Our Eclectic Homeschool Resource Summary – February 2017

  It's always fun to have a stickybeak into other people's homeschools, right? Here's what we're doing as of February 2017. Now, this is not ALL we do - this is just the more traditionally academic parts. We also do a lot of sewing, craft, and clothing design (in the last few weeks there's been a flurry of corset and hoop skirt making), cooking, strange physical things (currently, pogo stick challenges) and all sorts of other spontaneous activities.

A flexible, child-led homeschooling day in the life

Sara is an Aussie mum to two kids. She blogs at Savage Learning, and you can also find her on Facebook. This post details some of the many interesting things they do on typical days, plus their experiences with outside activities. Each January I take some time out to sit down and do some thinking and planning for the year ahead; I always check with the kids whether there’s any new activity they’d like to try, or what they did enjoy or not so much from the previous year. When we started homeschooling 3 years ago, we had a look…

Deschooling your Family - what it is, why you should do it, and how to start. From Fearless Homeschool.

Deschooling your Family

Deschooling can be defined as removing the influence of the formal education system from your way of thinking. Many children who have been in school will need time to adjust to their new lifestyle, and learn this new way of education. On a wider scale, nearly everyone in society has what could be termed a ‘school mindset’.

When you have educational freedom, then fitting yourself into any educational philosophy, even an alternative one, can be constricting. Think of homeschooling like a buffet restaurant. Each style is a specific diet. Maybe classical is vegetarian, so you’ll skip the meat. Unit study devotees are…

Project-Based Homeschooling | The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling Styles

Welcome to the eighth post in the Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling Styles series! Click here to view the rest of the series.   Project-based homeschooling is based on the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy. The philosophy developed in the city of Reggio Emilia in Italy after World War 2, with the work of Loris Malaguzzi, a psychologist. Still popular in schools, it is usually limited to preschool and primary school ages. It is less a method than an approach or philosophy. There’s no prescribed curriculum, or materials, or developmental expectations. You can’t train specifically to be a Reggio teacher, and anyone…
