A little something to spice up your school day

By Lisa Wallace, Intermediate Teacher 

When homeschooling my boys, I would occasionally try to add some fun into the school day. This only takes a few minutes of your time, but works wonders on lifting a sluggish spirit from the drudgery of routine. The night before, try hiding your child’s literature book, math book, history book, etc. Then leave a short note in the spot where the book is normally kept, describing where to find the absent book. “Your book might be taking a nap where Fido finds his food.” or “If I were Genghis Kahn, I would be hungry by now. Maybe he’s looking for some oats” You can be creative and try some poetry or some multi-level clues. Bottom line, anything out of the ordinary adds excitement to our day.
