First Explorations Sample Activity

I created My First Book of Explorations as an interpretation of how my son and I approached our early years of learning. Back then, I put a bunch of broad categories in a bag and let him pick around a handful each week. He then got to choose how we refined them – for instance, if he picked Animal Studies, he could pick which creature he was interested in, such as a whale. We would then look around the house, our local library, or online to find games, projects, books, videos, and other ways to explore his topics.

Try this method out in a couple of different ways with the letter C in the download below!

Who am I? Foremost, the lucky momma of an amazing boy. To be perfectly honest, I am less his teacher than he is my inspiration - I have learned at least as much from him in the last eight years as he has from me. I am an old-timer at heart; I'd rather live on a farm, garden, crochet, and raise my kid out in the sun than anything else. I'm a bit of a technological dinosaur, more geared toward life where you can get your hands dirty and have some fun exploring, learning, and growing. I'm a homeschooled, homeschooling single parent with a passion for my son, nature, and the simple life. I am not here to pretend I know it all or lay out the research or provide a step-by-step game plan. I hope to encourage and inspire families to join in the journey of learning together - and have the fun that life is supposed to be made of along the way. Happy exploring!
