When I brought up the question, “What do you want to learn?” with the kids last week, I was surprised by their answers. Or really, their lack of answers. Neither one really had any burning ideas of what they wanted to learn. This was surprising because I know they want to learn about millions of things, but the direct questioning was too much for them.
So instead of badgering them with my inquiry questions, I had to chillax a little and just pay attention. Observation, go figure.
Here are a few things they’d like to learn about right now, in no particular order:
- how to roller skate
- where the best sledding hill is in Denver
- why printed artwork looks different under a microscope than original artwork
- how to ski
- publishing a magazine
- running a Minecraft club
- collecting buttons
- making Flipagram movies
Luckily I’m interested in learning about most of those things too – the only one I’m skipping out on is skiing.
What do your kids want to learn about? How do you know?
