Learning Through Experience

You thought I dropped off the face of the earth, didn't you?

We've been so busy learning through experience, I haven't had a chance to post in a couple of weeks.  I hope the pictures (yes, finally!) will help make up for my absence, though!

A few weeks ago, we took a family vacation to Nana and Grandpa's house. We had a chance to do lots of hands on learning while we were there.  (There were lots of Signing Smart strategies used too, but none of those got caught on camera...go figure!)


We could talk about horses and read stories about them all day long, but what better way to learn what a horse is than to meet one?  My big boy rode Cinder for close to an hour.  Little Guy got to meet and pet Cinder, no ride for him this time. (Maybe after he learns to sit up on his own.)


We had a beautiful week, so we got to experience lots of water activities.


The science museum had a dino exhibit.  They were a bit intimidating! We talked a lot about how these dinosaurs had feet that couldn't move from behind their fence, and that their squeals and growls were just their way of talking to each other.

More next time!

What were your favorite hands-on learning experiences this summer?
