I do love homeschooling our daughter. We try and get out and see other kids at least 2-3 times a week, if not more. This week has been full of playful activities – a mammal study taught by a young teen (or is he still a tween?) homeschooler on Monday, Story Time at the library and free play at McDonald’s after that on Tuesday, free play and exercise at a gym/community center on Wednesday, and…
Today we will be taking a field trip to the Johnson County Museum to learn more about how communities function. Here is the description of the class:
Take a guided tour of the exhibit KidScape and learn all about community! Compare and contrast rural, suburban, and urban communities. Describe the goods and services communities provide their citizens. Learn about Johnson County residents, past and present, who made contributions in their community. Explain community in terms of wants and needs. What do communities need in order to function? What do communities want in order to be desirable places to live? Students will answer these questions and more as they explore KidScape and participate in a hands-on activity about community.
We have a packed schedule of activities, events and learning opportunities all week every week. My kiddo meets more people and has more fun learning opportunities in one month than I did over most of my childhood.
I’m seriously considering getting a bumper sticker that says, “My homeschooler is more socialized than your public school kid.”
What do you think? Too in your face? Or just the right twist of humor?
