The theme I chose for today's post is: The 7 most common 'teaching moments' around our house right now. These are some my current 'go to phrases' and others as you'll read are some of the 'life stages' we're teaching/disciplining our children through right now.
"Please do your morning chore."
My kids are often challenged in the am to get 'going' for the day. I feel like a broken record saying this each morning.
"Great job! All your hard work paid off!"
Several of our kids have made great accomplishments this week. I'm talking BIG school achievements! #1 made all A's and B's for the second quarter (as well as the first). We're very proud of her! She's been learning a lot about study habits, planning, persevering and such. It didn't take her long to 'figure out' the differences between homeschool and 'brick and mortar'. She has adjusted really well.
#2 was asked to write a pretty long paper. He did it! And it was really good. #2 and #3 are my best creative writers. Makes sense to me because they're the ones with the biggest imagination and the ones with all the 'thoughts' in their heads.
#3 was also asked to write her first 'long' paragraph. She fought against me a bit, but once she used her strong will to buckle down and do it she produced a fabulous paragraph with interjections and emotion! Love it when she writes!
