Way back a couple weeks ago the two older boys and I took an outing to Drumlin farm. It was on a Tuesday morning and we met our farm-school coop friends there, so the outing was totally in a home-schooling context. Of course, knowing us it wasn't entirely schooly!
Still, there was some learning done. Direct experiences are always valuable—especially so in preschool.
And being a teacherly sort I made sure to get some situationally-relevant math problems in there for the 1st graders. They also had some chances to explore the built-in teaching material on the farm, and I was proud of their interest and focus.
In fact, I was so amazed by how well Harvey was reading that it inspired my recent reevaluation of his progress!
But there was also plenty of time for good old-fashioned playing.
Whatever the educational justification, it's always nice just getting a chance to hang out with good friends!
