9.27.2021: Google very recently changed drive links for security reasons, so you may find that when you click on a link for one of my printables that you need to submit a share request. PLEASE only submit one share request per item! These have to be manually confirmed and I will get to them when I get to them. I promise you that sending me 12 requests in rapid succession will not make that happen faster, lol! I do not sit on my computer waiting around to send people instant shares of freebies. Thank you so much for your patience as I try to sort out this latest Google mess.

How Our First Switch Week Went…

…Or How One Switch Week in our homeschool Turned into Two.

Because that’s what happens when you have your planned switch week and then the next week all your kids get sick.

Joke’s on me!  Sarcastic smile

024Switch week is the week that we take a short break from our regularly scheduled studies and do something different.  It’s not a vacation, but a way to change gears.

This is a new thing for us and there are still some kinks, but overall it was a positive week.

Some things we did instead of the usual studies:

  • Art day:  water colors, drawing, and other crafts 026
  • Library day:  each child chose a topic they wanted to research---we had a colossal haul from the library that day
  • Field Trip day:  we had a picnic and spent part of the afternoon at Cunningham Falls Manor Park and Aviary

Most of our time was unstructured with lots of reading and play going on.

What I learned:  more planned activities are in order---the activities I planned took less time than I anticipated.

That’s always the way with fun stuff, isn’t it?  If it had been bookwork, it probably would have taken twice as long as I planned.
