The Lizard Hunter and I have been struggling to find our groove in homeschooling this year.
The Youngest of the Reluctant Clan is all boy, all the time; a dynamo of energy and creativity for whom a facsimile of traditional school at home just isn’t cutting it. It has been wearing on both of us to try and shoehorn his wild boyhood into a traditional math and reading based curriculum. In addition to personality, learning differences have played their part in forcing us to think new thoughts about instilling a love of learning in our Dangerous Boy.
To that end; I introduce: The Dangerous School for Boys! Join us as we take the Dangerous Book for Boys as our textbook and journey into the unknown, jump off piers, make treehouses and explore ancient Sparta… among other things.
Do you want to join us on our Journey? Do you have an out of the box boy, or girl, whose spirit longs to soar and dive with every change in the wind? Leave a comment below and link to your Dangerous School posts.
And now, if you don’t mind, I’m off to practice my morse code and smoke signals!
