Handy blogs for homelearners

I don’t know exactly what will happen with the kids schooling. I’m a big believer of following their lead and their inclinations.

But I’m also a big believer in my own ability to provide them with more learning opportunities than any institution would. These are just a couple of reasons: I have only 2 “students” to look after so I can devote more individual time; caring for their physical and mental wellbeing is my current full time job; I am a smart resourceful knowledgable woman; and because no one else in the world cares for these 2 kids more than I do.

We’re taking it year by year, semester by semester, but I know the time will come when decisions will have to be made, and I might possibly be the usual minority fighting the world…

Until then, I’m essentially homeschooling/unschooling the kids, providing them with lots of opportunities to learn about themselves and the world.

So here are just a few places where I’ve been finding all sorts of inspirations and ideas. I’ll update them bit by bit as I come across them. Feel free to give me some pointers if you know of any great blog/website for little learners!
