You can take one day to take your kids to work and explore what you do. The idea of exploring what you do from 9-5 or in between homeschool hours can be a great learning experience for your kids. Today Aleli Cardo-Clarens (my daughter) walked the streets of Little Havana in Miami experiencing the day of taking pictures and exploring an area to prepare photographs for an article for Examiner.com.
We explored Futurama where Artist work and paint. We got to speak with Little Havana artist Agustin Gainza (www.agustingainza.com). She also spoke with the Ricardo Leal ( Founder of the Proyecto Multicultural Las Americas) and see the Little Havana Mural at La Esquina de La Fama ( 8 and 14th Ave) in Little Havana.
She took pictures and interviewed artisans in Little Havana.Aleli met the owner of Cuba Ocho in Little Havana and saw the diverse artwork in his collection. This was a day she learned all about doing freelance work and a bit of photojournalism. You can explore sites with your kids and teach them what it takes to be a journalist, writer or a young enterpreneur.Let them explore your career path or other opportunities.
You can let your kids get an experience like this in Wilkesboro and then get books to explore business and enterpreneurship with your kids. You can let them see what you do beyond homeschooling on a specific day. Check out all the possibilities with your kids.
So let your kids explore a typical work day or explore the ideas of freelance work. It can be fun and educational. Your homeschool family can also see more career books to explore at the Wilkes Public Library.
