Unschooling… Have you heard of it? Have you wondered what it really looks like? Has it piqued your interest from time to time? If you answered yes, you are in luck. Today we are getting an up close look at un-schooling. Believe me letting go of the “norm” and putting trust in your kids interests to guide you is HUGE. However, I’m a firm believer that sometimes this is exactly what you might need. Whether you adapt this style occasionally as a break from your normal homeschool routine or un-schooling is your everyday life. I am sure you’ll enjoy a look into how un-schooling can work in the real world.
Erin is an un-schooling mom of two nature loving kids and here is a peek into her homeschooling life.
Hello all, I’m Erin… drinker of coffee, knitter of knits, and keeper of our home. I’m also a homeschooler! I home-school our 8 year old son and have done so for the past 3 years. We also have a 3 year old daughter who, although too young to actually “homeschool”, still wants to do everything that her brother does. Our style of homeschool is probably best described as eclectic and un-schooling. I, however, see our homeschool as simply following our children’s interests, while keeping their curiosity sparked and their love of learning alive and bright. Our homeschool is filled with nature walks, music, and books! That’s my romanticized version of our home-school at any rate. The reality is that most days I’m just trying to keep up with our children as they bounce from one subject to another with 1,000,000,001 questions that need answering, combustible energy that needs burning, and endless books and experiments strewn all over our home.
