For whatever reason, the three of us have found ourselves at an uninspired low.
DD doesn't want to do any work.
DS doesn't want to do Latin or composition.
I don't feel like doing anything!!
That means it is shake up time. I need to trawl the blogs for inspiration, and reorganise and rearrange.
First things first- the Rebel himself.
We have allowed ourselves to get bogged down in certain subjects. For example- composition. Classical Writing is a wonderful program, but someone is living up to his name and just not co-operating. It occurred to me today to look forward at what we need to do- and I took the bull by the horns and declared that we'd skip the rest of the lessons except the last one. It's a composition program- and he was writing with all the extensions required in the final writing project.
We'll start poetry next week, and I'll order the Homer Student Workbook A and Instructor's Guide.
Next, literature. OK I have really let the issue slide here- Elizabeth's lesson inspired me the other day, and I realised- narrations do not need to be written. So for Religious studies, Literature and history, I need to realign.
In fact, I need to actually assign history! I keep forgetting it :-o
With DD, the inspiration needs to be different. I need to trawl the blogs and look for ideas- a few more hands on ideas at that :) Maybe some fun reading ideas and some seasonal busywork to do while I am helping Rebel.
For me- I realised I needed a little more mental stimulation- I have been letting my brain atrophy ;) Time to challenge myself to learn some more!!
