Have you ever heard of delight-directed learning? Basically, it is a way to help your kids learn without realizing they are doing the hard work of learning. It means running with a topic that truly interests them and diving deep into it. Over our years of homeschooling we have used delight-directed learning mostly in the form of unit studies. It was during these times that my boys came alive and were eager to learn more. While there will always be subjects my boys struggle with {like math}, delight-directed learning can help keep them curious about the world and retain that love of learning.

My friend, Marcy, over at Ben and Me is doing a month-long series on how to use direct-delighted learning in July. You can hop over here to see what each day's topic will be. Marcy will have several contributors to these posts {including myself} so you will get to hear from different homeschooling moms and how they incorporate unit studies, rabbit trails, and "delightful" learning into their days with their kids. There will be posts on using curriculum as a jumping off point, gaps in learning, the book basket technique and so much more!

If you are interested, Marcy has also created a planner for this type of learning. Last month I had a chance to go through it and review all the great pages and information she provides. If you are interested in purchasing Delightful Planning, just click here!

I can't wait to read all the posts in this series! How about you? Are you interested in incorporating a bit of delightful learning this coming school year?
