I've realized that I am a lot more interested in writing about the emotional and social health of children. However, I feel like I need to cover the academic benchmarks, too, because my message is one of creating a well-rounded child. So, I guess I will have to slog through a little bit of my writing in order to get to the stuff that I like. : /
One of the brainstorming ideas this week was to create a flow chart. I put WAY more energy into that. I was like, "Research Common Core information? Um...Okay...Or I could play with my chart instead!" Woo hoo! I can procrastinate with the best of 'em. Anyway, I put this up on my hallway wall and it made me feel like Claire Danes on Homeland.
