The weather was absolutely beautiful today and since my children were stuck inside all day yesterday because it was raining and I was in bed sick, we HAD to get outside today. But we also had to do school so I came up with a fun, creative way to allow both. We have a speaker that we can plug a microphone into so we took it outside and I read aloud to them from our All American History book while they played. You may be thinking that they weren’t really listening so it was a total waste of time. WRONG! They answered every question I asked about the lesson.
I had a lot of fun…so much in fact that my 15 year old son told me that I was having “too much fun” and then he took my microphone away. Party pooper! Anyway, it just goes to show you that school CAN be fun and I promise you that if you make it memorable, they will…well, remember it! I love making memories with my kids and sharing them with you to encourage you to do the same.
