Last week we had our first C.H.A.T time with teachers and parents. We’ll be having more, and they are open to the home school community at large.
A very brief recap follows.
We discussed ways to keep our kids engaged during these next couple of months–ideas include, having “study” buddies–going over to a friends house and working, doing work somewhere other than at the table–go to park, beach, even work somewhere in the home that may be different–under the table, on the floor…
Movement may help facilitate learning–Kris Danna has a good book for this as well as Grace LaHatt. Manipulative can help with math–unifix cubes, cuisenaire rods, beans, popsicle sticks, etc. Outside websites that come highly recommended included www.donnayoung.org, www.bigbrainz.com, www.timberdoodle.com.
We would love to know what your favorite additions to workbooks and classwork? Please feel free to leave a comment with a website or your favorite resource.
Our next CHAT will be held Monday, March 21st at 7 pm
Janet has a saying–“Cleaning your house while the kids are growing is like shoveling snow while it’s still snowing”
