Home School .3 (Teaching while sick)

Home  School  parents  are  human  to,  and  we  do not  always  feel like  we  eat  “AN  APPLE  A  DAY”.  I  was  not  feeling  so  well  today,  more  like,  after  coming  home  from  some  early  morning  dinner  shopping,  I  had  to  put  the  pj’s  back  on  and  climb  back  into  bed.  However,  school  must  go  on.

Tips  on  homeschooling  while  sick:

1.)  Have  some (sick  day) homework  assignments  pre-planned,  knowing  that  if  you are  unable  to  help  the  way  that  you  normally  do,  the  assignments still  cover  the  daily  lessons,  but  are  easy  enough  for  your student  to  work  on  them  independently.

2.)  Whatever  you  can  do,  do  it  from  the  comfort  of  your  bed……this  works  perfectly  well  if  you  just  have  one  kid,  but  if  not,  turn  your  bedroom  into  a classroom.

3.)  If  you  have  the  internet,  you  tube  is  great  for  educational  videos,  abcmouse,  etc.

4.)  You  home  school  for  goodness  sake….work  around  your  schedule  and  your  health.  Keep  YOU,  healthy  so  that  you  can  get  back  to  your  routine  of  teaching.  Get  some  GUILT  FREE  rest.  We  are  our  children’s  teachers, and  motivators.  We  need  to  be  healthy.

Survival  kit  for  the  “under  the weather”,  home  school  teacher:

1.)  tea (honey)

2.)  tissue (meds)

3.)  crackers

4.)  soup

6.)  computer

7.)  My  favorite:  books new  ❤

(Authors  on  books:  C.S.  Lewis;  and  J.I.  Packer)

Feel  better!!!

    The Daughter is finishing up Knowing God by Packer. Dense but good! I never think to schedule in sick days…Our list looks like yours except Netflix instead of Computer. (I do hope you feel better!)
