The Return of the Lesson Plan....

I got a little busy so the lesson plans posting kind of the fell by the way side. Now I have a little more of a chance to get them posted again, so I thought that I would share them with every one once again.

When I was doing the list earlier my biggest issues was the boys not finishing there work. That seems to have changed for a couple of reasons. First was me, I changed my daily routine around. I was doing cleaning will trying to work on their lessons. It was not working well on being able to keep their focus. So now when they do school I make sure to sit with them. I usually do some sort of project while I sit there because they do not always need my help. This way I am there if they need me tho. The other thing we started our own little store for them. It is kind of like the treasure box that one of my old teachers used to do in our class. If the boys finish their work on time they get a stone for each of the classes that they do that day. Every friday dh and I bring out the store. The boys can trade in for something. This is where the other part comes in, it teaches them about saving. If they see something that they want but do not have enough stones they can save up and try to buy later. We have been working this method for a few weeks now and it seems to be working.

Just a reminder Sam is the third grade and Gabe is in Kindergarten if you want to use any of if the schedule.

Keeping a schedule will really work wonders. It sounds like you incorporate Montessori into your homeschool.
