Most-Loved Episodes #6: Where We Begin with Deschooling
2022/06/20
We're sharing some of the most-loved episodes from our archives. Here's #6!   We do two episodes a week—this is our free one. Join us on Patreon to unlock a NEW episode every week for just $5/month!   #6: Where We Begin with Deschooling This episode originally aired on January 27, 2020.   So, like, what even is deschooling?! The fact is this: We are immersed in a schooled mindset. It's the air we breathe, the water we swim in. Deschooling is a way to reprogram our thinking about learning.  We're going to talk through this essential homeschooling tool: What is it? Why bother? What does it actually look like? And what comes next?   Highlights from this episode: Learning is natural and happening all the time. Deschooling doesn't mean it's a free for all.  Deschooling lets us concentrate on connection.  Deschooling teaches us that deep thinking is deep thinking--it doesn't matter if it's about math or Minecraft. Don't use your status as an adult as a weapon. As parents, we are continually deschooling ourselves.      It's all happening on Patreon! You can always get new content on Patreon!

Most-Loved Episodes #7: Where Audiobooks Count
2022/06/13
We're sharing some of the most-loved episodes from our archives. Here's #7!   We do two episodes a week—this is our free one. Join us on Patreon to unlock a NEW episode every week for just $5/month!   #7: Where Audiobooks Count This episode originally aired on February 24, 2020.   "Do audiobooks count?" We're here to shout it from the rooftops: YES! Listening to audiobooks, or "ear-reading" as it's also known, is a valuable and legitimate form of reading, with some of its own unique benefits not found with eye-reading. Let's demystify the idea of eye-reading superiority and celebrate all the amazing things about ear-reading and audiobooks!   We'll each be sharing our Top 10 audiobooks for kids in a bonus episode for our Squad on Patreon. That's 20 audiobooks total! Hop on over to Patreon to get this bonus episode and alllll the other rewards.   Highlights from this episode:  -Listening to audiobooks can help readers develop a writing voice, understand sentence structure, boost their vocabulary, make connections with abstract thinking and metaphors, and learn naturally some elements of writing that might get missed with eye reading. -Audiobooks are a way to help more people experience the joy of books. Eye-reading is not accessible for everyone. Plus, audiobooks can be a perfect match for differently wired kids or readers with non-visual learning styles. -Audiobooks can help our readers to know that reading is fun, especially when eye-reading is difficult.  -Hearing stories can help build scaffolding and support for readers as they work toward eye-reading.  -Ear-reading exposes readers to more genres and more information at an earlier age. This can help readers grow their love of books. -Audiobooks can give our kids the best example of reading: the best narrators, the best pronunciation of words, the best way to read the story as it is written.      It's all happening on Patreon!
