I let Kid stay home from school again today. I just thought she was tired and needed to sleep and just let today be an *easy* day emotionally. (Plus, I was really tired from staying up late watching Lost...just kidding).
When she woke up (2 hours after she would have had to get up for school), I told her we would do a practice homeschool day.
We started with the assignment her teacher had emailed me. Then we went on to practice her spelling words.
When we introduce new spelling words I usually give it in the context of a sentence.
So when I told her "kicked", I followed it with...
"I accidentally kicked you in the head." (As if that isn't what came to your mind first, too)
Then Kid said...
"Which actually happens all the time at school."
"Except... it isn't an accident." She finished.
