Homeschool class for Emerging Readers


League of Independent Learners welcomes Ben Krieger, homeschooling dad of two, as he guides our emerging readers (approx ages 6 + 7) in an inquiry-based learning environment.

From Ben:

“For emerging readers, I avoid the educational approach of “dumping” knowledge and skills into my students, preferring techniques that allow children to enjoy and identify themselves as readers, writers, scientists and mathematicians well before they have developed the skills necessary for independent learning in these areas. I feel that kids this age should be engaging with the “Three Rs,” in the same organic, exploratory fashion usually reserved for art.”

Planned projects this trimester include self-publishing an original piece of writing, creating personal dictionaries, using a nature journal to explore the local environment, card and dice games to reinforce math concepts and more.
