D&D is a format for collaborative storytelling. That makes it fitting content for the HVSS Players, who create collaboratively, grassroots style. They hired their own director, and they follow through on their commitments; they run on intrinsic motivation, and you can tell from their spirited storytelling. This weekend, they are presenting She Kills Monsters. Friday and Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 3pm. At Arts Society of Kingston. $12 tickets at the door - cash or check. #theatre#theater#sudburyschool#sudburyeducation#selfdirectedlearning#dd#shekillsmonsters#90s#artssocietyofkingston
I walked into our room to find the bed made up (not the weird part- Lil Dude makes the bed everyday on his own...I think I've made my bed like once in my entire life 🤷) but this time there were all these extra pillows and a bottle essential oil. I asked what that was about and he said, "I've been researching natural ways to decrease snoring, mom. This pillow goes between your legs, this one you hug, and essential oil goes on your neck before you sleep." 😂 Oh, man..
I guess my snoring has gotten really bad 😴😴😴. But yay for home education! #research#skills 🤓💻
This sign has spent most of its time hanging on Miss Teen’s door lately. When the sign goes up the rest of us know unless its super important she is not to be disturbed. #writeratwork
As we approach the 1/2 way mark of National Novel Writing Month #nanowrimo she is so excited to be progressing quickly thru her fantasy novel. She’s already hit the 30,000 word mark (goal is 50,000 word novel). I am blown away at her determination and dedication to meet this goal she has set for herself. While she has been prepping for months for November by creating her character profiles, creating a story line and even made a map of this whole fantasy world that this story takes place in. It’s nice to see it all finally coming together for her in an actual book format. I am blown away by the sheer incredible imagination that it takes to create this entire fantasy world that she has put together. I sometimes wish I could see what’s inside that amazing imagination of hers. I know as Im mom Im a bit biased but I am so incredibly proud of her and so happy to see that she’s already at 13 reaching for her goals. #authorinthemaking
The kids made weapons out of trash and then played battle. I also saw wands, dolls, boxes, Christmas trees, and tons of art being created today too. Having the freedom to create for play as they play was magical today. #austinlifelearners#selfdirectedlearning#makerspace
When you brainstorm guidelines for a student's reflection presentation as a consequence for a series of negative behaviors, you want to make sure it guides his presentation to the right place. #selfdirectedlearning#ExploringTheCore
This is what self directed learning looks like! Sometimes it's playing outside, reading books, learning about anew animal, cooking, making art....it can be an infinite number of things. I give her choices and opportunities and support her in the ways she wants to learn.
I don't have a regime or a definite plan. We explore what's around us and see where it takes us. #selfdirectedlearning#unschooling#zigzagalc @zigzagalc @sacred_journey_birth

Imagine a school...... What if education were preparation for life not tests?
Where no interest or activity is considered more important than any other. Where there are no bells to interrupt you and where you don't have to ask to eat or use the bathroom. Where staff speak to you as equals and where the only rules are ones you helped to make!! This isn't a dream... it's the reality of democratic education! 👏👊👏
Two years ago I embarked on this journey with other founding members and finally in January our hard work will have paid off. 🎉🎉 East Kent Sudbury School will open its doors on the 8th January in our first home in Margate! We will be Kents first democratic school and the UKs first Sudbury Model school. .
This project isn't just about the community we are currently creating, it is also about the passion we have regarding children's rights and talking about the change needed in our state education system. It serves to provide this educational choice to parents in East Kent but also to promote democracy in schools in general. Giving children, responsibility and most importantly a voice in decisions that affect them is only helping to shape the skills they will most certainly need as adults. .
We have been using Facebook and Twitter but have, only yesterday, created our new instagram page @eastkentsudburyschool. It's looking a little sad 😂 so please give us a follow and maybe a share and help us to bring this vision to life! 😊🙌 .

It makes a huge impact with a simple replacement of a word or even by switching our focus on actions instead of character and using empowerment instead of commands! 🙌🏼
Reposting @nurture_neuroscience @weareteachers with this clear awareness on COMMUNICATION that can be used with any relationship! 🙏🏼
The way we communicate with infants and children nurtures neuroscience! Language builds reward, stress and thinking areas in the brain. It can nurture and strengthen self confidence, self worth, emotional regulation and thinking. 💜🧠💜 #communication#neuroscience#nurturechildren#discipline#healthylifestyle#nonviolentcommunication#parenting#parenthood#parentingtips
Learning at home, afternoon break. Hot (oaty) milk and crispy kale snack while calling a dear friend over wifi and continuing a Minecraft build together. This collaboration has been enduring several weeks, with many mini-projects underway and difficulties overcome. The internet is a powerful tool in our learning and its exciting to see him use it for himself this way. Plus, it's a great opportunity to pass him vitamins 😏😎🥦🖼
This holiday season, instead of spending money on expensive toys that your little ones may get tired of after the first few days of receiving them, give a gift that gives you the best return of investment. ✨✨ A NEW book will be delivered to your door each month after you subscribe for a 6 month or 12 month subscription.

#goodmorning friends 😘. I've been struggling with making a major decision lately and I find it to be so draining 😥. As an ENTJ (The Executive) I am a great decision make at work, but when it comes to making personal decisions, I'm quite indecisive 😑. Also, as I learn and grow, I'm constantly reassessing why I do what I do and how I want to change now that I have more information under my belt. This involves quite a bit of discomfort (in an exciting, yet frightening way) as it's always pushing me out of my comfort zone. Anyone feel me on this struggle? How do you ease this process for yourself? I'd love to know what works for you ❣️
