My dear friend Jody gave me a great idea for Juno awhile back… see we have this problem that Juno flies through any kind of school book I give her. She could easily complete at least 3 books a day if I let her, which is quite expensive. She loves tracing letters and numbers and doing mazes, which is all a great start for JK next year, but I could never keep up with her demand for fresh paper. Until now…
Jody showed me a workbook that she had made for Kobe, printed off all the sheets online for free and then placed each page in a plastic page protector. Hand over some dry erase markers and you have a clean book to complete every day! And I can keep adding and changing sheets at a much much much lower cost.
She LOVES it!
Super easy and a little bit “now why didn’t I think of that?!” but I didn’t, Jody did, so thank you!
Today we were supposed to have a visit with friends but sadly had to cancel because Rusty was up half the night with ANOTHER bout of the flu. Poor kid. He seems much improved in the light of day though, so that’s a relief. We headed outside to freeze off the germs (as a side note… I really have no idea if I should keep my kids inside or send them outside when they are sick… anyone know what is healthier?!) and began to build an igloo.
That’s what we have so far. Well, what I have so far. Justus suggested it would be more fun if I do all the work. Nice.
