The beauty of homeschooling. We practice a style of homeschooling that is called unschooling - no curriculum, no testing (except one big test at the end of the year), no grades, no text books - it’s pure learning outside of the box, inside of the box, and all around the box. And sometimes there’s no box at all. I call it a holistic education- skills needed to get through life. I want our children to WANT to learn, not be forced to learn. I want them to be curious, to ask questions, to seek information, to explore things and ideas when they are ready and interested in learning a new task or subject. Today, Ashlee was inspired to write down a poem by Maya Angelo. Learning from the masters. We are all each other’s teachers - babies, toddlers, children, tweens, teenagers, young adults, adults, the elderly, friends, relatives, siblings, neighbors, friends, enemies, etc. What did you learn today? Who helped you learn something new? Or did you figure it out by yourself? .
