Busy and Tired

I made a list of what they need to accomplish each day, primarily to keep them focused on that particular day. Math, language arts, a weekly essay for K, Spanish, and U.S. History. Charles accuses me of following Common Core, but the truth is that I go through all available standards (state, "what your x-grader should know, etc.) and then make decisions based on where they need to focus, which can vary as their individual strengths emerge and wane. Adding Thinkering and the TV-show production to our list corresponds with the beginning of the baseball season and twice-weekly practices, as well as additional choir practices during Lent and ongoing training for the Bay to Breakers. So they are busy... and tired. (And so darling, really!)
