Our place on the unschooling spectrum is offer various opportunities to our kids. If they are interested, we go ahead, if they are not interested we drop it. For example, I recently showed starfall.com to my son then said no more. He asks to play the letter game a few times a week and already knows most of his letter sounds.
He will be 5 in about 6 weeks. On top of being unschoolers, I also believe in delayed academics. There's no hurry in doing academics at this age. Let them play.
So I am struggling trying to decide if I should introduce my son to miquon math. On one hand, he is very bright and likes learning so why not introduce it to him and see if he's interested. If he's not, then no biggie and I'll drop it for now. On the other hand, he's barely 5, why hurry on introducing him to math?
Like I said, he is very bright and he loves learning new things. I sort of had this struggle over phonics and he is loving figuring out letter sounds.
What does every one think? AND, if not miquon math, can you think of a different math program to introduce him to? Maybe a math website similar to starfall?
