homeschooling with both feet, as a grand
adventure. Everything is about learning, and
their days (and houses) show it.
What kind of Hundred Acre Wood Homeschooler Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla
Sure, I knew that already. Woo! hoo! hoo!
Just a cute quiz to take, maybe someone will get a different answer and let me know who they are/what their result to the quiz is/let me know if it’s accurate to their model of life if I don’t know what their’s is like.
We are Tiggery, we have no schedule, bounce all over the place and have fun … but don’t always have something visibly going on, it’s not a “physical” Tigger Home Education we have, but a Visual-Spatial anything mind or body sort of thing. Kind of like how the Pixar movie “The Incredibles” can be viewed as an allegory about Gifted Education … and translates beautifully to the entire gamut of “gifted intellectually” or “gifted physically” or “gifted creative artsy” types. In the movie the “gifted” are the “natural super-heros” and the guy who has no “natural super-hero ablility” does have what would be considered “giftedness” in our world, but in the movie it’s “fake super-hero” stuff, creative, sure, but not what makes a “super-hero” in the movie. So to align the creative guy in the real world with what he’d be around the “natural-super-hero’s” which are “naturally gifted” would be to make him out to be a clever system to make regular folk appear to be as smart, creative, physical as gifted folk, but really aren’t aside from great tools that make them mediocrely successful.
In the real world, great tools work MAGIC with gifted folks using them, and only make mediocre stuff out of non-gifted.
Like take art, music.
Put a gifted singer in front of a mic and let her rip
Put a wanna-be-singer in front of a mic and let her sing and let the studio make her rip.
The real singer is good on her own
The other ain’t, but is marketed.
That’s me. I don’t record, sure, wish I could, but that’s beside the point. I haven’t not succeeded, so what. I wish to, but haven’t pursued it. The only point I’m making here is that the singers out there being played are mostly not good naturally, and there are some of us out here that are naturally good, so they [the recorded ones] should all be happy we live in a world that Cindro created. 🙂
It’s just an example.
OK, so I am keeping my children with me, and it’s natural, and we are bouncy and plan to pursue all things that crop up. I’m not a bouncy person though. I’m as slow as molasses in person, quiet, reserved, crazy in my mind, racing around and having a million thoughts at once. To some I might be loud, but they don’t know the real me. I’m a nut in some cases, I can be really loud and forward, but normally I’m what I am: an introvert and glad to just watch and race around in my own head, that has rich worlds in deep layers inside.
This goes to me thinking then, how does a non-visual-spatial-introvert live in their heads, what’s it like? If they aren’t pictoral in thought, how do they introvertedly be reflective in the introvert-ish way. See there, now I have some new knowledge to pursue. That’s sort of what it’s like in our home educationally. One thing sparks a new idea and we or they or I or the one goes off and finds something else that brings them to that other thing, then sparks a revolutionary thought that opens up a whole new something else.
La dee da da day, normal day for us.
