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.

Magical Moments: The Inventor

It’s Magical Moment Monday, and today we want to share a poem with you, written by one of our students – Benjamin Harding, a Track B LMS student. Benjamin has an older sister, Virginia, in the High School program, and a younger sister, Evelyn, in Intermediate. His parents are Matt and Rosalyn Harding, and their family has been attending SLOCA since it’s very first year, making this their 8th year at the school.

Rosalyn shared that this poem was a school assignment, and that Benjamin chose to write about an inventor because he has always wanted to be an inventor. Since we are beginning our school-wide Invention Convention projects, we thought this was a very timely and appropriate contribution! 

The Inventor

by Benjamin Harding

His hands tinker constantly

His pants are oil-stained and patched

His eyes focus on the metal bent askew

His mind, boundless and intelligent, continually having new ideas

He dreams of contributing to the future

He is an inventor

Thank you Benjamin, for sharing your creation with us! We will all be inspired as we research our chosen inventors and learn about the exciting changes that these inventions brought to our world.
