Love for puddles

Spotting a mud puddle, picking stones of various sizes, arranging them by size, throwing them in the puddle one by one, analyse how big the water splashes for stones of different sizes, experimenting the same by standing at various distances from the puddle, experiencing joy AND every idea comes from the child but not from an adult instruction..
Isn't the child set free on her learning journey self-motivated?
And we complain about children not listening to or getting diverted from what the teacher says in the classroom.

Learning by living

This was the scene in our home some days back(keeps happening too). 10 mins after both kids woke up, they had an argument and me...
