From My Makeshift Homeschool to Yours

Make Something Monday 5

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend at home! Back to the home school game! I ended up making Logan a binder and printing out the assignments from his teachers so he can see them every week. He also has a notebook he keeps at his “desk” (our kitchen table) and I make him a TO DO checklist every day. He also has a weekly TO DO checklist from his PE teacher and his Music teacher, so I add “one PE thing” and “one Music thing” to his daily list. I find it helpful to keep me organized and he likes being able to see what he has left and what he has completed. How are you organizing your homeschool?

For Make Something Monday, I thought it would be fun to make something springy. We have a lot of animals in our backyard that we notice every day when we are distracted from our school work. Now that the snow is melting and it is warming up, I’m hoping to spend some time doing yard work. This might encourage Logan to spend time in the yard with me.

Here’s a fun bird feeder from The Resourceful Mama. Logan spotted a blue jay in our backyard the other day so he will be happy to feed our birds. But not our magpies. Not a fan.
