-Getting started earlier so we are not still working on a lot of stuff after lunch...not too early now! We had been starting at about 9:30...
Here is my proposed schedule:
- 7-8 am- get dressed, eat breakfast, clean up a little
- 8-830 am- Bible reading time
- 8:30-10:30 am-schooltime
- 10:30-10:45- snacktime
- 10:45- 12:30- more schooltime
- 12:30-1 pm- lunchtime!
- 1pm-2pm quiet reading time
- 2pm- finish any extra schoolwork!
-More internet time for the boys...Starfall and Spelling City
- Plan field trip days every 2-3 weeks
-Some sort of PE
-And the most exciting thing so far...Lapbooks!
I am so excited about the lapbooks! I did some research on the internet about them and I am really excited about doing them with the boys! I was a little worried about how we would do that on top of all their regular subjects but then I thought about doing them with their textbooks! Instead of doing History and Science we are going to make lapbooks for each chapter and learn about them that way! I have a dinosaur one planned for Jackson and a Fruits of the Spirit one planned for all of them to do. I am still brainstorming for ideas for one for Aidan...
So although we started out rough...I am looking forward to the coming weeks when I finally have my act together and the kids are actually having fun AND learning!
