What She Chose

Today was an experiment. Due to standardized testing most of this week I thought we could treat this as kind of an unschooling week. Grace was presented with a list of activities to gain electronic time. Since it was still an actual school day she was told to pick six activities to count as school for today. I should have known she would have picked all the easy stuff. Would not most kids!? Today Grace crocheted for 30 minutes, watched a documentary about dolphins, read a nature magazine for 20 minutes, listened to an audio book for 30 minutes, sketched horses, listened to me read aloud to her for 25 minutes, and studied some of her new vocabulary cartoons book. So I guess all in all it wasn't to bad of a day. I have noticed after doing this for the past two days she is showing a little less interest in the computer. Believe me she still can't wait to earn her time and get on the computer, but once she starts using it she doesn't stay on it for long.

Sounds like a great plan - and a fun way to school! Love the benefit of less computer time. We need to tweak our media time around here!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
