It may be advent but it’s technically still autumn until the 21st of this month. We’re savouring autumn as long as we can here whilst simultaneously enjoying our advent activities. This pile of plush leaves we found in Candie Gardens earlier this week was just too irresistible and simply had to be jumped in... and rolled in... and lied on... and kicked... and thrown! 🍂 . More snapshots from our autumn nature study up on the blog today.

If you are following the #amblesideonline #naturestudy rotation you might be starting climate and weather sometime about now! We are reading a book from the 1940s about British weather and I decided we'd also make a temperature scarf to cover #handicraft too. Picture 2 is from pinterest and we're using it to pick a colour to match the day's temperature outside. I'm ribbing the first few rows then will hand over to the kids for a garter stitch scarf! 3 days done so far at 2 rows per day. Just sharing in case it helps someone else to keep an eye on the weather x

How is your day looking? I’m holding my last event of the year tomorrow. This is an exclusive and complimentary members event at Rudding Park to thank them for their support and celebrate all their hard work! ✨ I can’t wait! Today will be spent getting the last few bits together and packing the car up ready for an early start in Harrogate. I hope you have a good day too xx #wanderlustchildnaturestudy

A sweet little phenology wheel almost complete for 2019. He decided that December will deliver something most exciting for him yet so it is blank for now! A phenology wheel is a really beautiful way for us to deeply connect with the cycles of nature. We record our favourite nature observation in the larger wheel and the central wheel is a way to remember our favourite thing that was grown and enjoyed from the garden. In a busy world that's run on linear time, I love the idea of encouraging children to look at the year from a cyclical perspective. The cycles of nature guide our lives, and we are all a part of this flow, continuously moving through cycles of change... the seasons... the lunar and solar phases... the tides... the animal and plant life cycles. Each cycle brings with it new things to see, smell, touch, taste and hear, along with shifting and shaping energy that we can feel. Understanding cycles helps us to remember that life has this ebb and flow that eventually comes full circle. I find a lot of comfort moving in sync with nature’s rhythm, and I hope my children will too. . . . #phenologywheel #naturescycles #naturestudy #naturejournaling #naturejournalingwithkids

Today we learned all about birds! I led the students though step by step instructions to draw these cute little birds! They turned out so cute!

#classicalconversations week 12

We've not intentionally studied nature this month, as I've been busy with kids rehearsals and end-of-year performances, plus road trips to Auckland and back this week! 🐝 🐝🐝 BUT when one of my homeschool mama friend's, messaged to say her boy was in surgery, after an accident at home, we whipped up to the hospital with some books and activities for mama and son ♡ We were surprised to see C up and about after his GA and out in the hospital garden, with his mama when we arrived. 🏥🐌 PTL! ✝️⛪ And our kids were more interested in the outdoor park area, at the hospital, than the books! 🤣😍😊 My friend remarked that only homeschool kids would be interested in picking pohutukawa flowers and finding the nest, this egg belongs in (swipe left!) This kids of ours had a great time exploring and r u n n i n g around the outdoor area, picking flowers, rehoming the egg and climbing over the huge rocks in the garden area. All the while, us mamas were murmuring prayers for C not to injure his sore arm any further 🤣 It just goes to show how kids automatically learn to be aware of AND interested in, their surroundings when you immerse them in the outdoors and nature ♡♡♡♡♡♡ #naturebasedlearning #exploringnaturewithchildren #1000hoursoutside #loveofnature #naturestudy #allthingsinnature #naturelovers #nature_seekers #homeschoolnz  #homeschool #HomeEducation #HomeEducator #nzhomeschool #kiwihomeschoolers #KiwiKids #schoolathome #homeschoolingmama #thisisourhomeschool #livingandlearning #aroundthetable #motherhood #learningathome #lifeinthecountry #childhood  #wildandfreemama #wildandfreechildren #countryliving #lifeschoolers #lifelearners

We have been learning U.S. geography this year. Today we pulled this puzzle 🧩 out of the closet to see how well we could put together the East Coast. The kids decided we couldn’t leave it unfinished, so they continued out West while I continued our story of Little House on the Prairie. #homeschool #charlottemason #charlottemasoneducation #homeschooldays #homeschoolirl #homeeducation #homeschooling #livingeducation #homeschoolyearround #naturestudy #wildandfreechildren #childhoodunplugged #homeschoolmom #alaskalife #alaska #wildandfreekids #wildandfreemomma #returntoplay #thecallofthewildandfree #365homeschool

Sagamore Hill NHS nature walk journal and nature study. Wild onion grows through the wet leaves.

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson⠀ ⠀ Hey friends! It's #naturewalkthursday and I love sharing our time in nature with you! During this season I find such peace in getting out into nature. Things are definitely getting colder here, but we don't yet have the snow that friends in other areas have. I would love to have a white Christmas, but in the meantime, I'll practice patience and enjoy the moment exactly as it is.⠀ ⠀ For more inspiration, you might like to follow some of my #naturewalkmamas friends💚⠀ ⠀ @loveathomeed@1000hoursoutside@mountainpaz@savor_every_season@raising_little_naturalists@theknotholetree@alearningwewillgo@ourlifeintheshire⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ ⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #naturestudy #naturelover #homeschoollife #homeschoolfamily #natureschool #outdooradventures #whywehomeschool #wildandfreemama #wildandfreechildren #exploringnaturewithchildren #living_homeschool #thisishomeschool #earlyyearseducation #naturekids #naturewalks #letthemplay #runwildmychild #iwasbornwild #livelifeoutside #outdoorplay #familytrails #optoutsideeveryday #hikingwithkids #pnwadventures #1000hoursoutside #outdoorkids #changingthefaceofbeauty #homeschoolingbyheart

Nature study, Christmas edition! Christmas Farm is so good! It's equal parts cozy, fascinating, and lush. (It’s on my list of Christmas Books for Nature Lovers on my blog- link in profile 😊) Within a beautifully illustrated story, the author weaves in so many concepts- math, patience, inter-generational relationship, and an understanding of where those Christmas trees come from! An author's note includes a brief history of the tradition of using evergreen trees for winter celebrations & Christmas, and the growth of the concept of intentional Christmas tree farms coming from a concern for forests at the time of Theodore Roosevelt's presidency.⁣ ⁣ Poinsettias and Christmas roses each have their own legend, with many similarities. These two were interesting for a compare/contrast. We also had a discussion about "legends" particularly after reading The Legend of the Christmas rose which intersects with the nativity scene.⁣ ⁣ #readaloudfamily #kidsbookstagram #kidlit #readingismagic #kidsbookswelove #raiseareader #readaloudrevival #homeschoolpreschool #homeschoolkindergarten #homeschoolcollective #homeeducator #homeschoolideas #livinghomeschool #naturekids #exploringnaturewithchildren #homeschoolfirstgrade #optoutside #childhoodunplugged #wildandfreechildren #vitaminN #charlottemasoninspired #naturestudy #charlottemason #365homeschool #naturalchildhood #naturestudy #naturalchildhood #enwcchristmasplantsweek

“Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning. They have to play with what they know to be true in order to find out more, and then they can use what they learn in new forms of play.” 🌿Fred Rogers

Finding beauty in the little things today! Took advantage of the beautiful sunny day to explore a new trail. We brought along some nature books and some snacks to enjoy when we stopped at a bench half way through the trail. It was such a nice way to end the week and to pause and be present with my little ladies.

This morning we explored the foggy fields close to home. It isn’t often that we get fog so the kids were excited to get to walk through clouds within what felt like another world. Although it was cold, I’m glad we still chose to go outside even when the warmth of the house seemed so cozy. Some of the things we talked about: What fog is, how it’s created, what it consists of, visibility and what it is, the difference between islands and peninsulas as well as depth measurements of puddles left from yesterdays rain. You can see more in my stories. #homeschool #naturestudy #wildandfreehomeschool #childhood

An advent activity to do with the children during the second week of the plant kingdoms. It doesn't cost a thing. Collect sticks and form this hanging tree. During the plant kingdoms week decorate this with plants (leaves, berries, etc.) 🌲 . . I know it's a little early ... but in my defense I won't be at home next weekend to decorate. Plus, I wanted to show everyone now so they would have time to prepare one.

After travels, when I go back to my #lgperpetualjournal , I feel a sense of grounding when I am reminded of the changing seasons and the small details that I’ve observed in past years. 🍂 today, I only had time (and space!) to add in the creeping vine in my backyard. I love those dried curling tendrils.
