We’re thrilled to announce the latest resource from Classical Conversations®, Scribblers at Home: Recipes from Lifelong Learners! Intended to equip homeschool parents of students ages 4-8 with at-home readings and exercises, Scribblers is the new homeschooler’s key to inspiring young students to embark on the exciting journey of lifelong learning.
Scribblers makes learning so tangible, especially for new-to-classical-education families; it is a great at-home resource! It provides a springboard for learning and talking to your kids; it provides a good starting point. I feel like it encourages flexible thinking and creativity.”
What Is Scribblers at Home?
First, this is not a 24-week program like Foundations or Essentials. Rather, Scribblers is a physical resource designed to give parents of little learners guidance, but also freedom while learning at home. With over 250 pages of step-by-step activities, charts, ideas, and how-to’s, this book spurs education in the everyday, enabling you and your child to foster a lifelong love of learning.
Although this is a Classical Conversations product, you do not need to be a Classical Conversations member to purchase or use Scribblers. Also, there is no weekly, local Scribblers community day like there are with our programs.
Rather, Scribblers is simply a homeschool resource for parents of children ages 4-8. Week-by-week, it approaches easy-to-follow activities in a way that encourages families to find magic in the mundane as kitchens become classrooms, backyards become laboratories, and parents and children begin simple rhythms and habits that lead to family atmospheres where learning is natural and beautiful.
My first reaction with [Scribblers] was, ‘Oh, here’s the glue — here’s where it all comes together.’ And from having a four-year-old, I can know upfront what is the goal, what is the purpose… I don’t have to wait until Challenge A for it to start to make sense.”
When to Expect Scribblers at Home
Last year, we sent a pilot version of Scribblers at Home: Recipes from Lifelong Learners to a test group of Classical Conversations members. The positive feedback we received was overwhelming!
Still, there remain several tweaks here and there that must be made before the product is ready to ship to families with little learners. With that said, we are on schedule to release Scribblers this coming Spring, 2023. This resource has been a years-long effort here at Classical Conversations, and we want to make sure it exceeds expectations upon release.
We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date with all things Scribblers via our blog and social media accounts. So, if you’re interested in using this new resource to help guide your at-home learning, be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook.
