Unschooling Update, feeling successful!

So far, I havent blogged much about unschooling. Neither of my boys are “school age”, but I’m so impressed how letting them lead in their learning is going.

Over a month ago, Brecken got a piece of paper and wrote a “B” on it…and it actually LOOKED LIKE A “B”!! He’s been interested in his name for awhile, and I’ve written dozens of “B’s” for him during the last several months.

He also drew a circle (and told me thats what it was), with out my assistance!

Now he is showing a great interest in reading, even though I’ve been less than diligent about reading aloud to him. He is wanting to know what particular words say,etc.

It has been a good, though unexpected, lesson in trusting in your childs ability to learn what they need to know, just like they learned to sit, crawl, and walk, when they were ready to do it.


About lisser

My name is Alyssa. I live with my husband and 2 young boys on our farm in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. I have been in the planning to launch a small scale farm from our acreage for the last 2 years. Much to my excitement 2010 brings the start of my dream to fruition. We are starting small, but will continue to grow as a valuable local food source in our community. We are an unschooling, attachment parenting family, with a love for the outdoors, and a passion for sustainable farming. I am a stay (and now work) at home mom. I enjoy reading, sewing, cooking/baking, canning and photography.
