Re: Unschoolers~~~ Can you give me some insight? Considering loosing the curriculum

We just do a little bit of 'school' with my 4 1/2 year old when he is inclined to do it. Like if he says "I want to do some school", I will get out my daily book and pick something. He is learning his letters slowly and I am not pushing anything. We are kinda loosely going by the Waldorf principles which don't force learning, especially at this age. He spends his day helping with the tasks, along with reading and learning things like measurement. We don't really 'have' to do anything since he was never in the school system yet, so we are just going to live by impulse of what he is interested in.
