First day of school today! *Update* Change of plans. So not working out...
I tried really hard but dd is just dragging her feet. She's staying up all night (think 3am chatting on FB) sleeping in all day, doing her work half ass and rushing through her chores to see her friends. I'm thinking we need to change gears and a bit more unschooling. So new plan.
DD can sleep in as late as she wants but she has to spend a minimum of 5 hours at home with the family before she can go see her friends. This 5 hours excludes FB and her tablet. She can watch documentries with me and her brother, go to the library with us, do arts and crafts, read, write, explore; anything she wants except social media :-) Her curfew is 9:30 and no tablet, laptop or T.V. past 11:00. Other than that she can stay up as late as she likes.
Her first words when I told her was, "I'm waking up at 5am." LOL We'll see how that goes.
Today is 13yo dd's first day of homeschool! I'm a bit nervous and pretty excited. I'm trying not to go too easy or too hard on her.
So here's how her days going to look. Any feedback would be awesome!
Wake up at 9:00 (Or when I finish writing this,lol) Eat breakfast, shower, ect.
Work at 10:00: Science: Watch nature documentary, write down interesting facts.
Writing: 30 min minimum Wattpad Fan fiction about Harry Styles.
Reading 1hr of favorite book. (This can be done at anytime during the day)
Grammar: Mad Libs
Math: 30 min AchieveMath online
History: One chapter of Greek Gods and Goddesses *Followed by a weekly collage*
I figure I can add more or change things as we go.
