So, our first week of home school has come and gone. There were successes and challenges and many I-will-do-this-different-next-time moments. Which seems pretty par for the course when it comes to first weeks.
My biggest struggle was a personal one: the realization that I am not in a classroom mandated by government laws and rules anymore. Believe it or not, that's a hard mentality to shake. After so many years of doing it this way or that way because someone said I had to, I am really having to rewire my brain to be like: Sister, you don't need any time fillers so that you can assess or collect data or DIBEL or whatever. You can, quite literally, TEACH.
Clouds parted, birds began to sing, and a rainbow arched clear across the home school room in that moment of clarity. That deep, cleansing breath didn't happen until Thursday, though, when I was trying to have Beckham do something that wasn't age-appropriate. He was frustrated. I was frustrated. I had to call in reinforcements and walk.out.of.the.room. #teachermomfail We both recovered and Friday went much better.
So, this week, you're going to see some repeats from last week in my plans. And, it's cool because y'all are the only ones who are going to see them :)
