In an earlier post I mentioned our Wacky Week.
The week before a holiday is what we call a WACKY WEEK. When we began homeschooling, we thought having such a week accomplished and acknowledged a few things.
* The days before a holiday are often hectic and interrupted by holiday errands.
* Fewer days in the week mean that getting through our weekly curriculum might be too stressful for an already busy week.
* Taking these days before a holiday to work on items outside our regular curriculum gives us a chunk of time in areas that we would benefit from.
* We needed some flexibility and a break from the ordinary.
Our Wacky Week focuses on art: Drawing, appreciation, study of artists.
Wacky Week also allows for letter writing and special copywork.
Wacky Week gives us the opportunity to double down on educational videos.
Wacky Week gives us a break to read a book outside of our curriculum.
Wacky Week can also focus on science experiments...field trips....discussions....Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
Here are some photos from our Wacky Week.
