Homeschooling & neighborhood

     

FAMILIES PROJECT

Hello homeschooling & unschooled families! … Or any other curious families about learning outside of school 🙂

WELCOME FOR A SHORT TIME, LONG TIME OR ALL YOUR LIFE 🙂

WE ARE CREATING A NEIGHBORS NETWORK OF CONSCIOUS LEARNING.

WHAT WE BELIEVE IN RESUME IS…

Self Initiated Learning
Children choosing freely where to engage. Adults are there for support.
Knowledge availability
Adults sharing their passions and knowledge through workshops/activities they propose for children and other adults. Adults bringing children to their places of learning interest such as museums, libraries, nature, experts, theater, projects…
Needed support and Guidance
Family and other supporters giving time to guide and assist children in what they need
Spaces for learning
Different spaces that provide conditions and tools that allow learning different kind of activities.
Needs being meet
One basic tool for action is listening everybody needs and help each other to meet them
Peaceful Environment
A peaceful atmosphere where we all aim to help each other on our journeys and processes
Cooperative Communication
Cooperative communication as a foundation to communicate peacefully and sharing about personal and group needs. For this we use the tools brought by Marshal Rosenberg. You can also see: non violent communication.
Holistic
Humans are holistic beings with certain intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual characteristics and needs. It is necessary to provide time and space to meet all these needs.
Alive
Learning related to what makes sense to learn at the present moment by necessity, curiosity or personal interest.
Nature Connection
As human beings we are also Nature. Re-find this link and respect for Mother Earth. Learning in nature and helping the ecosystem to recover.
Parents as an example 
Example is a very strong way of teaching both practically and energetically. By working on ourselves we are passing that to our children too.
Shared Tasks
Everybody helping in the needed communal living daily needs.

HOW WE ORGANIZE?

SHORT TIME NEIGHBORS
With families that come to be temporary neighbors we have a presentation circle to get to know each other a bit more. Depending the modality on wich the family is coming: just enjoying the spaces and some activities together or also helping with hands on the project to improve the spaces and food forest garden we will make our plan of each week. You can read about the conditions of each modality down in the text.

What to expect:
– Simple and organized spaces for learning and practicing freely ( if wanted guided by the parents) arts, games, gynastics, dance, yoga, meditations, making acoustic music, reading, writing, etc…
– Alentejo Nature field with lots of olive trees and open air
– Some organized activities in the week
– At least one family to interact as neighbors with a seven year old very friendly, sociable that speaks fluent Portuguese and English
– We try in the weekends to exchange activities/help with other projects/farms of the neighbor community

What not to expect:
– Some one to take care of your children (although volunteers may be here to support).
– Everything perfect. Tribodar makes part of a non-profit association and all work is done by volunteers and contribution of the parents. Feel this space as yours and as much as you enjoy it help also to improve it 🙂 .

What to Respect:
– Living the spaces clean and organized. We call it “0” point: things coming back to their places.
– If your family breaks or looses something it is your responsibility to replace it or repair it
– Sending an email to tribodarviva@gmail.com in advance describing your family interests, needs and in wich modality you are coming. Also like this we can let know other families that you are coming. Be very very welcome 😉

LONG TIME NEIGHBORS (resident neighbors)
Resident neighbors
With neighboring resident families we connect and we organize ourselves flowing according to the needs of each one. We organize interactions, activities that children choose, activities that we adults propose, projects with from start to finish and “letters and numbers” trying to get the most out of everyday life. Welcome to join and help grow this network that will become stronger and richer with you! 🙂

What to expect:
– Simple and organized spaces for learning and practicing freely ( if wanted guided by the parents) arts, games, gynastics, dance, yoga, meditations, making acoustic music, reading, writing, etc…
– Alentejo Nature field with lots of olive trees and open air
– When other families present kids enjoying to play, learn and create freely with each other.
– Maybe some organized activites (you can follow the activities on https://www.facebook.com/groups/tribodar/)
– Forest garden with vegetable beds that families can use for own profite by a certain amount of hours working the garden.

What not to expect:
– Everything perfect. Tribodar makes part of a non-profit association and all work is done by volunteers and contribution of the parents. Feel this space as yours and as much as you enjoy it help also to improve it.

What to Respect:
– Living the spaces clean and organized. We call it “0” point: things coming back to their places.
– If your family breaks or looses something it is your responsibility to replace it or repair it
– Sending an email to tribodarviva@gmail.com with one/two days in advance. Also like this we can let know other families that you are coming.
– As we said before Tribodar makes part of a non-profit association and all work is done by volunteers and contribution of the parents. Every little contribution helps to improve the space and possibilities of Tribodar.
