I’m always interested in how others homeschool, so today I thought I would start showing you how we go about things. This is my eighth year of homeschooling. I started when Benjamin was in kindergarten; he is now in seventh grade. Both kids had short experiences in public school, but we learned quickly that public school just wasn’t the path we were meant to take.
I started out with a very traditional homeschooling method and that has worked well, but as the kids get older I find we are moving more and more to an unschooling approach in regards to science and history. Unschooling is basically a child led approach to learning. It is interest driven rather than book driven. I may not have the exact definition here, but that is pretty much the gist of what we do in those areas.
