You Don't Need Stuff

"I 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.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge." -Albert Einstein"
