One of the best things, one of the things I love the most, about homeschooling is how you can extend learning far out of the classroom.
Extra things that, before, were just "activities" can be counted as field trips and educational excursions.
A couple of weeks ago, we took the kids to their first ever live football game. It was our old high school's team, and the kids have been asking to go forever (every time we passed the school, which in our small town, is often).
Before long the kids had been versed in real-time football play terms and vocabulary. Mr. Tinker obsessed over the numerous clocks and timers; Miss Artsy sharpened her social skills and made some friends. And it was FUN.
Who says learning can't be?! ~~
