“Learning Time” vs. School

How is it that my kids love “learning time”, but don’t like the mention of school?

When they were little (a least littler than they are now!), I began “Learning Time” as a way to teach them at home without making it seem like a formal process. I spread a blanket on the ground, gather some resources and sing, “It’s learning time, it’s learning time, come and sit for learning time. It’s time to rhyme, your time to shineeeeeeeee….so come and sit for learning time!” ….and they love it!

This morning when I said we were going to do school, they both automatically said, “No, Learning Time!”
It’s amazing how the same thing presented in a different way has a totally different effect….
