After watching Julie Bogart of Brave Writer‘s periscope on The Enchanted Education (embedded video below), I was inspired to play around with Periscope.
(Note: Wondering, “What is Periscope”? Learn the basics here.)
She spoke about adding enchantment to your home education environment. The idea was….well…enchanting!
One nugget I took away from that talk was to see the “mess” in my house as a sign of enchantment.
Now, I have given this a lot of thought and this is not to say that shoes kicked off on the floor instead of put in their place isn’t mess. Some messes are mess and should be cleaned by the child who created it…ahem.
But other messes are part of our enchanted activities. Unfinished lego projects and half-completed puzzles can drive me crazy, but I began to step back and see them as part of our enchanted environment.
So, one random morning, I decided to talk a walk through my house on Periscope and show our “enchanted mess”. It was a pretty clean day other than our art room. I filmed our legos and the puzzle pieces and the messy school table. Then I shared how I was trying to see it as an enchanted space instead of a messy house.
It was my first #enchantedscope, #homeschoolscope, and first periscope. I would change a lot about it and do it so differently now, but you have to start somewhere and this is where I started.
I hope you’ll be inspired to join the conversations in periscope. Perhaps watch Julie’s video (second video below) or mine (first one below) and be inspired to share your own #enchantedscope. I’d love to see it!
