So, I have a 4 year old ds. He is advanced per every scope and sequence I look into. With the soel exception of reading and writing. Well, originally this bothered me and I came here like I always do, and lurked. I noticed that it's normal for boys to read and write later and that the school timing is completely arbitrary and directly related to needing to grade students. So, I decided to just go with the flow. So to speak lol.
Ok, fast forward to today. We were at the library and there is a dry erase board. He asked to write on it, of course lol. He said he wanted to draw an N (first letter of his name) and he drew an almost perfect N. Then he wanted to draw an n but forgot how. So, I showed him. I asked how long he has been able to do this and he said "A while mama." I about fell over. My son had done everything to AVOID writing for me and here he volunteered a beautiful N and went on to the second letter of his name.
NOW I believe that unschooling can even work with writing, given the environment is set up for it. We have D'Nealian alphabets EVERYWHERE lol. I found a roll of 40 uppers and 40 lowers for desks and put them on the walls lol
