Unschooling just happened naturally. When the child is interested in something you just run with it. Kids are naturally asking why and how all the time. We just take the time to answer. As far as records, at the end of the day you just write down what you covered.

For example, a young child's record for a day might look like this.

Math- Counting
(You don't have to put exactly what you did. In this instance we counted produce while putting it into the bag.)

English- Reading & Spelling
(Walking around the mall reading signs.)

Science- Gardening

Social Studies- Community Jobs
Visit to the Fire Station

Just find out what your state requires and provide the minimum amount of information that makes them happy. We joined a homeschool charter school and they take care of all the paperwork so we can focus on teaching. We meet with them once a month and they put our activities into the right language to meet the requirements.

My daughter is now in high school and isn't really unschooling as much. She does choose classes that she is interested in which helps to keep her love of learning alive. The unschooling she does do usually is extra now.
