Are you curious about children’s learning and the art of learning to read? Join me on a journey as I explore a unique perspective on education. This episode celebrates a remarkable milestone, the 50th episode of the podcast, and delves into the transformation of amy own perspective. From traditional classroom settings to embracing alternative education methods, discover how children’s learning can be more organic and child-centered. I question conventional teaching approaches and consider the benefits of nurturing a child’s innate curiosity and creativity.

In this episode about children’s learning, you will learn:

  • Where I started in the classroom: Explore educational methods that prioritize a child’s individual growth and development, rather than adhering to rigid curricula.
  • Formal reading and writing: Consider the advantages of allowing children to naturally progress into reading and writing at their own pace, often around six or seven years old.
  • My reluctance to encourage free play: Understand the significance of unstructured play in a child’s learning journey, fostering creativity and problem-solving skills.
  • Question traditional expectations: Challenge the notion of preparing children for school readiness and explore approaches that honor childhood.
  • Focus on authentic and purposeful learning: Recognize the value of tailoring education to a child’s unique needs and interests, making learning a meaningful experience.
