    Default Our new method

    Thought Id share what we started this year as I think it has worked well for us, or at least I hope!
    I call it journaling/notebooking as I m not sure it actually has a name! Each one has a binder with paper. Basically we pick a general topic. For example right now kids picked cooking as a topic so weve been doing cuisines around the world. We start discussing the topic while they note take and draw pictures of the discussion. I factor in several subjects within the topic. With our cuisines weve done geography,art, music, history, social studies, math etc. all in one topic. At the end of each area we study we make a dinner with all the foods we learned about. We just finished the Mediterranean. Was a fun time!
    Does anyone else do anything similar? How has it worked for you?

    That sounds terrific! We get into themes like that but it is far from exclusive. Most of the time it is a social studies or science topic that gets us started.
