When we started homeschooling the KnytLite, I picked up a little chalkboard and chalk to use for examples – and I still use it now with teaching the MiniNess her sounds and letters. We like to use the different colors. Some days we’re green, other days we’re pink, or purple – it gives the “classroom” a little bit of fun somehow. It did that for me when my teachers used it, and the magic is still there today. I know it seems like a silly sort of thing, but kids love it, and I admit, I do too.
Then there’s the big bucket of sidewalk chalk – something I never had as a kid, but my kids love. I don’t know what it is about chalk, but it’s so much fun.
And it’s cheap too!
Anything you’re thankful for this week?
