Hello all, My child is a kinisthetic learner, and I find that she gets very bored and restless if there is too much structure. She loses interest almost immediately if I pull out a worksheet or have her work on a computer. The fewer senses involved in her schooling, the more she outright hates it. When I was a kid, I loved to learn for it's own sake. Not my kiddo. This has created a great challenge for me. When I set her up for school for the day, I have to incorporate as many tactile activities as I can. This is very difficult for certain subjects, and I also work from home and am single. So, I cannot spend hours every day setting up her activities and coaching her through them... I find Unschooling really appealing as an alternative to a rigid curriculum, simply because my daughter does a whole lot more learning (and retention!). It's not that I have removed structure all together, but I base it on her interests... I do still have her work on math and practice reading and writing in a similar fashion to the curriculums we've used in the past. As she goes through the rest of her day, she finds those tedious things useful occasionally, and is a lot more willing. Going to an Unschool philosophy has taken nearly all of the fight and stress out of school for us. I am dealing with particular circumstances though (her learning style as well as a very tight schedule and budget), so I don't know if this would be a good solution for every family. I was just hoping to start a discussion about it, and get/ give some feedback.
