This summer we have been using the "Unschooling" Method of learning. With this method, you follow the interests of the child. If the child is interested in the Titanic you find non-fiction and/or fiction books about the Titanic, visit the Titanic Musuem, watch documentaries, create Titanic art projects, etc. Once the child is satisfied with that subject you move on to the next area of interest.
One of the things Connor wanted to learn about this summer was money. We have been learning the different coins and bills, how to count them and how to make change. Today we went to Walgreens on a field trip so he could practice his new moneys skills. Connor took $3.00 + $.25 (for sales tax) out of his piggy bank and then we went to Walgreens. Connor has made friends with one of the cashiers at Walgreens and she was very willing and happy to help with our field trip. Thank you Ms. Dana!
