We start our day usually rushing madly out the door to get to the Foodbank. Somedays we manage to have breakfast before we leave and other times we kinda scrounge for things at the Foodbank (which they are totally cool with).
This morning was one of those mornings of Granola bars, fruit and a juice box. :)
We had a good day at the Foodbank. We had numerous folks show up for assistance and they all left happy. We might have a back up person to help distribute food on Wednesday mornings. WOOT WOOT. We also had time to start organizing food by expiration date. My goodness.. we had lots of tuna that will be good until 2019! And the salmon until 2018. We had about 20 cans that man.. I wish the canning companies would put readable expiration dates on them!!!! It's hard to know what to do with those cans so I generally put them where they will be used up first.
After Classics for Kids we turned our attention to GPA Learn and Standard Deviants for Science. GPA is a new math program that we are reviewing that my son was quite excited to try out. So far he likes it, he particularly likes the reward aspect of it. Mom.. Will I get those all the time? I responded with "I don't know, you know as much as I do at this point.". :) He does get frustrated when I don't have all the answers. :) Standard Deviants is the program we used last year to learn earth sciences. My lad enjoyed it. The nutrition class that he's doing right now he is not as keen on. It uses a lot of big words that are quite similar so he's having a hard time keeping it all straight.
For his one helpful task of the day, he chose to make my bed (as I neglected to do so this morning). He didn't know what to do with the top sheet so he simply took it off. :) Made me laugh and he chortled with glee. :)
Since he didn't do his 20 minutes of reading yesterday he needed to do 40 minutes today. he struggled with what to read and finally said "mom, do you have a minecraft book on the tablet I can read?" This led him to learn how to find the kindle app and to learn how to scroll through the books to find what he wanted. He was quite pleased with his end selection. WOOT WOOT for free books for the kindle!!!! :)
So we didn't do all our dailies.... but if we do so on Wednesday we aren't done our schooling until about 4 o'clock and that puts everything way behind. This way the lad is happy as he doesn't need to do his dailies, I'm happy since I can do other stuff and the lad is free to earn additional time for playing Minecraft. No complaints and a smoother running household. :)
How did your homeschooling go today?
