First Learn, Then Create

When I follow-up my learning with an application of the learning, I am more likely to remember what I learned.  I’ve found this works well for my children, too.

After field trips, I like to pause and reinforce the learning.  I especially like to do it creatively.  When I found this book at the library, my kids and I were excited to use it to reinforce some of what we’ve learned at National Parks.

The projects are approachable for our skill level, the instructions are clear and the photos are inspiring.  

Reading this book reminded me of Subpar Parks as well.  Another fun connection!

The best book on the subject of incorporating more creativity into our learning is:

Project-Based Homeschooling: Mentoring Self-Directed Learners By Lori McWilliam Pickert 

I hope that you, too, find creative ways to reinforce your learning.
