Subscribed and would love to see more on creating a rhythm in the day and not losing that rhythm on the weekends.
First off congratulations on your new blog the design is classy and the articles are constructive and have variety. I would have to describe our style of homeschooling as "eclectic" and so I find myself cramming to ingest the latest lesson to creatively regurgitate it to one of my three children. I feel we need a bit more independent work for the older ones so that everyones gets what they need in the day, including myself.
I would love to see an article on involving fathers and also a post on repetition in a holistic education setting.
I love all the articles on outdoor play and creating outdoor play spaces. I'd love to see some on creating outdoor play spaces in the desert. It is a whole different ballgame out here! Not much shade, sun that ruins anything plastic or made from material, poisonous critters that live in the dirt and sand, metal that burns to the touch during the day...
Subscribed and read some posts. Some great ideas here already for topics! I'd like to see stuff about early Waldorf education (ie grades 1-2ish) with kids who are "ahead". I know the traditional approach is to still take it slow, do the whole story and picture for each letter etc, even with kids reading several grade levels ahead. Which is fine, my daughter loves the letter stories. But she also needs to be challenged. Ideas for meeting that balance of not *pushing* a child who is advanced in some areas, not feeling any pressure (or putting pressure on THEM) to keep achieving at a 'high' level -- while also not artificially delaying them by withholding stuff they could be doing. Modifying traditional Waldorf or scripted programs to meet an individual, asynchronous child. :)
I'd like to see a post with lots of CONCRETE suggestions about scheduling multiple children, accounting for having something for them to do while they wait for others to be finished, and dealing with grumpy attitudes.
I absolutely love this blog! I homeschooling my oldest child (now 19), and after years of going back to "public" education, we are beginning again with homeschooling our youngest 2, ages 3 and 5. Some ideas on homeschooling a special needs child (our youngest has Autism) would be awesome!!
