Very quick post. Don’t underestimate the importance of visuals or posters.
Near our kitchen table we have a poster map of the world. At meal times it akways leads to discussions about the world, flags, countries etc.
Today at breakfast R noticed that the continents look like jigsaw pieces and recalled a book she read about continental drift. I thought opportunity to learn. .. so we went to YouTube and found this video which is really great for kids.
A bit of autonomous learning at breakfast time on a Saturday morning. .
We need to grab these opportunities of sudden interest.
Posters really are great in initiating discussion. I’m thinking of changing our posters regularly. It’s a good place for us as when the kids don’t like something I cook, they take ages to eat the dish and stare at the poster I put up which gets a discussion going.
