This week has been a much more "normal" school week for us! It is good to be back in a routine before things get a little crazy again next week. I plan on resuming normalcy in November! Thank goodness for the flexibility of homeschooling....or my stress level would be jacked up just a notch. The rest of September and October will be an extremely busy. This will be my last post for the next two weeks because the kids and I are heading on a road trip to Niagara Falls....and other spots still to be determined!
I don't know if there is a kid out there that doesn't like to play games...especially when it comes to things related to learning. My girls would much rather play a game instead of doing a boring workbook page or me just talking to them.
This past week we have played many spelling related games. In third grade the spelling words have gotten quiet hard for my little chickas. One is a semi-natural speller and is good at memorizing words the other is not. So hopefully by playing game after game with their lists it will help with the memorization process.
The first game we played was Candyland. In order to move a spot, they had to get a word right. If they didn't the other person could steal the word and turn. It took a bit longer than a normal game of Candyland, but the girls still had fun.
