One of the best aspects of homeschooling is the freedom to "school" in any setting, at any given time. Since I've had trouble keeping Clayton focused while Jackson is around, I have to steal away the moments when Jackson is otherwise occupied and use them to Clayton's educational advantage. This means schooling on a crazy schedule for now, but whatever works, right?
This photo was taken on Saturday. We had been camped out in the garage watching the traffic at Clayton's request. When Jackson went down for a nap, I took the moment and ran. Out came the books and teaching materials! And in this case, those materials included a book about trains---Clayton is fascinated by trains these days and it only makes sense to explore all aspects about them for his first unit study of the year!
