I wanted to start the school year off with a list of my favorite items I use to Unschool. What Is Unschooling? Unschooling is a style of home education that allows the student’s interests and curiosities to drive the path of learning. Rather, than using a defined curriculum, unschoolers trust children to gain knowledge organically.
We all need a little encouragement at times. Just remember this is a new year. Most importantly, I suggest taking it slow. Remember, this is not a race and don’t try to compete with the “normal” kids down the street. Sit back and enjoy the process. Above all, if your child can read and do basic math. Your kids will be able to do anything they set their minds to.
I am required to add this: I may get paid if you click on the links below. I only add items that we use and approve of for Unschooling or homeschooling. Thanks for reading my blog.
My favorite PODCASTs
I love listening to a podcast while in the car. Unfortionaly, some are dry and boring but have loads of information. Keep looking and you will find your favorites.
Our favorite Unschool websites:
These are my kids’ favorite websites that we use for Unschooling. At the beginning of the school year, my kids set goals and then we find tools to help us accomplish those goals. As a result, we always look for classes online, co-ops we can attend, books, videos or mentors. Also, Facebook is a homeschool mom best friend. Furthermore, it is a great place to get answers, find co-op classes and learn about field trip dates or meetups.

Videos about Unschooling
These are just a few of my favorite videos about Unschooling. Seems like, there are many videos now on this and other topics. The best advice I have is to use your favorite search engine. Begin with the words “unschool, relaxed homeschooling or free life learning.” As a result, I hope this helps you with your adventure this year. In conclusion, let me know if you have a favorite website, podcast, or video. I would be happy to add it.
