Activity time happens when the formal school work is done and before free time. The older kids have to read for 30 minutes on their own every day and it’s up to them whether activity time comes first or not.
Activity Time is when the kids have to choose something off the approved list to play or do. It can be games, activity kits, marble runs, wedgits, snap circuits, Lincoln logs, legos, crafts, etc. It lasts for one hour. It can share time with pursuing passions. It can be extra silent reading time. It does not include video gaming or any kind of screen time.
Sounds a little much? Well it is working out just great! The idea was to add on to their formal day with some productive activity. I find the kids make better choices with their free time with this plan.
It provides productive time for the kids and big brothers make less poor choices in their relationships with their siblings. I’m just sayin’.
