Learn ways to Incorporate Teaching while Traveling

Nothing beats hands-on experience.  Not all learning takes place in the classroom, so keep an open mind when teaching your children.  Teaching while traveling is a good example of this.

I recently had the opportunity to interview 2012 Washington, DC Teacher of the Year (and mother of NINE kids), Perea Brown-Blackmon.  We discussed different ways parents can keep children learning while traveling.   One important thing is to make sure that your children stay engaged.  You can do this by creating activities that are age appropriate, fun and interesting.

We make up spelling games. We have been doing some type of game or discussion with our kids since they were born

If we see something interesting or unusual to our daily lives, it is a great teaching opportunity. I like to talk my daughter through things, explain things to her, and allow her plenty of time to ask questions. We also bought her a travel journal before our recent trip to Florida. She doesn't read much yet, but she was able to write down her thoughts and new experiences through pictures into her very own journal. Thanks for sharing this!

I love this Autumn, my son nis just now learning to write well, but cannot spell many things on his own. He is only 4, so I love the idea of making him draw the things he observes. Plus this is a great way to let me see what he is truly interested in and what attracts him.
