1 – A schedule! OH how I have railed against the idea of a schedule! I am unpredictable! I need space to create! I can’t just do the same thing over and over again! Pfft. I did nothing. I have been completely predictable and uncreative. I need to CREATE space to create! And that is what the schedule does. No longer do I have to make decisions about what my kids may or may not do at any given moment. They know! Because it is (all together now!) On. The. Schedule. Bah.
2 – A well defined chore chart. Hooray! This one I love!! Simple chores are getting done and I am not the only one doing them. Hip Hip, Hooray! Hip Hip, Hooray! Hip, Hip, Hooray!
3 – Looping school subjects – there are things I want to hit every day (Math, Religion and Handwriting) but what to do when I can’t promise on History, Science, Geography, Grammar etc? LOOP! Oh, we did History last time? Science it is! Okay, it’s a little more complicated than that, but it’s WORKING.
Still coming…..a post on the resources we’re drawing from this year!
