We had a long respite from any kind of organized learning around the holidays. The week before Christmas we were busy creating, decorating, and cleaning for guests, the week after enjoying some family time, and the week of New Year's playing with schooled friends home on vacation. By the end of this time Juniper said, "Mom, can we do some math please". Love this. Times like these reassure me that yes, we're doing something right.
A few more child led learning moments from the first weeks of this new year:
"Let's do some chemistry"
He would of course prefer toxic chemicals, and as he often mentions, "a real bunsen burner", but fortunately was happy (in this particular case) to work with colored water, funnels, and test tubes.

This tracing paper was a gift I picked out that has been a huge hit. Its fun to see what they choose to trace: design magazines, clothing catalogs, bird books.
All good stuff, and all child led. A nice way to kick off the new year.
