What are you procrastinating?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Happy Wednesday! We are less than 2 weeks away from Christmas. Have you been procrastinating any of your preparations? Today is anti-procrastination day, and I want you to do something you have been putting off. It could be Holiday related or it could be something around the house.
How do your homeschool papers look? Do you need to file and purge? Do you need to update lesson plans or do some grading?
If your children are not putting their books away daily, make sure you have provided a place for their books and have shown them where to put their books when they finish with them each day. I will day that I am enjoying NOT having any textbooks this year. Everything is done online this year, and that has worked well for us this year.
If you have young children, I hope you are enjoying reading Holiday-themed books with them. Some of my favorite memories are of the time we spent reading together leading up to Christmas. If you have not read, The Rag Coat by Lauren Mills. I highly recommend it.
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost is another great winter read aloud book.
Some years we read plays aloud and acted them out. You can read portions of the Bible and have your children dramatize them.
These types of learning opportunities will stick in your children’s minds because it is using the creative side of the brain to solidify something they have heard you read to them.
Your zone mission today is to toss the leftovers from your fridge. Be sure to check the back of the shelves and in the drawers. You want to make sure you have tossed all of the science experiments that are growing in there.
Your Zone Mission today is to toss the leftovers from the fridge.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is lasagna.
Have a blessed day!
