Teaching Questions

Do you know how to teach?
Can you help a child her dreams reach?

Do you possess the skill?
To young minds with curiosity fill?

Do you remember how it were?
The world wonders to explore, no adult burdens to obscure?

Do you know how to sow?
Seeds of lifelong lust to know?

Right now me, and countless parents around the world face a reality in where to work at home (if we’re lucky) and simultaneously school our kids at home. Most of us having left that responsibility with educated professionals when the kids were barely toddlers.

I’ve felt very thankful these last two weeks, that I worked as a teacher a in my early twenties. That I have a some education in pedagogy.

I know that keeping an as-normal-as-possible routine is vital for most kids. So we’ve made a schedule. I focus extra on excursions in nature – we’ve searched for spring signs and dug a new canal from a big water puddle. On practical skills like baking bread and cooking food, areas where math and chemistry plays a big part. And also I’m lucky to have access to a big library of educational tv-shows courtesy of the state owned Utbildnings Radion.

I would assume you could find similar material done by the BBC, and other organizations, but right now I have no good English language links to share.
