This week in our child-led homeschool… An Everyday Story

I shared these photos on Facebook this week but thought I would share them again here. Do you ever bring your child’s art back out for them to continue working? This was the tape artwork Jack (5.5yrs) and Sarah (3.5yrs) created a few weeks agoAn Everyday StoryI brought it back out with some paints to see how they would be inspired. Sarah worked so hard on this piece; painting so carefully and intentionally. An Everyday StoryShe is so proud to have it hanging in Jack’s room. Sarah wanted to create this for him. An Everyday StoryFor maths, Jack chose to work with these coloured blocks a lot this week.
An Everyday Story An Everyday StoryA provocation can be as simple as paint at the easel. An Everyday StoryJack is still writing books like a madman! More and more words are popping up in them which is always a delight to see.

An Everyday StoryWe had a little friend come and play this week. The three of them worked so hard on these block creations. An Everyday StoryAn Everyday StoryThey were completely silent!

An Everyday StorySarah has been working hard on writing and representing her name this week. An Everyday StorySarah’s box of treasures in her room. Each piece on her shelf is quite deliberately placed. I love the small vase of flowers too which she picked for herself from the garden. An Everyday StoryJack made these project boards this week. The one on the left says ‘The Clone Wars Jedi’ and the one on the right says, ‘The Clone Wars Sith’ (it says Sars but I think he got confused between Sith and Wars and got Sars 🙂 ) An Everyday StoryI love the little R2D2 and C-3POAn Everyday StoryI’ve been trying to encourage him to draw more detailed arms and legs to no avail. I do love the expressions on their faces though and the positions of their bodies. These Sith do look very menacing, don’t they? 🙂

  1. Beautiful as always!! Love those blocks. And Sarah’s collection!

  2. Another beautiful week Kate! I am so charmed by Jack’s project boards!!! What an awesome way to display his latest passions – very evident at the moment huh! Super cute. The chooks are producing at a great rate now huh. I love how Sarah enjoys them too. Eli is the same, every day he insists on counting them even tho it is always 4, hehee! Here is our week… it was a good one!

  3. Such beautiful pictures and great content. Your children are very blessed to have such a gifted mother. The progression in learning is palpable. This is one of my favorite education blogs.

  4. I love your gentle way. Your children are lucky indeed!

  5. I have been following you for a few months and have loved every post. Inspiring, honest, insightful and beautiful. They remind me of my raison d’être of being at home with my children; to treasure them and ignite their passion in life and the world. Something to easy to forget on the manic, challenging days.

    You’ve increasingly used the phrase ‘provocation’ in your writing and whilst I understand what you mean by the context I’d love to know more – how do you set things up for them to stumble on? Where do you find inspiration?

  6. Dear Kate, I have really enjoyed reading your posts. I am new to the Reggio way and am finding your pictures etc very helpful. I have recently been on a Reggio conference here in South Africa and am inspired to introduce the Reggio way where possible. I am a preschool teacher to children aged 4 and 5 years old. My big challenge was how to incorporate the Reggio approach into our curriculum with all the outcomes that need to be met. It would be great if you can shed some light on this.
    Kind Regards
