Today we did a trip planning homeschool session to prepare the boys for our roadschool RV journey. We went through some basic planning steps for RV travel. It was very… insightful. I suppose that is the best word for it.
Task 1: Jobs
We will all have jobs on the road. This is in contrast to our current set-up in which the kids request items incessantly and we either deliver or ignore them. See Roadschooling: My 5 Step Plan for details on how I plan to whip them into shape. It’s brilliant.
- Mom: Grease and sewage (no thanks.)
- Noah: Pipes (so basically nothing)
- Wyatt: Set the table
- Dad: Water and drive
- Sort (this was supposed to be sort through old toys, but he asked if he could just write “sort”, so there it is)
- Sell (stuff. he chose this over donate.)
- Move stuff
Pretty comprehensive. That just about covers it. Especially compared to my three-year-olds list, which you can decipher for yourself below.
As you can see, offloading planning to small children really can lighten the load. Their next job will be packing. Just another one of the Benefits of homeschooling 🙂
