Homeschool Worksheets are not for Unschoolers

The girls took it easy most of the morning. We did try to go walk around the lagoon by the library to play with the bubble wand that we got, but it was way too cold. We came back and did some homeschool worksheets with LOTS of complaining. I have decided that we are done with homeschool worksheets for a long time, they did them too much in a normal school. Unschooling is all about learning with the resources around you not doing what normal school kids do.

Why I believe Worksheets are a waste of time

I have come to realize, that teacher use worksheets just for busywork. They are unnecessary and not worth the time, money or stress of dealing with the kids. This is why we Unschool so we don’t have to follow what “normal kids ” do in school. I am learning that there are so many fun ways to learn the same thing. We do games, sing songs, watch a video or listen to a podcast. I have been searching the internet looking for anything to help us on our new adventure.

Gymnastics

These are very blurry pictures of the girls doing gymnastics – They started last night.

The funny thing is at one point they were hanging on a bar, and they had to keep their feet off the ground and chin above the bar and hang on till one dropped. Belle won twice, but Mac made it all the way up to the ceiling when she climbed the rope.  Belle could only make it to the second knot.  Mrs. Jamie said they did really well for their first time and maybe within a year or so we can start competing. That is still under discussion they have a long way to go.
