Child-Led Learning // How to Make Harry Potter a Homeschool Curriculum


Child-Led Learning // How to Make Harry Potter a Homeschool Curriculum

The Parenting Junkie takes us on a journey through child-led learning. Child led learning is when you follow the child’s interest and allow them to learn through that interest they have. As opposed to parent led learning, childled learning still involves parents but more as a support system than the leader of the learning. In this video you’ll see how to apply Harry Potter to homeschooling. In Harry Potter homeschool you can learn literacy, math, the arts, even entrepreneurship all through the lens of Harry Potter. This approach is not radical unschool it’s more of a child led homeschool. In child-led homeschool you teach through the child’s interest (in this case Harry Potter) as opposed to following a set curriculum. This Harry Potter curriculum culminated with a Harry Potter Birthday Party. In this Harry Potter homeschool curriculum video you’ll see how you can expand on your child’s topic of interest to learn everything.

5:09 – middle of the road approach
7:10 – You can learn everything through anything

Why Kids Need Risky Play (and how to feel safe encouraging it!)

The Parenting Junkie illustrates the importance of risky play. In this video you’ll learn why you need to let kids take risks and the benefits of risk taking in early childhood. The importance of risky play and adventurous play cannot be understated. Kids need to have risk in play in order to develop properly. This can seem daunting so you’ll also learn how to encourage risky play and still feel safe.

In addition to learning the benefits of risky play, you’ll learn the 6 categories of risky play by Peter Gray author of Free to Learn. After watching this you’ll feel much more comfortable allowing your children the unstructured play and risky play they need.

How to Help Your Children Take Meaningful and Reasonable Risks:
#1 – Stop Saying Be Careful [7:34]
#2 – Keep Your Own Feelings in Check [9:38]
#3 – Seek Opportunities for Risky Play [10:29]

6 Categories of Risky Play
1. Great Heights [11:05]
2. Rapid Speeds [11:34]
3. Dangerous Tools [11:56]
4. Dangerous Elements [12:52]
