Ever have one of those days? You know, those days… You’re snippy, short-tempered, and everything bugs you. And those days can find you and affect how you behave to the little cherubs surrounding you – whether you’re a classroom teacher, homeschool mom, stay-at-home daddy… whomever you are.
I mean… I’ve heard about those days. Ummm, never really had them myself. Here is a fabulous resource just in case you ever feel the after-effects of a mean-mommy day, or you feel like bashing the math workbook over you’re nine year old’s head, or the kids in the table group by the door are. driving. you. crazy. or… well, you get the picture. (FYI – We’ll be checking this out again ourselves today. This mean-mommy needs to shower some love on her little ones. We’re going to play a little bit. Hope you can join us.)
Today’s Resource Is:
I wrote about this really cool little e-book in Free Resources for Elementary Teachers, stating the same thing I’ll write here: Seems like a strange thing to include as a resource for teachers or homeschoolers, right? Wrong!
This is a jam-packed 42-page booklet with amazing activities to try with any child in your life. Got a budding politician on your hands? Try out #4 with her – Write a Letter to an Elected Official. Studying the Victorian Era? Try out #8 – Play Sardines (a fun old-time twist on indoor hide and seek). The ideas are endless – while it is entitled, 100 Free Things, each activity concludes with hot links to further resources for similar activities. This is a great book to add to your repertoire.
If you have a chance to download it, stop by and leave a comment to let me know what you try with your kids and how they liked it. Hmmm… what should we do today? Tell jokes while having an indoor picnic in forts made out of couch cushions… Will it be enough?
I have a lot of making up to do. We’re ready for a little fun.
