For some Spring Break is here. For others, it was a month ago. We fall into the later category. We took our Spring Break at the beginning of March, when the local schools were on break. We have started following the local school calendar, for the biggest part of the year, since the dance studio schedule follows that. Also, the girls get so busy in the summer with trips and camps that we need that time off for those. I do still count them toward school but at the high school level, they don’t often correspond to a course credit.
Spring Break also means a variety of things for people, especially in the current climate with so much shut down or functioning differently. We just took the time off from regular school. Guess what, though. That doesn’t mean learning and school coursework didn’t happen. This is true because I have two high school students who were very interested in keeping up with things or working on projects that needed their attention. Having Spring Break meant they had some extra, undedicated time to spend on it. Debate and artwork for the Lads to Leaders entries got extra attention this week.
My middle school student spent some time on artwork but she spent a good deal of the week wanting to play games. So we played quite a few games during Spring Break. Some of our favorites can be found in this post from a couple of months ago about games for middle and high school. A couple of other posts about games that you might be interested in include 10 Wonderful Word Games and Game Ideas.
Spring Break has lots of options and lots of way to spend it. How did you spend yours? Or maybe you are Spring Breaking now, so what are you up to?
