Homeschooling while Sick

We are into our 3rd week of mono. Luckily, the first week which my oldest spent on the couch with a fever and being force-feed liquids was our regularly scheduled "fun" week.

Every 5 to 7 weeks we take a week to just do fun stuff like update our book of time, play math games and do large projects. This is a time that we use to take a break from our regular work so that concepts can be processed.

I wasn't sure what to expect for the second week of mono (which can last as long as 4 weeks or more) so I scheduled a light work week where we did practice math sheets and reading. We also did our regualarly scheduled history readings.

This week, I now know that my girls will have some energy in the mornings but by 4 pm will be running a fever and be back to the couch. We are going to try doing our normal workload but if that doesn't work we will do math, reading and our history read-alouds.

Wish us luck.
