We are going to Georgia for Christmas and as I said, there are not enough days in this month to get all the school that needs to be done completed. So, we are going to do school in the car. This will require some modification to our normal school schedule, but that is the beauty of home schooling!!
We will do some flash cards (math and phonics). We also will make good use of the Leapsters that each girl has. My favorite part about these games is that they are all educational and fun. Electronic toys are rarely used in our home. We save those type of things for the long car rides. Because of this, my children are entertained by them for most of the car ride.
We will probably not do any reading or writing because my oldest tends to get car sick fairly easily. I may do some reading to them though. I'll keep brain storming to think of ways to make the trip educational enough to be school. Maybe I will look up some info about the cities we will be driving through and use some of that. If you have any great car educational ideas, let me know.
All I know is that we wouldn't be able to do any of this if my children were in a conventional school. I love the flexibility of schooling at home!
