A Day in the Life... again
So much of homeschooling is just the day to day of life and learning. So here is a sampling of our day with a 12, 10, 8, and 2 year old and a crap ton of laundry.
5:30am - alarm goes off. Hit snooze.
5:38am - second alarm goes off. Reset for 5:44am - third alarm goes off.
5:45am - Teaching app alarm goes off.
5:46am - drag self out of bed and get dressed in a rush and head downstairs.
5:55am - fire up computer, log in, quick selfie.
6:00am - TEACH! (Its 7pm Beijing time) Like my background? It makes me forget I am in my basement ;)
NOT PICTURED: My make up to hide my tired eyes....
6:30am - finish first class and have a short break to make some coffee! Coffee makes the teaching magic happen! Well, coffee and AR stickers. We dressed up as the characters to read the story!
8am - DONE TEACHING (for money anyway)! Time for morning snuggles!
NOT PICTURED: Hubby who is already off to work, Big Girl B and Boy B who are still grumping around in their pajamas.
9am -ish. Morning work. Office work for mom. Handwriting, math, and spelling for kiddos. Sticker work for the smallest and squishiest.
Yes, that is ajar with an exoskeleton in it.
10am - MATH! PICTURED: Boy B with Harley and her stuffed bunny. Math is always easier with a giant dog and her stuffed bunny.
ALSO PICTURED: crap ton of laundry to fold.
NOT PICTURED: Big Girl B and Squishy B who are doing their math in their bedroom.
11:00am - Fast forward through phonics and language arts - nothing to see here because I forgot to take pictures.
11:30am - SCIENCE! Today we decided to watch one of our favorite YouTube channels - Smarter Every Day. We watch, we discuss, and sometimes we delve into the rabbit hole and learn more about the subject of the video. Today it was watch and discuss.
