That is kind of what we are going to do. We have co-op on Friday so we don't have time to do a full day of work. So we are going to do games and projects on Fridays.

That sounds like so much fun!

My kids fall apart on fridays so we are doing M-Th and then our weekly quizes/tests on Fridays. They usually need lots of rest come Fridays

We have co-op type classes on Thursdays all day and an evening sewing club that day too. Hubs is teaching three classes this year and I'm teaching one plus helping with setting up the nursery/prek area.

We have one kid's choir practice and church clubs wednesday.

My 7th grader has choir and classes on tuesday.

There are other things they do, like Junior Bible Quizzing and church plays.

Anyway, my point to all this is that We use the rest of the time to just randomly get our own class work finished.

So true about the rest that is what we slow down see what our children knows by Friday so testing is a great idea

we use games to teach throughout the week. My kids love it. We have even done spelling on the wii. We use a hands on, lots of reading and a game approach to learning. My youngest loves learning through games. I have to admit I love it as well. We usually do our games on days we are home all day.

Why are you sorry? My kids are going in 5th and 7th grade and we still play games. I learn about as much as they do. My sons learn so much from a hands on approach. Learning should always be fun. My boys love games and having fun. I like to do a variety of things.
