I can't believe that my kids had 3 snow days in a row! Today is Thursday and its the first day of school for the week. On top of that, Monday is Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, so they have off then also!
I'm all about spending some relaxing time, laying around in pj's watching tv, playing games, etc. But after the fourth day of that (Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues) I'd had enough. I pulled out all the schoolwork and worksheets, crafts, projects, science experiment books etc.
Each of the 4 kids received a list of things that they had to complete before they got any "screen" time.
Of course, since I am a music teacher by trade, they had to do some music theory work. So I pulled out the list of music theory websites. They could pick any of them and they could spend 30 minutes on the computer playing the games on the sites. It was a win-win situation!
So, in case there are other moms who are ready for some academic achievement in the times of snow days, here's the list of websites again:
Have a great snow day!
