Could This Be Called "Unschooling?"
I told the kids that we would take off school this week until after Christmas and they hooped and hollered all weekend long. However, by the time Tuesday rolled around, (which is today) their minds were turning to jello. I knew they couldn't take it for long without hitting the books which is just what they did. They grabbed their favorite board game and the dictionaries. Oh yes, one cannot expect to win scrabble without a dictionary. Especially when a younger child is playing with a much older child. I am amazed at how quickly a word can be looked up when it comes between winning or losing a game!!
