more and more i’m seeing how our learning doesn’t stop and start according to a set calendar. because AP was a teacher and so much of our lives was still determined by the academic Sept-June calendar, i used to assume that our homeschool would follow a similar schedule. but Summer was too rich–good weather, trips out + about, summer reading, birthdays–for all this learning not to *count*. but that’s not to say that our days look the same in Summer…
we’ve all been drawing thanks to ICAD. one big change for me is that i am copying from books i like instead of manufacturing the content. so good for getting to know my materials, so good for my practice.
Lori’s(free, magical) journaling class starts on Sunday. today is the last day to sign up. do that, ok? also, here’s a link to Lori’s how-to-teach reading advice. how is it i’ve never seen this before?!
i plan to hone my ninja journaling skills next week with Lori, and then spend the rest of the Summer working through the exercises in Marsha Johnson’s Main Lesson Book. even got this stack of books to start us off!
i ran into Michael Nobbs of Sustainably Creative (just the blog title is a breath of fresh air to me!)this morning…lots to look at there…printed out the 75 Ways to Draw More zine for a Father’s Day gift.
and for your listening pleasure…Melissa Wiley the Amazing. haven’t listened yet. will be worth your time. i promise. really.
