So no schoolwork on Wednesdays.
So I thought I'd show you what a "no School day" looks like!
Firstly I think the boys are learning whilst shopping, they are comparing prices, following a routine of going up and down each aisle so you're not going from one aisle to the next and back again! and the main lesson is smiling at grumpy people who tut and pass you without saying thank you when you've stepped aside to let them through!
One of the boys puts the shopping on the conveyor belt and another helps me pack. They take it in turns to pay the checkout person with the money ( I always draw out cash so we can do this) Then they have to work out the change.
Then the unpacking, we have to rotate the things in the cupboard so things don't go out of date and we have to put things away orderly so that everything fits!!. Whilst doing this they are learning what needs to go in the freezer, fridge or cupboard.
Today I bought some raspberry canes and seeds in with the shopping so this afternoon Clark helped me plant things and sowed some seeds.
Not too sure if you can see the raspberry canes there!
Runner beans in an egg tray with cotton wool, so we can do a science lesson in a week or two!
Whilst he was doing this Callum was shredding paper for the rabbits and guinea-pigs and then he cleaned out some of the guinea-pigs and Soloman and Cody helped me make these,
Well Frugal Mum Of Three is one of them and she did a great post which will help raise awareness of poverty. I thinks it's well worth a read so I've put the link in.
Let me know what you think and if you are going to give it a go.
Eden's due home any minute with a friend and they are going to wash the mini-bus which I'm sure is just an excuse for a water fight! So I'd better go and sort out some old sponges before she nicks all my new ones!!
