I know that many of “real homeschoolers” follow some sort of curriculum, even for young kids. I mentioned several times that we don’t. This curriculum freedom allows me not to stress over being “behind”, and I can try different things and reject them if they don’t work. I am very interested in an idea of child-led learning, but until recently I wasn’t sure how to introduce this idea to Anna. Recently, however, she started to show more interest in certain topics, for example, everything related to human body and health. So I decided to try something new. I created this set of cards in CorelDraw – my husband and I do all our digital scrapbooking and other digital art projects in CorelDraw. Unfortunately, I can’t share the file, because these images come from CorelDraw proprietary image library, but you get an idea :) My husband cut and laminated the cards, and I asked Anna to choose what she would like to learn more about next week. I was pleased that she very quickly zeroed on three topics that I sort of expected her to choose – Planet Earth, Human Body, and Dinosaurs. After some hesitation she chose dinosaurs. I am very excited – there are so many good books and good crafts about dinosaurs. I am hoping to have a week with a new dinosaur book every day, a new craft every day, possibly watching Dinosaur Train and a lots of pretend play with dinosaurs. I hope that she likes the idea so much that she will start generating her own ideas soon.
