Currently Im in search of ideas to add to a new section of schooling we’re gonna implement this year. Please comment on the blog itself if you have any thoughts. What Id like to add is an “Important Life Lessons” section that can be “done” outside of the classroom.
So far I know that we will daily do a 15 Team Work chore time, where we’ll pick one chore a day to work on. My goal here is to teach Miss Bailie that although there are sometimes chores we dont want to do, if we work together they get done faster and are more enjoyable.
Id also like to add sections weekly. Currently my weekly ideas only go as far as a “Taking Care of God’s Earth” where the whole week each day we’ll go somewhere and clean something up: trash on a street, writing on the park, etc. Another week we can focus on “Helping Others” where maybe we’ll go help a neighbor, or a friend, each day that week work on a project. A Third week we can focus on “Those Less Fortunate Than Us” where each day we can do something different like maybe going to a homeless shelter, soup kitchen, maybe just helping out with the Helping Hands or Esther’s Closet, etc.
So Ive got 3 weeks worth of “DO” Life Lesson ideas but I need probably 20 + more week ideas. Any thoughts?
