Develop an Enquiring Mind in Children

Develop an Enquiring Mind in Children

The ability to think critically and analytically then confidently reach their own conclusion is one of my main homeschooling goals for the children.  We learn lots of history (and that’s great). But my desire is to use history to teach the children more transferable skills, rather than simple knowledge.  I want them to think, hypothesise, predict, problem solve and support… Continue reading Develop an Enquiring Mind in Children

C. S. Lewis Wisdom: Growing Up

This year, the girls and I are studying The Chronicles of Narnia, written by C. S. Lewis. We have thrown ourselves into it (as usual!).

Learning From History

Learning from History

In our homeschool, learning from history happens intentionally between the ages of about five and twelve. History offers us everything. Apart from events of the past, history also gives us people to study, art, architecture, food, fashions, science, inventions…I could go on…and on…and on. Literally every ‘subject’ under the sun can be found within the… Continue reading Learning from History

Hero’s Are Made in Battles

I was reading my devotions yesterday from Sally Clarkson’s ‘Mom Heart Moments’. She was talking about the struggles we face in life and how important it was to always be facing towards God. These struggles are inevitable because we live in a fallen world, and, she continues, ‘Heroes are made in times of battle, and… Continue reading Hero’s Are Made in Battles
