As some of you know, I am on the leadership team for our homeschool group/co-op. I am the "Moms' Group coordinator" meaning I am responsible for coming up with activities, etc. for us to do when we're NOT teaching or helping with classes. I already sent an email around to the group introducing myself and asking for ideas about what everyone would be interested in doing this year. It didn't dawn on me when I read the list that we have a homeschooling DAD in our group this year!! His wife works and he stays home with the children. Nearly everything that I came up with was geared towards moms but we want to make him feel included as part of the group, so it's back to the drawing board! Does anyone have any ideas of things we could do that a man would enjoy participating in?
EDIT: There seems to be some confusion about how our group works and why I'm asking this question. I guess I should have been more clear! Our group only meets for 2 hours every Tuesday, as opposed to all day which is how most co-ops work. One hour is gym class and the other hour is an enrichment class ( art, science, etc.). We have the year divided up into 5 week units with different things being taught in each unit. Everyone has to take their turn either teaching or helping in class for a unit. For example, during unit 2, which is in October and November, I am assigned to teach gym class for 5 weeks and the person who taught gym the previous 5 week unit will have the next 5 weeks off from teaching and that's where the Moms/Parents Room and acivities come in. At any given time, there will probably be about 9 people in the Moms/Parents Room, with everyone taking their turn when assigned. Does that make sense?
