In Friday's entry, I shared pictures of our school area, and talked about some of the resources we use. I was amused to notice that the photos show an ESSENTIAL homeschool resources that I somehow neglected to mention–my tea cup!
Several years back I noticed I'd developed this tea-at-schooltime-habit, and I wondered if I could teach without my teacup! I did without for a couple days, proving to myself that it was indeed possible, but it felt all wrong.
I'm lost without my cup and saucer. I remember my mom saying she couldn't think unless she was holding a pencil. Even to look over my shoulder to help with a math problem, she'd grab a pencil that she had no need of actually using. Do you an interesting teaching quirk?
