On this, the fourth day of the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge,
I’m talking a little bit about delight- directed education. As a home-schooling mom, I really believe it’s important to try to make learning fun. I don’t believe there’s a necessity for “drudgery” when it comes to learning, if one has the option of making it enjoyable. That doesn’t mean my kids ONLY learn with fun things, or that they NEVER experience drudgery while learning something, it just means that whenever I am able, I try to find ways to make their learning be something fun, engaging, and often-times, stealthy, so that they don’t even realize they ARE learning something!
When any of them expresses an interest in a particular topic, we can find resources like books, games, TV shows, movies, all kinds of things that are related to that topic. That, in a nutshell, is delight-directed learning! 🙂
