I posted about our YMCA Homeschool Program earlier this year. You'll need to reference that post to see a small picture of the 22-acre facility where we hold the majority of our classes. This week, over the three days that we held class, I logged 40,000 steps.
|This was just Day 1!|
Our program runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Because my responsibilities require me to be out of the home more than my children, I have equipped them with several ways to complete their work.
I joked on Instagram that this is the working mom's solution to a Morning Time Basket for independent-learning teens. I made a Bingo card full of English/Language Arts activities and assignments for eight weeks. I stapled a couple file-folders together in lapbook format, and inside I included copies of everything they need to complete the card. The folder is portable. A completed Bingo card by October 31st wins a prize.
Our son ended the week with a canoe/camping trip to Lake Jocassee, South Carolina. We have heard Lake Jocassee called the Tahoe-of-the-East. He confirmed that the place is beautiful, and that we need to make a trip soon.
