I'm mixing things up a little this year. I am going out side the box and doing a lot of my own curriculum. I am using My Father's World as our main source but am branching out to keep it fun and interesting for all of us. I recently was introduced to "life learning." At first I thought there was no way it would work for our family. Being that I was raised in goverment schools it is hard to break that mind set. Life learning is a self directed way of learning. I plan on doing a lot of life learning this year too. I really want to get to know my children and what they are interested in. That way I can gear them in what they like. Don't get me wrong we will still be using plenty of curriculum. I am not that relaxed and am to afraid to let go of the text books. I need direction and schedules and so do my kids. What are your thoughts on "Life Learning" Do any of you take this approach on teaching your children?
