I woke up to the news of no school till May 1st. It’s mind-boggling really. I mean from a kid’s point of view it sounds awesome but as a parent, I don’t want my kid to fall behind on her studies. Learning the basics is very important so I woke up with a plan. Let’s see how it goes but I’m trying and todays session went well. Zelda learned about measurements with the help of measuring cups and spoons. I think kids learn better with visuals and projects so I took out my baking cups and spoons and a glass jar with the ounces marked on it. We spilled a little bit of water but it made learning fun.
We’re keeping busy and not going out. I try not to tune in to the news as much because then I start to worry. I’m staying positive, clean, and safe.
Try to keep busy at home by either rearranging and decluttering a room or a closet or kitchen. We all have a certain area in your home that’s just a mess and now is the perfect time to tackle it. Start a journal and write or a blog like myself. Reach out to friends and FaceTime each other. It’s really fun and I’ve done it a couple of times already. If you’re into video games, put in the hours and pass it (Legend of Zelda:Breath of the Wild😅) or binge watch on a show you’ve been meaning to watch. If you’re stuck at home with friends or family, play board games. I recently ordered one online so I’m excited to get it. It’s also a great time to learn new recipes. If you have a backyard, start a garden and plant vegetables or tend to the plants and flowers. It’s therapeutic. ￼
Be positive and safe people. It’s scary what going on but don’t let it consume your thoughts all day. Keep busy and catch up on things, it’s the perfect time. I have a big list so I’m slowing going thru it.
