Homeschooling…ON THE ROAD!!

by Kathy Sykes on February 18, 2010 · 1 comment

A few weeks ago I attended the Blissom2010 Conference in Nashville Tennessee and the particular days that I was in conference also happened to be Thomas’ preschool homeschooling days. Because my immediate family are my biggest supporters of putting family first and my homeschooling efforts, Thomas’ godfather (my brother-in-law) came up to Nashville to take my place as his homeschooling teacher. This was an incredible gesture but not unusual because he is the greatest godfather ever.

Before we made the trip to Nashville, I emailed my brother-in-law the curriculum that Thomas and I had been working from so that he could add his own spin to teaching while reinforcing what he had already learned. Thomas also was introduced to new internet websites that we can now use for learning.  Also, since Thomas was having the opportunity to “learn on the road”, he was able to learn some geography about other places in TN particularly Nashville.

I believe the best education can be learned by actual experience and the more travel we do, the more education can be learned. If you are a home-schooler or not, when traveling to other cities or countries, how can you incorporate your travels into your curriculum?  Of what importance is it? And do you feel traveling makes a difference in the growth and development of your child?
