The Teachable Moment

When I was going to school to get my teaching credential

(which is NOT needed to homeschool in California, if you are wondering) ,

one thing they emphasized is what is called the

“teachable moment”.

Basically when something cool comes up – make it a lesson regardless of your “plans”,

when something tragic happens, like 9-11, make a lesson regardless of your “plans”

– it’s using the unexpected as a lesson

– and these usually turn out to be the best lessons of all!

Sharing is caring!
