This week wasn’t as great as I thought it would be for school. We got things done but I was hoping we would get more accomplished. There is always next week. What we did do this week:
- Co-op classes “Nervous System”
- End of Year Soccer Party
- Workbook work
- Easy Peasy Online School
- Math drills each day
- Homeschool Parents Meeting
- Ice Skating
- Chiropractic Appointments
- State Police Field trip
- Orthodontist appointments
- Monthly shopping
- Wood burning
- Worked on the mending pile
- Boys did their brothers brakes and axle on his Subaru
- Free gym time
- Bible Study
This year we have an actual classroom area. Some years we have only used the dining room table or desks in their rooms. This year we are doing the Easy Peasy online school which requires computer use. It was a pain to put away and take out all the laptops each day so we changed things around a little bit.
Our living room now is also the classroom. Each child has a desk with his/her computer on it and also their respective school books.
The only child without her own computer is Princess. She uses Directors computer when it is time to do her schoolwork. I try to have her done and off that computer before Director is even reading to do school. Doesn’t always work but I try 🙂
Do we like it this way?
I like that they have a place for all there things and the put away take out each day is gone. They like it because they can use computers each day and their schoolwork is right there for them.
We don’t like that it takes up over half of the living room. The pros out way the cons though.
How do you do school? Do you have a classroom set up? Leave a comment and let us know.
