Little Learners, Big Ideas: Little Learners and Literacy

Little Learners and Literacy

Learning doesn’t have to always take place in school or the home. As a matter of fact, it shouldn’t always occur in those places. Authentic learning can happen anywhere: the museum, the library, the backyard, the grocery. John Holt, author of How Children Learn, says, “There is no difference in living and learning…. It is harmful and misleading to think of them as being separate.” Learning in the real world provides children the opportunity to be curious about the world around them, to understand that they can learn anywhere at any time, to use new vocabulary, and to solve problems as they make sense of the world around them. It is also very engaging. Engagement is the key to learning. Learning on the Go gives parents and educators simple but powerful ideas to help their young child learn.
