I wasn't sure if I should create a page titled "Learning" as I strongly believe everything that happens between birth and age 5 is learning, but this page will serve as a repository of links, resources and articles that I've found relevant for our learning activities at home.
A bit about what we do now:
While Claire does not attend a formal Pre-School, she participates in an independent story-time experience at our local library (which is a blissful hour of uninterrupted library time for me), and she takes a bunch of town sponsored classes together each season - usually something craft or physical activity related, think dance and seasonal crafts. We have family memberships at a number of wonderful museums and we attend nearly all of their education department offerings.
Above all, we read and read and read. We especially LOVE audiobooks around here. I have rediscovered a few of my childhood favorites on CD like Ramona Quimby, what fun!
Here are a few of my favorite learning projects from the archives
