Thanks for coming back to another day of our month of Scholé Everyday! If you missed the first post which explains what's going on, take a minute to read it. Remember, these are just going to be short posts with an idea to encourage you in the way of restful learning.
How is your month going so far? I have been pretty consistent about having classical music on when my kids come out each morning. We are all enjoying it! We have had some flowers on the table, but now that I think of it, I should go cut some more from our garden =) I am looking forward to meeting with a friend next week for some good conversation. Which things from this series have you incorporated so far?
Today my encouragement to you is to:
Take it Outside!
I live in Michigan, and it is starting to get chilly. Now that isn't to say that we won't have another 90 degree day, because that is how Michigan is, but fall is definitely on the horizon!
Why don't you pick a subject today and take the kids outside to do it? Some subjects are not as conducive to this as others, but at least you could take a book out and have a read aloud session. It is hard to not contemplate the true, the good, and the beautiful when you are outside, so it is the perfect place to enjoy some restful learning!
If you still have some nice weather left in your area, you could purpose to do one school lesson outside each week until it gets too cold =) I know your kids would enjoy it, and I bet it would be good for your soul as well!
If you are purposing to incorporate scholé into your home this year, I'd love to hear from you! Share with me what you are doing or how these ideas have impacted your homeschool and I can compile your stories in to a post. I'd love to even have some guest bloggers if you'd like to write a whole post about how you are using scholé in your homeschool this year! Contact me and let me know how you are doing!
