At this moment I’m sitting looking at my eldest reading aloud from a book. Since we started (March 20th to be exact) I see an improvement in how fast he’s reading and he seems to be enjoying it a bit more too! What are those odds?
The choice I had in the beginning of our stay-at-home-please phase was to either continue with their school work, or succumb to my desire to be lazy about this and leave it up to their smarty-pant-ness. (Is that even a word?). I guess I still have that choice and let me tell you, being stir crazy these past days haven’t helped the cause. Nevertheless, I’m happy that I’m being somewhat consistent and that when they’re having their teacher-class moment later, they can indicate having learnt some things at least.
Now why am I asking what’s next? Because I’m struggling with this concept for myself of course. I have been in this position – not being able to provide training nor popcorn to generate funds – before. And I’m still here. So I’m quite calm because I know in my gut that we are gonna be alright. Nevertheless I’ve gotten an idea to execute while awaiting the next phase.
One of the key things I’ve learnt through my belief, is that God has equipped each and every one of us with exactly what you need right this moment. Okay, I’ve been thinking. What do I have? I have internet. Check! I have computer(s). Check! I have kids. Check! I also have knowledge on Excel for example. Check! So, why not combine all these and create something of use for others?
That’s what I’m currently doing. Would love to use software like Camtasia to create awesome content. Don’t have that money as yet, so that’s something to work towards. So I found Camstudio which is a free powertool too.
So what’s next? Excel for toddlers anyone? Let me know your thoughts as usual below! We love to hear from you.
