So last night as I tucked the kids in to bed one of my daughters said.
‘Mummy, I want homework. Could you give me a project, make me do it and if I don’t do it be really mean to me?’
We both laughed.
Then the other two chimed in ‘Yeah, me too, me too!’
What I gleaned from this is that they are hungry to learn, they want something to do and they want to be challenged. They also want me to stick to a boundary to make sure that they finish their projects. Which is kind of contrary to the unschooling philosophy but it comes from them, so it is all good. I am following them in their learning.
So late last night I wrote a list and it goes like this.
15. Research the pyramids in Egypt and see how they were built then re build them in Minecraft.
Then the kids gave me a project.
Draw a cat that has all the characters and personalities of our six cats combined with in it. (GULP!)
These were the ideas I proposed, please feel free to use any of them for your kids if they inspire you and let us know how you got on. I shall report back from our end soon and let you know what happens from here.
