Usually we are up for whatever. There’s no “Oh, we can’t–we have to finish math” like some of my homeschooling friends. So this morning when my cell phone rang at 9:30am and the little voice belonging to a family that we adore asked us to come over at 10:30am (pack a lunch)… I didn’t even give it a second thought.
This schooling thing is going to take some getting used to.
But today is scheduled to be our “finish and review” day. It’s the day where I check through all of the assignments, make sure they’re actually done (and done right), finish anything that wasn’t done and then, something new. We’re going to recap the week and talk about how we each felt it went, and then talk about the week ahead and what’s going on. I kind of like the idea of building in this review and planning as part of habits of mind. Which reminds me that I have “Learning and Leading with Habits of Mind” sitting in my bedroom waiting to be read… hmmm.
But today we played. And it was good. And I was reminded about CLEP exams. And suddenly my challenges around biology seemed completely resolved.
