Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because, in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

Semper discentes—always learning together.

I Wonder Why…

“Why do camels have humps?” “How do you make plastic?”  “Why are my eyes brown?”

Do you often hear questions like these?  We long to honor and nurture our children’s curiosity, but it can be difficult finding time to research and answer such questions.  

Amanda Soule, in her new book The Rhythm of the Family, suggests an “I Wonder Why” bulletin board where questions are posted to be researched and possibly answered at a later date.  What a great idea to let our children know their questions are welcome and it addresses the more practical matter of remembering to answer them.  If you don’t have space for a bulletin board, what about putting questions in a jar, a pretty bowl, or hanging them from a tree branch?  There are many ways to easily incorporate an “I Wonder Why” space into our homes.
