Thank you Shelisha,
When my kids were younger their teachers gave them winter break homework packets to work on so they wouldn't forget too much of what they were learning. With a combination of modern technology and talking to my kids. I sort of know what they are going over in their classes. My husband and I like to plan outings that help them remember what they are learning in school. The kids are old enough now they throw in their own idea's of places they want to see. What lessons they enjoy and don't enjoy.
Yes, a fun outing is always great!
@Maxine that is great! It is so important to make the textbook applicable to real life and you talk to them about school.Bravo! Most parents conversation is limited to did you do your homework. Great parenting!
