Learning is about Exploring

It never fails to surprise me at Learning Lab (LL) my kids always ask ‘When are we going to do art?’

Naturally I diligently cover the academic subjets but when it comes to art I sometimes think…. hmmmm we need to work on spelling really…. or maybe we should do more maths practice….

But seeing the pride on my children’s face of their finished art pieces or newly painted Greek helmet made out of paper mache, I think no I am glad we didn’t do more spelling work…. my child has just explored how to use a pencil differently. He has discovered he can represent a carrot in the form of lines n shades.

Spelling can wait….
