 :)  One of my favorite things about homeschooling is how my kids get to experience things and learn things in ways I never had the opportunity to

Me too :-)

But I will say my fav school experiance was when my teacher told the whole class to take off our shoes and socks. She then led us out to the sandbox and taught us hands on about erosion. The was the BEST teacher. We even called her by her first name as did her kids (one of them was in our class,lol)

 I had a teacher like that in the 5th grade.  His name was Mr. Curtain and so much of what we did, we did "outside the box."  We "walked the solar system," did a radio play, made solar ovens, then made homemade bread (doing everything from sifting the chaff from the grain and grinding to mixing the batter), did an archeology dig and so much more.

I had a few great teachers like that, too, and I try to incorporate the things they taught me about teaching and learning into our homeschool experiences.

I would call that an interest in what sibling is doing. Catching a child paying attention is so awesome. :)

Man, Just how wonderful would Public School would be if every teacher had that type of passion about teaching!

There might be less homeschooled kids if there were. Unfortunately, there aren't many because they are all underpaid, overworked, and forced to teach to the test. That doesn't allow for a lot of creativity.
