We are now three days in and have learned a few things…
1. Make sure to get out and exercise in the middle of the day to break up the lessons. It seems that by half way point, the kids would WAY rather go out on a dog walk than do more classes, BUT at the end of the day the only thing that the dog walk is doing is get in the way of Xbox….
2. Prep the night before – having the lesson plans printed and ready to go removes and issue relating to internet access on the day
3. Focus – Oliver is even worse with his focus issues in a school environment – just one of the dogs wandering into the room is enough to disrupt his ability to concentrate…. and he would like to listen to music…. y, right!!
4. Mid morning snack – core to keeping the beast that is the hangry gene from mutating all over the dining room….
