Love the Idea of Homeschooling and Unschooling, but Still Find Yourself Worrying At Times?
- Do you live in an area where you are required to put together lesson plans or submit quarterly reports, and find it a struggle given your un-schooling or relaxed schooling style?
- Is your partner or family anxious about what’s being covered?
- Do you just know in your bones your kids are learning things, but find it hard to explain to others, or put into words?
- Or maybe your child attends school, but you want to cover some extras without your kids feeling like they never have time for fun?
Laura homeschooled her now grown kids using a primarily unschooling approach, coupled with a few eclectic, relaxed unit studies and the occasional curricula along the way. Now grown, they’ve found career success and happiness. In this book you will explore some of the fun activities and conversations that allowed them to wrap learning into the day naturally, and effortlessly – and quite often with lots of giggles and fun, as they discovered this is one of the best ways to learn and retain information.
This volume includes conversations, activities & games for learning basic and critical thinking skills for grades k-3 and beyond. Some of them you may use for many years to come, expanding upon them as your child grows into them.
The book includes a link to a website and pass-code to a private web-based app for a Story-telling Spinner Game: Your child can spin the spinners to be assigned elements from which to weave a story: A main character, a sidekick, a challenge, a nemesis, the object of that challenge, and a special skill or power they can use in creating a story – this can become an incredibly fun family past-time! (the spinner does include fantasy elements such as magical creatures and super-heroes). You can purchase the book now and receive the app code, the app itself will be available online on or about January 7, 2014.
