We usually continue class as usual for most of the Monday holidays,
but we do try to incorporate so holiday themed activities for that day.
I just can’t DO a four day week.
I’ve tried in the past, and a four day week quickly turns into a three day week,
and then a two day week…and then eventually I give up and say,
Hey let’s just start FRESH on Monday.
A whole week gone, and I’m scrambling to figure out
where we’re going to make it up later!
So, I’ve since learned to do something else for these one day,
beginning of the week holidays.
Here is my magic formula:
-Drop everything except the three R’s.
-Include a special craft, activitiy, or field trip.
There. That’s it.
So tomorrow we’ll be reading about Veteran’s Day,
and making some special Thank You Cards.
Of course I made plenty to share.
And of course like a good little procrastinating Homeschooler,
I’ve posted it the night before Veteran’s day.
I realize that’s not the best plan.
I almost just waited until next year to share it,
but then I realized that there is at LEAST one of you out there
who is scrambling for something to do on Veteran’s Day tomorrow.
Obviously, I speak from experience.
So it’s not a fancy set, but I think it will get the job done!
There is a set of printable Thank You badges for children to color,
and use as the cover of a Veteran’s Day card.
I also included some easy to cut decorations,
which would be great for little ones just learning scissor work.
For children who are showing readiness, I also added in some ABC practice
and a small copywork page.
Pretty simple stuff.
