We decided to go on a shopping spree for our community’s food shelf, as it gets bare this time of year. The kids decided how much they’d contribute, what they’d buy and how much of it they could purchase within our budget. It was neat to watch them go back and forth between the aisles analyzing cost, budget, and quality of nutrition. I just stood back and took pictures;)
I believe this was a perfect example of unschooling — a controversial subject that’s received a lot of flack lately. And although we also did reading, language, history, science and piano lessons, the shopping spree was probably today’s most valuable activity.
