I want them to see the possibilities.
I want to feed and encourage their natural curiosity.
I want them to be inspired and see where it takes them.
Charlotte Mason (known as the grandmother of modern home education) once said that every day a child needs…
Something to love, something to do and something to think about.
I love this advice. Everyday I try to give my girls something to wrap their minds around and ponder. I can never predict what will inspire them to learn more or try something new.
TedTalks for Kids, Ted Teens and the Ted-Ed Lessons are a welcome aid for me in expanding our world. I love the diversity of Ted Talks for Kids. In one sitting we’ve explored super-charged street dance, a mathamagician and a robot toy maker. And that’s only the beginning of our journey.
I’ll share our journey here through a weekly series highlighting the talks that we’ve enjoyed most. I’ll share what we’re learning along the way. Watch for a few posts just for parents too, because I know I won’t be able to resist sharing my own favorites.
To kick off the series, I want to share with you one of our favorite talks. It’s called “The Augmented Reality of Techno Magic.” It’s fun and entertaining and leaves you wondering how did he do that?
