We aren't usually big fans of book work, but every now and again the kids have me pull out the books to write in. You know the ones. Match this to that. What letter is missing? Word Searches. Spelling/penmanship workbooks. Here they are doing a fine job at the kitchen table while I tackle the dishes.
"Schooling, instead of encouraging the asking of questions, too often discourages it." ~ Madeleine L'Engle
