I have a new homeschool revolution! It is very apparent that the following is true…
The six year old’s brain is located in his Derriere!
We did an experiment.
He was perched upon top of his chair, feet in the chair, knees in all sorts of positions, and incessantly moving around. In this position, he was not paying attention, could not process the instruction I was giving him, and performed poorly on his assignment.
Then…..I made him sit down — connect his behind with his chair seat, and instantly he understood the spelling rule we were studying!! Immediate success!
So, we are beginning to understand the learning processes in our first year of homeschooling…..
“In order to achieve knowledge, one must connect the “brain” to the chair”.
