Here she is showing me how perfect it is for her. She had been carrying it around for a few days before she even thought about gathering sticks for arrows. Once she had arrows, she made a poster and tickets to a show to see the Amazing K. Then she practiced for the show, which included audience participation, comedy and shooting at targets. There was value in that activity that I couldn't have found in a worksheet for her.
Just this past weekend, K found a bunch of feathers in the backyard. Her first thought was to check them out under the microscope.
It actually brought forth quite a bit of "wows" as she studied them for a while.
Then in true K fashion, she bagged and labeled them.
You just never know when a great learning opportunity will present itself, but when you begin to homeschool you realize just how often and how valuable each of those moments can be. Whether or not you homeschool, embrace those special times. The kids grow up way too fast.
