The kids all dove right back into school work as soon as we returned from Christmas break. However, since that time we have struggled to get them to focus on their studies. We continue to reinforce the importance of getting our school work complete . . . regardless of how long it takes.
We have instituted Sticker Charts to encourage the kids to complete each days assignments. Some days it works wonders . . . other days not so much. My boys are learning . . . work must be completed each day or we have a LONG day. Today was one of those kind of days!
