|Plenty of kids to change one tire.|
There are so many other ways that kids can learn and often they learn even better by the hands-on, being there in first person, approach.
Here is some of the learning that has been going on around here:
~ One day last week when the kids and I were out at the land our tire went flat. The boys were quite excited. At last the would get to try jacking up the van and changing a tire. So they got the van jacked up by themselves (Megan helped too) and learned how to take the tire off and replace it (I did end up doing most of that work but they watched). That was a bit of practical learning that could definitely come in useful later in life.
We will wait until after the move and Labor day before we actually pull out the school books but still I say- School is in Session.
Do you try to really encourage your children learning throughout all of life?
