New blog post up (link in bio): there's a missing ingredient in schools that makes homeschool work...coming from a former Chicago teacher...it's a truth with a capital T. #homeschool #unschool #wildandfreechildren #autism #reallearning

I listen to a TED talk with Peter Gray and it blew my mind. I see the profound scheduling and stress of my friends and family in the school system. Homeschool has given us the time to play. I wish I could reverse the profound stress ultra-therapy and school put my oldest son under. #wildandfreechildren #unschool #homeschool #teachersofinstagram #freetolearn

I dusted off the old blog and shared my thoughts on deschooling today. Homeschool is a different beast, and the most beautiful and exhausting 'job' I have ever had. #homeschool #unschool #deschool #iteachtoo #teachersofinstagram #autism #hope #followthechild (3/26/15)

knowtheflowers : "Don’t worry, kids.  This isn’t on the test. There is no test. In life, the test is first, and the lesson second. In school, we have it backwards.  Teach the lesson, then test. Homeschool isn’t school, it’s life."
knowtheflowers : THIS. x1000000. πŸ™ŒπŸ‘πŸ‘β€β€β€
momnivoresdilemma : @knowtheflowers - guess I should put that on a bumper sticker??? ❀️
knowtheflowers : πŸ‘ and maybe coffee cups, tote bags and t-shirts πŸ™ŒπŸ˜

Homeschool at first terrified me. I didn't believe I had it in me. But now, two months deep into our second term...I see possibilities and hope. #autism #iteachtoo #iteachsped #fieldtrip #teachersofinstagram #homeschool #unschool #letthembelittle

Come as you are. As you were. Sometimes I forget who I was before being a mama. Before being a teacher. I have always been a reader, writer, and creative. I focus so much on the well being of my children and of my small business, that I often forget just 'me'. The me who is up before dawn, the me who has fought for years in the autism trenches....the me who still needs time to be and make and do...and that time has come. It's time to relax, restore, and renew. #homeschool #unschool #autism #iteachtoo #teachersofinstagram #wildandfreechildren (2/26/15)

I was working on the pink series with my 5 year old (who is a prolific reader) and after him yawning through CVC words. He busts out this gem, ironically in front of my cliche coffee mug.

abetterlifeblog : My son is 6 and he's the same way. Back in the fall we had just started homeschooling (he would be in public school K but we are doing 1st grade). Even though he's been reading since he was 4 were still trudging through 1st grade level reading lessons because I want to make sure he's got it. We were doing a lesson on "ar", "ir", "er" etc. and it got down to him filling in his own "at" words. The first word that pops in his mind? "Argentinasaurus" (yep it's a real name of a dinosaur). I saved that worksheet when he was finished with it. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ I love seeing their minds work outside the box.

Homeschool today means progress. My oldest son learned the art of laundry. My youngest learned to make hummus from scratch. I learned that lesson plans sometime get in the way of following the child. #homeschool #unschool #wildandfreechildren #homeeducator #iteachtoo #teachersofinstagram #schoolfree (2/23/15)
