Here’s an interesting take on the education system:
We’ve got two official homeschool days under our belt this week!
Now that I’ve been doing this for a few years (Ayden is in 7th!!), I realize that it’s really up to me how crazy I let myself get.
Really, because if you let it, homeschooling can drive you insane lol
This year, I feel more organized and patient than ever and so far, I’m seeing immediate results of that! The kids and I have gotten all the lesson plans completed (that’s amazing) AND, the schoolwork/chore/rewards system is a huge hit!
Yep, I’m bribing them to be cooperative – and it’s working!!
Here’s a few pics from my iPhone this week:
That’s the prize suitcase and the “bucks” I pay them with at the end of the day. They can purchase snacks, stickers, chocolate, toys and cinnamon toothpicks. There’s some bigger prizes too that they can save up for like a mermaid, generic barbie or a nerf gun.
Elaine Grace being an awesome laundry folder (2 bucks lol)
The kids are even willing to pick up dog poop in the yard (5 bucks)
The day before our lessons, we grabbed a few ant theme books at the Brookville library.
It was chill time…
Until that ridiculous chair tipped over backwards and then it was laugh time 🙂
SuperGirl Marlie Paige also made an appearance!
I’m expecting LOTS of fun this school year!!!
