last semester we started our CM journey with SCM. We finished Kinder and had a wonderfull experience. Then I messed it all up. I took the month of May to get my first grade plans totether. Then I did it ladies and gents. I strayed over to a different forum and dove in to the curriculum planning. It was just too much. I forgot the "Simply" part. We started June first and were both avoiding "lessons" and making up great reasons to have a "free" day. I started focusing on checking boxes and not the methode of loving reading and inspiring ideas.
Realizing my folly and praying for help. I reactivated the SCM Organizor and took a week off to reevaluate, re inspire and breathe.
This week... yes I know its only Wed. I have been taking a gentle dive back into it. I feel excited again, and resolved. DD however is giving me adittude and begging for "free" time. why oh why doesn't she want to cuddle up on the couch to read with me:( if she does, I can forget about any narration... she is off into lala land. If I offer to play uno or take her to the pool "POP" she is back!
Short of lecturing her about her responsability to pay attention and learn or bribing her with an uno game or trip to the pool!!! jk, sort of. what can I do to reinspire her? How do I show her it is going to be fun and interesting this time?
sorry for the vent. I am sure the answer lies within me. how and what do I need to change about me?
thanks for any advice, hugs and very needed prayers.
I know this is right for our family. just have to figure out how to make it work.
(on top of the CM homeschooling I am changing our families diet over to organic, gluten, and dairy free in order to get my 3 year old twins health issues under controll. so maybe it is just me feeling the stress and relaying it to her.)
