Turning Unschool Learning into Homeschool Records Notes

Why would I want to turn something as unique and wonderful as unschooling into routine homeschool records notes?

I wish I could take delight in my daughters’ learning without ever thinking about homeschool records. Unfortunately, that’s not possible. I always have to keep one eye on the records book so that my unschoolers can fulfil the necessary homeschool registration requirements . While my girls are busy learning, I have to do a lot of behind-the-scenes work.  I have to translate all their unschooling learning experiences into the right educational language.

In this week’s podcast, episode 96, I share

  • how I turned some of my 13-year-old daughter’s recent learning experiences into notes for my Evernote homeschool records book
  • a lot of the resources that we have been using

So I’m wondering if you also have to keep homeschool records. Do you like Elvis? And what about board games? Do you have a favourite?

    It was so nice to hear you again Sue. Now that I’m finished, I don’t know what to say, there was so much content! I enjoyed your long walk story, I’m not sure how we would have handled a 10km walk, we are not as fit as your family! Are you still running each morning? How far do you go these days?
    Gemma liked the sound of your worldly treadmill, it must make for a much more interesting exercise session, running around Stonehenge!
    Thank you as usual for all the links and the effort you put into each and every podcast.
    Happy Birthday Sophie!

      We’re not running before breakfast at the moment because it’s cold and dark at that time of the morning. Instead, we’re enjoying some virtual runs on the treadmill. Yes, it’s interesting running in different places around the world. The other day, I ran through an African safari. This afternoon I’m going to Poland! My average run is between 5 and 6 km though sometimes I do run further than that. But I don’t run 10 km each day like Gemma-Rose!

      I love sharing links to resources. I hope you find something useful and interesting in this post’s resources list.

      Thank you for Sophie’s birthday greetings and for listening to my podcast!
