For those families stuck at home during the corona virus, you may be getting emails from your child’s teacher about various school assignments that you need to complete. I thought I would share a simple way that you and your child can track those assignments to ensure that everything is getting finished.
Stay safe, and remember that learning can be fun! Break up the monotony of school work by taking breaks between each assignment, or roll dice to see what assignment to do next (my daughter’s favorite).
Corona Virus got your family down? Print this fun game to play with your family. Some of the activities are related to being healthy and some are just plain fun!
Download the game and both sets of cards, Players will complete the activity or answer the question depending on the color of the space they land on. You may need to reuse cards so make sure you have a discard pile for both blue and green cards!
You will need game markers and all three printables to play. Some activities require additional supplies, like access to soap/water and paper/pencil.
Can you believe it’s already February? We are excited to share with you our free printables for this month. I know our family has really enjoyed the family history questions that Anna at IvoryBloom has created, so if you haven’t had a chance to use them I strongly recommend it!
I will be completely honest- our Come Follow Me has NOT gone as planned. Like at all. We missed two whole weeks due to sickness, soccer, an over abundance of missing schoolwork that we needed to catch up on, and to be honest a little discouragement. I was feeling pretty overwhelmed that I had to do everything, so like any productive person I ended up doing nothing. (insert face palm)
I have learned to let go of all the good materials and tidbits of bible information and lay hold of what’s best for my family. So are we going to memorize the map of Joseph’s pilgrimage to Bethlehem? We didn’t even look at the map! But that’s OK, because we are focusing on what our family NEEDS. Our current plan is to do the scripture reading, look for similarities with Buddhism (we are a mixed faith family), draw family history stories, and take advantage of Anna‘s fun activities that she plans. That’s all we can handle right now, but it is what our family needs.
My daughter has decided that she wants to get her personal progress award by the end of the year (she is a beehive and they are doing away with the program in 2020) and we have some executive functioning skills that are important for our family right now. Moral of this long winded story- PLEASE do not think you have to do it all. Acknowledge what your family needs and follow that path. Is it more important for your family to know the political history of the bible or the parables of Jesus or simply how to serve others? It is not for any of us outsiders to decide what your family needs, only you. If you are doing what your family needs then pat yourself on the back because you are implementing this program as it is intended. 🙂
On that note, I created a little dice game that would be a good review for January lessons. Or if you skipped a week or two, you can quickly learn about the scriptures that you missed. Click here to download.
I used these dice on Amazon, but you could assign each question a number and then roll regular dice to see what question to answer.
