Bring Back the Wonder

Children are born with amazing curiosity and wonder. Once they begin "school", the "standard" education model focuses on uniform instruction and memorization, silencing the wonder and awe that is God-given in every child. 

As parents, we have the opportunity to nurture these qualities and encourage their interests. Take this day and run with it. Savor the moments, do the necessary, and make the time to help them explore and find answers to their questions.

  9. We did the insect unit study back in April, and my kids still go out and look for interesting insects for us to identify all the time! We've been slowly working our way through the seashell unit study, but I'm hearing that my kids are wanting to learn about horses next :-)

  11. My girls love to learn about anything, really. If I had to pick one of those three topics, though, it would probably have to be princesses.

    ReplyDelete
  12. My girls would LOVE learning about real princesses. My oldest is interested in learning about all sorts of things while my 2nd daughter is mainly focused on anything girly and princessy. Next up for us is the Creative Composer's unit study. They're pretty excited about that one since they love dancing to classical music.

  13. All the above. They want to learn about everything. Volcano's is our current unit study topic. Next I think it will be bugs.

  14. My oldest lives learning about wolves. The grey wolf in particular. Tigers come in a close second.

  15. She loves all animals big and small!!

  16. Insects and Dolphins are on our list for this school year. We can't wait to get started today!

    ReplyDelete
  17. We have been studying habitats and will be shortly studying the ocean soon so the Dolphin study would fit right in although it would be interesting to study the tigers although we have finished the rainforest already. Either one sounds wonderful.

    my girls love to learn about anything especially fact based and records. So any of those topics would be of interest to them. Especially a princess in a rocket ship performing brain surgery with pet insects.

  31. We just finished the Ocean's Unit and it was fantastic. We had so much fun learning about all the different animals that live in the ocean. We also read books about it and watch some Planet Earth DVDs and it all fit together just perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  32. My boys just finished an insect unit so they would love to learn more about rockets and robots.

    Thank you for the great giveaway opportunity!

  44. My son actually hates to learn. But thanks to your unit study he has shown a new interest in doing school work. Thank you so much for giving him a little taste of the love of learning. Anything Space or Rock oriented he loves. In fact, we are using your Cavernous caves and taking him to see some real live caves so he can use his knowledge.

  45. My kids are fascinated by space.
