~Link up or share your favorite lessons this week!
When I envisioned home-schooling my children, I pictured desks and worksheets. Now, lets be honest… There are worksheets. We even have desks. And yes, I do keep attendance.
Though math worksheets and handwriting do make up a part of our school day, that isn’t all we do and it certainly isn’t the most important and wonderful part of our days.
Practice is what you get from worksheets. Learning comes from experiences.
We are rich in experiences.
And I only got through September when I was pulling these photos…
This is the hard part of the year. It’s February. It’s cold. Momma is tired. Momma wants her kids to be able to go outside and play in the yard without bundling them up so much that they can’t fit down the slide.
For classroom teachers, February is the longest month of the year, no matter what the calendar says. Too many days with indoor recess makes teachers cranky. C’mon. Admit it.
So, that’s why we are here. Saturday School. Hope you’ll join in the show-and-tell linky party today. Share your touching stories. Contribute your great lesson ideas. Tell us about the miserable flop of a lesson that disappointed you. Tell us about a field trip that really touched the kids. Tell us about a lesson you learned years ago that will never be forgotten. Tell about that tough as nails teacher that made you work hard and taught you more than any other. Whatever. Just share.
You may post a link to a specific education related post on your blog. If you don’t blog, leave a comment to share your story. But share. Inspire us. Commiserate with us. Make us laugh. Make us cry. And by all means, help us get through February with our sanity!
Hope you’ll share this post with lots of friends, too. Don’t forget the nifty “Wanna Share” buttons on the right side of the blog that make it so easy to post a link to your facebook or twitter accounts.
*By the way, I’m trying out a new link tool. Not sure what to expect from them, so if you have any trouble linking up, please let me know. :)
