The Art of Home Education: Expat Family Ties

The Art of Home Education

The informative site The Art of Home Education republished a post I wrote for Expat Child on the topic of keeping family ties alive when huge physical distances keep extended families apart. You can read Expat Family Ties here.

If you aren’t familiar with the site head on over and take a look. There are some great features, as well as information and links about home schooling.

In particular the Week Window feature is a lovely roundup:

“A weekly overview in pictures accompanied by a short description. Beautiful moments, creativity, inspiring surroundings, wonderful nature and more we encounter during our “little” adventures.”

And I love The Art of Home Education’s tag line:

“Let the journey be shaped by the curiousity of the child…”

  1. I wish that focus of letting the curiosity of a child lead their learning was something more widely used within a school setting (I am a teacher with ten years experience) and have had some of the best teaching experiences when there has been less planning from me and more leadership from the children. Sadly, this does nto go down well with the management or inspectors!
