Don't worry. I'm not cheating. I'm not counting this as one of Woody's posts. But maybe it could be a post for me, Teresa's number something or another, because the clarity of something I read this morning about unschooling shifted things around in my brain so that they lined up quite nicely. (And was a good follow-up to yesterday's fuzzy brain.)
What I read came from a blog written by an unschooled teenager, and it's called I'm Unschooled. Yes, I Can Write. Boy, howdy, she sure can. This entry is called "Unschooling: Are We Teaching Ourselves?"
My son Woody turned six in November of 2011. That would have been the kindergarten year for most kids, 180 days that mark the beginning of the school career. But Woody did his learning in the big, wide, beautiful world, without school being a part of it.
I'm Teresa Honey, and I kept this blog to document this time in my son's life, to share pictures and stories with far-away friends and relatives, and to add ours to the many stories of families living rich, engaging, loving lives with learning happening all the time and in many forms, totally inseparable from every other part of being human.
Here you'll find 180 or so learning moments recorded from August, 2011 to April, 2012 in the life of a 5-turned-6-year-old radically unschooled kid.
