Though our unschooling family doesn’t go back to school, we do hit up the back to school sales in order to stock up on various supplies. Composition books, surprisingly, have been one of the most sought after supplies. My children do all sorts of things in their composition books and go through numerous ones each year.
There has been no need for me to sit down with them and explain how to write properly. They are quite capable of learning how to write without tedious instruction from someone else’s agenda. I’m sometimes asked how to spell certain words, but unless they want to show me something in their notebooks, I stay out of it.
