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!
