Where is your homeschool classroom?
Some people have their homeschool classroom mimic the public school classroom. Some people sit at the kitchen table. Some use the whole world!
Some great places to use the world for your classroom:
Children love to learn and their is no better place than the classroom that God has given us right in our own backyard! Bugs, flowers, grass, dirt, trees, sky, water, sand, animals, noises, smells, etc. These are just some of the tools that God has given us to use in our world classroom.
We sat in our backyard one day and wrote down all the sounds that we heard. We were studying birds from "Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day" from Apologia (great book) so we documented the birds as well. Sitting there, we heard so many creatures and smelled so many smells. It was amazing!
If we just take a moment to see what God has already given us to use in our homeschool, we will appreciate the homeschool classroom around us.
