The great thing about homeschooling is that the learning happens anywhere. And often everywhere!! Here is Flex writing a piece of persuasive text by the pool. He is trying to convince me to let him get a new Xbox game. It's amazing the quality of work he can produce when there is some real life motivation behind it!! We are working on the concept of 'maturity' at the moment as far as school 'work' goes. To him this means:
not complaining when I suggest we do some work,
contributing ideas as to what the work will consist of/ be about,
understanding that education is a REALLY useful tool to have in your kit,
doing your best, whatever that is at the time,
and maintaining good grace and good humour...
He is really growing up and I just love it!
