Setting Goals for our Screen Free Week

This week we started a new practice in our house. For a while now, our rule for screen time has been “only on the weekends.” Monday to Friday is for concentrating on schoolwork, homeschool co-ops, and housework. Now that summer is in full swing, we’re not spending as much time on bookwork. (yay!) However, during this break I wanted to encourage the kids to keep learning and finding things they enjoy learning about, SO I came up with a little challenge for them.

I asked each kid to pick a goal for themselves to work on this week. Some picked smaller goals, and some picked bigger goals. It’s been interesting to see which ones were really motivated, and which ones needed more encouragement. It has definitely provided some fun this week though!

I posted a video about it on YouTube, and I will share a new video next week, updating on how everyone did with their goals.
