Homeschool chat with Our World Schooling Family

“In the land of human beings , beware those who shame you for your failings , who urge greater fidelity to a system what ails you rather than greater trust in yourself. Beware those who put institutions ahead of persons , and whose idealism tempts you to pretend away your problems and distresses in favourContinue reading “Homeschool chat with Our World Schooling Family”

Homeschool chat with Stephanie Radcliffe

“ The great educator Charlotte Mason says that when we put children in direct contact with great ideas and get out of the way, “Teachers shall teach less and scholars shall learn more.” Any homeschooling parent who has observed her own children for any length of time will know this to be true. Real learningContinue reading “Homeschool chat with Stephanie Radcliffe”

Homeschool chat with Judy Marie

“Don’t confuse the educational vehicle with the academic destination . In other words, it is less important whether you unschool or classically educate . Neither of these is inherently superior to the other . They are vehicles that you get to the end goal on the map- an educated , self- reliant adult. “ JulieContinue reading “Homeschool chat with Judy Marie”

Homeschool chat with Mountain Mother Runner

“Tips, tricks and techniques are not at the heart of education – fire is …… Not merely the facts , not merely the theories but a deep knowing of what it means to kindle the gift of life in ourselves , in others and in the world.” Parker Palmer Today’s homeschool chat brings you EmilyContinue reading “Homeschool chat with Mountain Mother Runner”

Homeschool Chat with Invitations to Play

“Your amazing , special , imaginative, talented , brilliant children are a gift , first and foremost.

Homeschool Chat with Elizabeth Lymer

“Rather than teach, lead . Rather than talk, act. Rather than following the curriculum or opening the book, express what you want your children to know. The secret of a vibrant homeschool is not in a book. It is you. You are the secret weapon. You do not have to be a good teacher. InContinue reading “Homeschool Chat with Elizabeth Lymer”

Homeschool Chat with Gentle Art of Learning

” Traditional education focuses on teaching, not learning. It incorrectly assumes that for every ounce of teaching there is an ounce of learning by those who are taught. However, most of what we learn before, during, and after attending schools is learned without being taught to us…. Most of what is taught in classroom settingsContinue reading “Homeschool Chat with Gentle Art of Learning”

Homeschool Chat with Little Homeschool on Prairie

” As teachers, parents and caregivers, we become not scientists with microscope and laboratory, but naturalists, who observe life and nature within its element- plain air (outdoors)-like the modern day ethnographer observing children in real life to see how and why they learn as they do.” Jack Beckman Today’s homeschool chat is with Tasha ,Continue reading “Homeschool Chat with Little Homeschool on Prairie”

Homeschool Chat with Ink and Blossom Homeschool

” Our children are children for such a small season of life. Let their laughter ring out, their imaginations soar, their feet stomp in puddles, their hands clap for joy. Too soon they will grow up and out of their youthful exuberance and zest and settle into the life and routine of adulthood”. L.R.Knost Today’sContinue reading “Homeschool Chat with Ink and Blossom Homeschool”

Homeschool Chat with Breanna Rein

“Children, even when very young, have the capacity for inventive thought and decisive action. They have worthwhile ideas. They make perceptive connections. They’re individuals from the start: a unique bundle of interests, talents, and preferences. They have something to contribute. They want to be a part of things. It’s up to us to give themContinue reading “Homeschool Chat with Breanna Rein”
