Here's a little peek into just a few of the things I did this week:
The schedule is done & posted:
You'll notice that all of the academic subjects are in white. That is so that they can be moved by Tyson. One of the things I taught him this year is how to "eat the frog." Some days he wants to get the worst stuff done first (i.e. eat the frog) and some days he prefers to put it off until later. Either way, it helps him to have a little control over his day.
I have a few spare subjects on the other side of the door:
Also, I reworked the chore lists. Riley now has a list of his own, and they are both posted on the fridge daily:
I also put together Tyson's summer reading folder. He has so many papers for this subject that this one needed its own folder. Since we won't be doing a lot of worksheets this summer, I don't think he'll have a folder for any other subject.
- Summer Reading Club Log for our local public library
- Our own summer reading log to track book titles, minutes, etc.
- Summer Reading Log for school
- Recommended books for summer reading (from school)
So, do you read a lot in the summer? How do you encourage your kids to read?
