Unschooling and a Bloody Nose

 

Good morning. It’s Friday and I am ready for it!

Our first unschooling week went pretty well. Way less stress for her and for me. We did have one incident though. Miss Chloe was playing with one of her sensory toys and before I knew it she slipped on it and fell face first onto the tile floor. She busted her nose and lost a baby tooth. She was quite upset by the blood. She cried for about 20 minutes and then decided that her favorite movie would make it all better.

I made a card with 5 squares for stickers to get her to earn phone time by choosing 5 activities to do. I laid them on the table and she chose the 5 she wanted to do. She chose Bible time while drawing, word stamping with her letter stamps, stringing beads, reading “I” statements (I brush my hair with a hair brush), and a nature basket with a magnify glass. She was very excited when she earned her phone time.

Later in the day we read books together and she played her Jumpstart computer game. I also filmed her learning to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich by herself for my YouTube channel. Chloe is really enjoying our new routine. I hope next week goes as well as this one has.

Thank you so much for reading my blog today. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend.
