Hi :D Thanks. You are gorgeous, by the way.I LOVE unschooling. Donovan loves it too. He would be finishing up 1st grade if he were in compulsory school & he reads at a 4th grade level; spells words up to fourth grade level; speaks basic German; does excellent with math - addition, subtraction, multiplication, measuring length. He is very social. We go to the park often and he makes friends easily with neighborhood children. He has a penchant for learning and he is very proud of himself. I think it's easier for him to learn because he is not afraid of making mistakes; mistakes are how we learn and he doesn't have to worry about getting "bad grades" or having a classroom full of kids watching him when he works on answering a question. We have read everything from the Iliad to various Poe poems this year. I'd say go for it!The only teaching program we use is Singapore Math & we love it. I would recommend reading "The Well Trained Mind" by Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise; we follow the trivium method explained in this book.When I started homeschooling I thought, "What if I screw my kid up." But he is learning so quickly and effortlessly and he has such incredible social skills (he has friends he made at our neighborhood park that he calls and that call him to set up play dates! LOL).I hope you don't mind my long winded answer. I'm still getting used to this site and I'm not sure if there was a more appropriate forum to respond to your comment like PMing or something.Anyway, it's nice to "meet" you.
