    I have decided to ease back into home-school activities and focus on my 3 year old right now. With my daughter being in public school I know she has enough on her plate. If anything she can do some craft activities when she comes home. Although her initial reaction after school is to veg in front of the TV and have a snack for at least 30 minutes.

    I have tried to have a dedicated home-school area but that has not worked out well. So I am going to keep it light and work in a quiet ...

  5. Homeschool Planning: Organizing and Time ‘Management’ Tools.

    by , 08-26-2014 at 01:05 AM
