Getting back to work.

Hi I need some advice. Destinay had time off, we didn't do any academics all last week. Tomorrow I have two appointments. So we probably won't do any academics. How do you all get back to work?

    We usually start with a light day.. or just jump right in. :)
    if you need to lesson plan, then take the time to do it or you will feel off the whole day/week. :)

    It's usually rough the first day back, and I plan something fun toward the end... kinda something to look forward to.

    I also remind them, yes we've been off, but can't be off all the time.   We talk about how lucky we are to be able to take that time off.

    I also notice that if my kids don't really "feel" like doing school and want to do other stuff, I make a short list that they can check off themselves.   They work pretty studiously if they can see their accomplishments.
