We are doing some non-traditional school this week in our non-traditional school. We're taking a break from the books, the math, history and science. Sort of. The changing of the clocks around here can really mess us some little ones. And me. Our tummies are hungry at the "wrong' time; we're sleepy, or not, at the "wrong"time. So since we've been hitting the books pretty hard for 9 weeks, I thought it was time to take a little breather. Not stop 'schooling' completely - although the girls think we have. They even expressed amazement when I said there was nothing on their schedule.
I wrote out some suggestions on what I want us all to do this week - things like sewing lessons, cooking lessons, art, photography; things that we don't normally do in a school week.
Finally I had them type up an 'explanation' of their collage photos - why they took them, why the item represents a certain family member. I am hoping to print them out and display them somewhere.
