You Don't Need Stuff
think there is a common misconception with homeschooling, this need of
stuff. The fear that you can't do it "right" unless you have all these
specified tools. If you want to use all those things, go for it. But if
you don't have them don't get tricked into thinking you need them.
One simple set of blocks can be used to learn colors, counted,
patterned, stacked, weighed, etc. Not to mention built into castles,
imagined to be trains, swords, etc. The more basic and plain the
learning tool (toy), the more ways it can be transformed by the
"Imagination is more important than knowledge." -Albert Einstein"
