Unschooling from Birth to Early Elementary
Are you considering homeschooling or unschooling? Are you unsure what these terms even mean -- or what it would be like, day to day? Do you *want* to homeschool, but aren't sure when or where to begin? Unschooling From Birth Through Early Elementary is your guide. In the introduction, we'll walk you through what "unschooling" means. (It's not all radical!) Plus, it's entirely possible to unschool for the early years, and still choose a different educational path when your child reaches school age. It's not either/or. The nitty gritty: Early childhood is broken down by age -- 0 to 2 years, 2 to 4 years, 4 to 6 years, and 6 years and beyond. For each age, there's a guide to what developmental milestones you can expect your child to meet, and how to best stimulate their learning. Each age comes with an activity suggestion guide, plus a list of materials. Throughout the chapters, you'll find some information and advice from a mom of five who's been there -- her kids range in age from 7 to "coming this summer" and she's walked through this early unschooling journey with all of them. Not sure if you want to homeschool -- or know you won't, but want to supplement your child's education at home? The activity suggestions are valuable for you, too. It's not an all-or-nothing approach. These are great ways to teach your child, enjoy your child, and engage your child no matter what you choose for "school." Any child can benefit from an involved parent!
