Hi, you have a novel approach, something like what I envisioned when I started homeschooling my daughter for 3rd grade last year. However, I did a lot of what you do and have felt guilty and inadequate for it, since I am not seeing her excelling academically. I just realized when I read your account of a day, that that's pretty much what we do. She and I both have started feeling frustrated that we are not "doing this right," and it helped me a lot to read your post. I'm going to quit obsessing over what she does or doesn't write in her workbooks, and instead encourage her in the areas she has always excelled in, namely being a generalist, being very nurturing and seeing a whole picture, a very social little girl, who makes friends easily, and loves to make up stories (whether she spells the words right or not). She has just asked me to let her begin oil painting with a real easel and painter's pallet. She actually requested also that we purchase a beret for her to wear while she paints. She has some aspirations of being a vet, so I have recently given in and allowed her to add a cockatiel and some turtles to our one-dog household. Anyway, thanks for the unwitting encouragement. It's nice to know I'm not "ruining" my child or hurting her by encouraging her to learn in her own style.
