adapting the Environment for Interest-Led Learning

One of the most important pieces of interest-led learning is often left out of the process of developing learning experiences in the classroom/home – adapting the environment.

Once you’ve determined an interest that your group has, and you’ve figured out their background knowledge so you have a good foundational place to start with new learning experiences, you naturally want to start researching ideas for activities to explore that interest. But before you head to Pinterest or start exploring teacher blogs for ideas, you need to bring your attention back to your own environment first!
