I've been reading this book called The Unschooling Unmanual. It is a compilation of stories from families that unschool. The main idea of unschooling is to allow the child to naturally learn at their pace and about the things that interest them most. In this way, they retain the material because it intrigues them as opposed to lessons taught on irrelevant subjects to the child. I love this idea of natural learning and child-led learning and although I would say we are eclectic homeschoolers, a part of me still hangs on to traditional ways of teaching and learning. BUT I've decided to give this method a try, inshaAllah! We will continue with our studies throughout the summer but I'm going to allow my children to choose what they would like to learn about anything and everything! So, I told them to make a list of things they want to learn how to do or make, some places they want to go and some subjects they would like to know more about. Feel free to print out our Summer Learning Goal sheet!
