Episode 003 is comin’ at ya’!  This podcast was such a delight to record with the lovely Pam Barnhill.  She shares so much wisdom with that southern accent of hers, you just can’t help but eat it up!  Pam and I got to talk all about how her family does morning time and how it is shaping their family culture and it was a true inspiration.  Here are some of the things we talked about:

  • How we met
  • How Pam transitioned from becoming a teacher to year book designer to professional blogger
  • All the fun that is podcasting (Pam has two!)
  • How Pam uses morning time with her kids

Books and such…

    I have become a devoted follower of the RAR podcast and really grasped onto a hook for reading aloud. So my public school kids come home and we have

    “Snack and Storytime”

    And everyone loves it. Mom AND kids. It kind of reminds mee oof the Morning Time.

    Heard about your through Crystal at MSM. Ooo…I want to listen to this one how non-homeschoolers can incorporate morning Time. Been listening to Pam’s morning time podcast. And been thinking how I can incooperate that with my 2 yr old daughter.
    We have a before nap routine listening to 2-3 audio stories from Jesus Storybook Bible and then read a few books. Really liking the routine and I look forward laying on a blanket with her listening to the audio stories before. Be fun to incorporate a morning routine. I think she does well.

    So I keep hearing read poems to your kids even starting at a young age. Can you help me understand that and the why?

      Nichole, I think this podcast of Pam’s does a really good job of explaining more about why poetry, memorization and good language matter- . Basically it helps expand your children’s vocabulary and abilities to read and interpret. It is a deeper level of thinking.

    I’ve started binge listening to your podcasts this month! I really love the non-home schooler tips for morning time! I’m going to start implementing one idea at a time. We have a 12 minute commute to school where we could get some quality poetry listening and prayer in!
