Follow along on a homeschooler’s journey

If you’re interested in alternatives to traditional schooling, head over to the Smart blog and read a post from Joan Concilio.

She just began homeschooling her daughter, Sarah.

Here’s a bit of what Joan has to say:

“We fall into a growing group of homeschoolers who ‘go with the flow’ – often called unschoolers, but also ‘child-led learners,’ ‘relaxed homeschoolers,’ ‘interest-directed learners,’ ‘lifetime learners,’ or any number of other terms.

The idea is simple: We don’t use a particular curriculum. We don’t separate ‘school time’ from ‘the rest of the time.’ We learn about what Sarah’s interested in, we share OUR interests, and we do it all as a family.”

Read her post and check back – she’ll be contributing to the Smart blog weekly!
