Help a Pregnant Homeschool Mommy Out…

Hey everyone! I need some help!
I’m am crazy mad into the nesting right now and I’m going to lose my mind. I can NOT focus on anything right now unless it involves sorting, organizing, washing, sewing (baby stuff) etc. I need ways to implement school work into my nesting since squeezing nesting into the school day isn’t working out so well.
So, who has ideas? lessons? tricks? We have an 8 year old Second Grader and a Kindergartener, not to mention my 18 mth old Bubbagirl. I had thought about having them follow me around with a notepad writing down words that related to what I was doing: Diaper, Wash, Clean, Fold, Shirt, etc…. but that will get old fast. I’ve tried to teach them to sew/crochet/etc but that’s blows up in my face too. They are still too impatient with things like that (they get it honestly).
anyone? anyone?

    What about those no sew things like blankets and such? If your second grader can tie, s/he can make those pretty easily.
    Do they like to cook? Maybe they can help prepare some freezer meals…or at least cookies and muffins.
    And put together activity bags. My kids love doing that. They fill their own canvas bag with coloring sheets and stuffed animals and a few toys so they are ready to go to the hospital or grandma’s or wherever they’ll be when baby comes.

    You can start a unit study on The Universe and get the set of History channel dvd’s like I bought. Use the dvd’s as a unit study on Astrology/Astronomy. There are 14 dvd’s and each dvd has 4 epsiodes of “The Universe” show that came on tv. If I am not mistaken you can get them through Netflix or maybe even Blockbuster by mail if you use them. Or you can do like I did and just buy your own set off Amazon.com. They were $59. If you can get them to sit through the dvd’s that would give you a break for about a month if you show them 2 1hr episodes a day.
    That’s the only thing I can think of. It will teach them about the Universe, stars, all the planets, black holes, etc. And at 8 & kindergarten it is information they can both understand for the most part.
    I don’t have any other ideas. I used that when my kids needed a break from regular textbook/workbook work.
    Have the 8 yr old read alot of books. Reading improves your grammar, spelling and teaches you about the world. You can get alot of learning from books. Have her read her books out loud to the kindergartener.

    You can let it go. 🙂 Go unschooler for a few weeks! Let them read, play and just enjoy life while you get what you need done.

    We had Doodlebug make my grandma a tie blanket for her birthday last week.  It was the first craft project she ever saw through to the end!  I was so proud of her!

     

    Thanks for the idea!
