and I thought I'd share, in case anyone else wants to change up the way they school. Hey, it's summer, it's HOT, and I don't want the kids to get burnt-out. So, today we are schooling the Fluxx way!
The way it works: we did Torah Class, then we played a game of Star Fluxx (teacher's choice). The winner of that game got to pick the next subject, and the next version of Fluxx we'd play...and we're doing that for each class.
Yes, it adds time to our day. Yes, it's FUN. It's different, and it's a bit silly (we just finished Martian Fluxx, and are currently watching Lecture 1 of "How to Look at and Understand Great Art". Next up is Monty Python Fluxx (rule: we can't play the same version of Fluxx 2x in a row)...winner picks from the rest of our classes (Hebrew/Math/Writing).
We won't do this every day, but I have to admit it's fun. You could do it with just about any game, I think - of course, shorter games are better for this than long ones. You could even run races or something athletic, if that floats your boat. :lol:
So - what do you do to keep your homeschool fun?
(For record-keeping: Saturday I made a batch of Derby cheese, today it's Colby.)
