When we do "fun school" I try to find all the things I would love to do but don't get to fit into our days because they are so full. I'm toying with the idea of doing this every Friday. I struggle with changing anything...ever. I just need to jump in and go for it.One of the new things I did this week was have the girls study current events. We have a subscription to World Kids, World Teen and God's Big World, which are Christian news magazines. They remind me of the news magazines I used to get in school as a kid, but with a Christian worldview. They usually read these just in their spare time, but this week I gave them a current events printable I'd found on pinterest to use to report about stories from the magazine. They really enjoyed this and I plan to make this a regular part of our week.
We also enjoyed some other fun things like Signing Time and some educational shows I've had stashed away, but haven't had a chance to show them. We also were working with some curriculum we are reviewing so you'll see more of those in the weeks to come!
So we had an off-routine week, but it was a good week. Learning occurred and Mama recuperated!
