When we speak of ‘homeschooling’, the most common notion is that education is limited inside the comfort of our home. On the contrary, homeschooling extends its varieties of self-learning, self-discovering and the introduction to general subjects like shopping, ordering food in a restaurant, interaction with people from all walks of life, and the latest we explore is the buying of groceries. In particular are the things that are to know in purchasing fresh meat, fish, etc based on our personal experiences and preferences from the local wet markets. Of course the time will someday come where choices and decisions have to be made on her own but for now, this is where her elementary of learning begins.
For me personally, I am not so specific on what I want to buy each time we go grocery shopping. I’ll have my shopping list then look for whatever is cheap; housewife instinct if that’s how we may call it. However my Mister operates differently. He just don’t look for the good bargains, but is it worth paying for the price regardless if the item is on special offer or not. I must admit, I’ve learned a lot from him especially when buying fish and the likes. Due to this, who’ll be the best ‘shopping teacher’ to our homeschooler but him.
And so it’s time for Jade to learn her Dad’s trade! ♥ The following snaps will probably give you the hints of the conversation (and the convincing) that might had taken place while choosing or buying the right shrimp. Price tags matter, too. In some cases, the most important details are hidden in smaller writings so it’s good to understand what those small writings are about. If they can save us some few bucks, why not?!
This will be the beginning of our Homeschooling Went Outdoor series, so keep visiting for more outdoor exploration. Next stop, maybe on how to choose the right ‘egg’ hahaha!
