Blizzard Bags

I think we missed about 12 days of school due to the winter weather this year.  12 days of no learning = days added onto the end of the school year.  Yucky huh?

Enter the blizzard bag.  It's a folder for Layla and a gallon size baggie for Hayden.  It is filled with worksheets and activities for the kids to complete and it will equal a day of classwork.

At first it seemed like a pain in the butt, but the kids loved it!  They sat down this morning and did almost the entire workload.  They had fun and helped one another.  I sat between them with a cup of coffee and offered my assistance when needed.  It was a fun lazy Saturday morning activity until we got the the P.E. part.

Yes, there was even a physical education worksheet.  It was so cute to watch them stretch their muscles as they do in P.E. class.  There were activities like 'run in place for 3 minutes' and 'how may push-ups can you do in one minute.  It was a fun pick me up activity for after they did their classwork.

Each kiddo has a few more worksheets to complete and hopefully we'll finish tomorrow so they can turn them in on Monday.  The work isn't due for 10 days, but I think we'll be better off getting it done while the weather is still a bit chilly.  When warmer temperatures show up we'll be outside every single day!  We are thrilled to have spring SUN!
