Schooling Rhythms: Episode 10

Today we want to share what our new school year looks like now that we have a couple of months behind us.

We are year round schoolers choosing to take breaks when we need them along the way.

This is our 10th podcast so we should celebrate right??? We have both been rereading Sarah McKenzie’s book Teaching from Rest and thought it was the perfect thing to give away (With a little surprise thrown in as well).

NOW to the podcast notes~

Our calling is teaching our CHILDREN not a curriculum. It is only the tool that helps us along the way.

It may take a few tries to find what you love and feel confident using to teach your kids.

We have tried LOTS of different things and still second guess on a weekly basis. {Sarah McKenzie says in Teaching from Rest~ “The resource will be our servant, not our master”.

Here are a few spines we have used. {Very important to me that several children be able to sit together for parts of the day}
