Give thanks for life and another day of blessings! I promised a Sistren a list of webpages that are great for the youts while they are home whether being homeschooled or not. These sites have tons of learning activities that will allow them to spend time wisely and productively! They are all free except the first one.
Homeschooling is a part of RasTafari Livity because it has been proven that the enemy should not be allowed to raise and teach our youts on a daily basis - it is leading to the death of the young Black community through disease, gangs, drugs and mental degradation to name a few. Being anti-Babylon means that I and I are separated from them in as many ways as possible for InI. Ideally, and in the first creations of RasTafari autonomy namely Pinnacle and Bobo Hill, in everything RasTafari are to stand apart from Babylon - dress (we wear the royal robe or full covering and turban), food (we are supposed to be not just vegan but food producers), settlement (we are to live in the hills or country not concrete jungle) and spirituality and learning (become self taught to learn the hidden truths).
RASTAFARI are a SEPARATED PEOPLE. Dwelling away from society does not mean that InI neglect our children's education and just let them learn physical trade or planting (though such will allow them to provide for themselves and a family). It means that we take a very large interest in developing and nurturing their minds - teaching them academics as much as how to live in JAH's Iration. As parents InI have to be keen and livicated to their future as adults and leaders. It is not always possible for most of InI to truly separate in all of the ways I mentioned, not every I can live in the hills and plant the land, and many RasTafari have worthy talents and professions in urban dwelling which still are good works in their place.
So no matter what type of place you live, or what you do, homeschooling is the RasTa Mama's duty in any little way you can do it - teaching manners and the fruits of the Irit for example are homeschooling, teaching how to grow a flower or a vegetable is homeschooling, teaching your yout how to sew a skirt is homeschool, helping them write stories or reading a book together is homeschool. We have to look at our children and see what they need, what they respond to, and nurture those desires and imaginations. Even if they sometimes act like they aren't interested in something, never give it up. It will happen at the right time, and over time you will get the rewards of your child's learning.
And in that line of thought...
I have really been considering starting a Rastafari Mother's Homeschooling blog of sorts where I can post information such as these websites, and also share my lesson plans, my teaching ideas by subject, and more importantly my Rastafari themed worksheets and other worksheets. I really want to support the RasTafari Homeschooling community worldwide, but this is an undertaking that I will need other Sistren to contribute on: lesson plans, activities, pictures and worksheets, how to manage homeschooling multiple children, what your techniques and tricks are, how you get resources, how you plan your curriculum and samples of such - everything!
InI have to be serious and get organized just as the White community is - Australia and America I can think of. they always have their stuff together and they can make income while doing something so important. it is time RasTafari homeschoolers come together and form some kind of organization that can be both online and local chapters here in the West and in the East. Something that InI can use to fund raise and lead to the building of our own RasTafari learning centres where many of InI live together so that our youts can have a homeschool co-op community. I know that some Sistren already have access to such things where they live, please come forward and share what the I can!
Please message me if you are seriously interested in being a regular contributor to a Rastafari homeschooling blog - this is necessary my Sistren! InI need to support one another and make the RasTafari Wombman's presence known in the community!
On another note Look out for the Smocking Maxi Dress Tutorial that I will post here. It is already on YouTube.
RasTafari Blessings and Idance!
