Stuck for ideas!
N lets us know what she would like to learn about.Our topics tend to last a month,but recently she has struggled to keep interest in her chosen subject. Quite often she will love to listen to stories,or do the more practical things(science experiments seem to be favoured over written work). Today we read stories about different Greek Gods and heroes,spent a little time doing some work sheets,but other than that she has lost interest. So,I have written up a list of life skills that I think she will benefit from.Things like taking out the rubbish bags,helping to sort through the recycling,loading and switching on the washing machine…
When I was a kid I was taught how to do the basic stuff.I wasn’t home educated,but I still spent a lot of my time at home(or out) learning about life. I left home at 18 and was glad to be able to know how to fix the basic things around my own house,cook pasta and know how to clean my clothes!
Tomorrow is our play day.We are meeting up with my mother-in-law,and going to have lunch and let the kids play at our local indoor play area. Socialisation is important to children,and adults too,but we tend to hibernate a bit more during the bad weather months. Looking forward to spring and summer,though!
