Good Afternoon Friends!
It’s Friday afternnon and we are relaxing. I’m posting this and Chloe is drawing on her MagnaDoodle. Fridays are Unschool days in our house. Chloe still has a schedule and activities to do, but no have to school work.
I will lay out activities on the kitchen table in case she wants to do them. I don’t make her do them. It’s all a choice. Today she has played with her Kinetic sand, done puzzles, drawn on her magnadoodle and her chalk board, plus read books with me. Plenty of learning in all those activities. I decided to make Friday unschool days for both of us. She gets a break and gets to choose what to learn about and I get a break to catch up on housework, blogging, and lesson planning.
Once we move, in 8 days, I will incooperate more unschool days in our schedule, until we both get settled. I know Chloe will have some anxiety about the move and I don’t want to force homeschool on top of that. We will be setting up our new home and I want her to feel as laid back as possible and help me set up her room. I want it to be fun for her.
So that is what we do on Fridays. Unschool and relax. Do any of you take “Unschool” days?
