What is Unschooling?: Living and Learning without School

Children are born curious, creative, and wired to learn--and we value those traits in adults! So why, as our children grow up, do we often insist they change to fit into the education system, where curiosity is replaced by curricula, creativity by conformity, and learning by memorizing?

If you'd rather nurture your children's curiosity, creativity, and love of learning, let me introduce you to the world of unschooling.

In this short book, we'll explore some of the most common questions people have when they first hear about unschooling:

What is unschooling?

How will my child learn?

Without a curriculum, what will they learn?

How do I know they're learning?

Will unschooling work for my child?

But what if my child already has trouble at school?

What is deschooling?

How do I get started?

Life in the real world is much bigger and more exciting than a school can contain within its four walls. If you're ready to embrace life and eager to share its wonder with your children, unschooling might be for you!

Teachers' recognition, school rewards and parents' encouragements will maintain the momentum your child has gained in first grade. The question is how to get into the top rank to begin with.

Fortunately, it doesn't take much to move ahead of the curve. This book will help. School effectively teaches children fundamental concepts, and this workbook will broaden and deepen the fundamental knowledge through well-designed exercises. This book has 26 chapters, and each chapter has three sections: vocabulary, math/words problems, and reading/writing. Students may work on one chapter every one to two weeks to finish all the chapters before the end of first grade.

Teachers have permissions to copy and distribute pages from this book for classroom use.
