Homeshooling/unschooling... life learning...
It's that time of year again...
I've stopped writing out weekly lesson plans for homeschooling, they worked well when Noah was younger but for the past few years (as he becomes more of an independent learner) the weekly scheduled lessons have flown out the window. They were just becoming a big waste of my time. Now we're happy to relax and take it one day at a time... oh, but there is learning going on all the time; wonderful learning for the both of us!
Co-op classes for fall: Stage Crafting, Medieval Times, Computer Game Design, Writing.
Hopefully archery will start again. He'll be doing tech work for the local family theater; next play is The Giver. Maybe taking an art class.
We're thinking of starting a Real Life Math group with just a few families joining us. I'm just not sure if I have time to do this with working on planning the Co-op witner classes, teaching a Mixed Media and Altered Art class and starting to work part-time for Autumn.
Home interest: We've ordered the National Geographic Magazine and the Smithsonian Magazine. Browsing through these always leads us down paths of interest.
Building amazing worlds on Minecraft.
Using writing prompts and book reviews to write on his blog.
I do believe it's time Noah works on some more life skills this fall. So we'll spend some time cooking, cleaning, learning how to work on a household budget and such.
Loads of library books, documentaries... and I'm going to be looking for a few adventures to throw in here and there. I hope we have enough to keep us busy~
Have you made your fall homeschool plans yet?
