Some learning activities are better than others

So today we took some time to investigate various online curricula for the kids. I can say that without a doubt some of the online early education curricula are appreciated more than others by my two youngsters.

I am on twitter a bunch, and can be found looking at posts for online curriculum sources made by others, and checking them out. I think I've signed up for accounts at at least a half dozen to maybe a dozen sites and I have to say I couldn't tell you off the top of my head of those that were less memorable than others. I do have my munchkin rating system though – is something thumbs up or thumbs down. Right now, this mom is in the dog house as yesterday's experiment yielded a double dose of thumbs down from both kids. To make up for it we are visiting the National Geographic website as well as sites from BBC and exploring Christmas houses that light up with music programmed in syncopation with the patterns of the lights.

Do they need to know that this little lesson in electricity is also part of their education?

Well I won't tell if you don't.
