It seems to be the cold and flu season around here. Gess has been off and on antibiotics twice this last month, currently it is due to an ear infection. On top of her being ill I have had this chest cold that has taken my voice. I think I am finally getting it back, but needless to say, all this illness makes for challenging school days!
I realize that public schools allow sick days and there were a couple of days that we took off, but one thing I love about homeschooling is that there are ways to study while "resting" and not doing "school." That is one reason I have been emphasizing some of the things we do on the computer lately. Between those sites and some educational games like Jumpstart World, Gess is able to "play" on the computer while actually doing some review work. It's also a good time to bring out some educational videos. With Presidents day falling through all of this we managed to find some decent videos to watch about Washington and Lincoln too.
We actually did manage to do "studies" most of the time, though I chose to cover only the basics. Reading, Writing and Math. Social Studies and Science were done online via games and websites. We can catch up that sort of subject anytime. I think we are over that hump and on the road to getting well, so I should be bringing out the camera again soon and showing some more work in progress. I am actually thinking of making a video to show how well her reading and speech skills are coming along too. Until then know that we are on the road to recovery and that we are enjoying the times where we don't even have to get "dressed." See, even in PJ's, learning on the computer is fun!
