Anyone else out there working and teaching at the same time? Welcome to September 2020! Hopefully by now the kids are back to school, and life is getting somewhat back to normal--but if it’s not and we’re all still home schooling, here are a few ideas to help keep you and the kiddos from going crazy. 

Like many of you, I’m working from home. In addition, this fall finds me settling into my role as a 4th grade teacher, which got me thinking: what was I learning in 4th grade and how did I absorb what I learned? Well, I’ll tell you, it wasn’t from staring at a computer all day. I loved hands-on activities and field trips, so that’s what the Kasprzak 4th grade class has been doing.

For instance, the Sam Houston Memorial Museum is a great place to start. You’ll learn not just historical events, but also our own local history. Next, try Space Center Houston where there is plenty to do all day that’s both educational and hands on. To top it off, if you get the Houston CityPASS, you save money on the Space Center, the Aquarium, and the Houston Museum.

These are just a few ideas that are fun for the whole family. Importantly, these hot spots are practicing social distancing and keeping facilities clean and sanitized. 

Until next month, keep your head up and remember time and patience will take care of everything.
