I just had to pass this along. Today my four-year old went to his art/dance class at the art center. I always wait on him in a room outside of his class. Today his art teacher came out all excited and told me on her way through, "You are going to flip when you see what he made today. It is awesome!" She walked into the other room, and she and another person carrying a camera went back into the classroom. I heard his teacher tell the other woman, "This is the tree man." When class was over, my son showed me his creation. Today they had made inventions, and my son's was a tree machine. They had used everyday things to make something (we do that a lot and call it recycled art. We like to look at "Look-Alikes books, too). His teacher was just amazed at what he had done. I smiled and agreed that it is very creative. It was great! I felt like adding, "See what unschooling does," but I didn't. :^) Kandy
Other than being a full-time unschooling mom, I am a graduate of Liberty University with a bachelor or science in religion, a bachelor of science in education, and a master of arts in human services: Christian ministries. I believe God is calling me to begin a type of urban ministry that focuses on emotional and spiritual abuse. You will see several blogs listed under my username. Dandelions and Daisies is no longer in operation, but I do keep the blog up to show some of the activities we conducted.
