Reggio-inspired, project-based homeschooler

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hello all,

i'm in the midwest and i have two sons, age 9 and 12. we're an old-school AP family, having always been self-employed and having the boys with us at home and at work.

i write about Reggio-inspired, project-based homeschooling and nature study and journaling.

we take full advantage of the work-at-home/school-at-home lifestyle and travel and camp throughout the year in our vw van. when we're at home, we enjoy life in the country.

looking forward to good discussions!

Hello from Reggio-inspired educator

Hi,

I am loving your website. It is really fantastic. You are doing such amazing things with those kids. I loved what you wrote about the project journal and observation. You very poetically hit the nail on the head in terms of why and how observation is such a powerful tool in education and inner growth for all involved. Love it.

I am an M. Ed with a few years of preschool teaching under my belt. I studied Reggio and had the opportunity to go to Reggio Emelia for the Study tour. I love it. My son is only 4 months old so we aren't exactly at full blown project time but you have inspired me to up my observation. I don't know what to do with him in terms of schooling later but you have me thinking........
