We love fresh produce! My family and I enjoy picking beautiful fruits and veggies weekly. I think of it as a dual experience infusing learning in every trip. Exploring practical, real life learning is fun and necessary! With our topsy turvy educational system, creating solid learning opportunity for your child(ren) is golden. Taking stake in shaping the scope and influence of what your child’s education is a way to stay active and engaged in your childs learning. While the local farmers market may not be of interest to you and your family; create valuable experiences with intentional learning objectives.
1. Museums: Travel to historic museum and sites are useful for sharing history about local, state and national government. Often times learning material not mentioned in your textbooks!
2. Discovery Centers: Science museum, LEGOLAND, Art Museum. These centers support STEM learning, sensory and fine motor learning, collaborative learning and exploration.
3. Markets/Grocery Store: Colors, textures, shapes, numbers and more. You can cultivate culinary creativity, including mathematic, reading, critical thinking and reasoning skills.
4. Local Library: Many local libraries have great supplemental educational programs. Many activities support reading, sensory and exploration activities. Seek your local library system website for program times and detail.
What’s great about guided learning is this concept can be applied at any education level; Toddler - 12th grade. No matter where you are learning can be added! Support your child, pushing their transjectory, exploring their interest with intentional connections.
