It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date. Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.
Happy Monday! Or at least I hope you’re having a good Monday – all things considered. Today I’m actually going to have my youngest two do a little school work. While homeschooling is normal for us, the stuff going on around us isn’t. So, we’ve been doing lots of reading, but other than that, we’ve been taking it easy. And we’re still going to be taking it easy. But I at least want my high schooler working on math and chemistry. I’ve mentioned this before, but I don’t remember if it was on here or just to some of the people that have been asking for help and guidance: don’t stress the schooling right now. If your child has mandatory online work that has to be done, then that’s one thing. But, if they don’t then just find some fun things for them to do that are also educational – things as simple as playing a game of Monopoly. I promise that it won’t hurt them in the long run. Anytime that things became stressful in our lives we always went lax with the schooling and focused on family and fun. Result: my oldest is a straight A college student now. Very little learning will take place if you’re stressed and they’re stressed.
