Preschool Corner ~ No Cooperation

Try as hard as I may, this was NOT a week where either of the boys were super-cooperative.

As in not cooperative at all. It was just splendid, really.

We did spend a lot of time watching the momma robin outside our window and going over our robin lapbook that we put together last year. Otherwise we spent time trying to get some ‘schooltime’ done…which ended up being more of a discipline/training opportunity.

Over and over again.

Behavior issues were flaring up all over the place, so I opted the route of ‘training’ this week…and even though it didn’t go as planned, it was all fine. :)

Ready to Link Up?

Share what you are doing with your kids! The updated guidelines can be found here if you need them.

NOTE: Please link your exact blog post to the Mr. Linky below and link back here too! The point of Preschool Corner is to share resources with others, so please include a link back so that your readers can find some other great blogs and ideas to use with their children.

I DO know that some of you have some rockin’ plans to share with us this week though, so start linking up!

~ MckLinky is having some issues, so if you can’t link up, leave a comment with your post link and I’ll link you all up when it is working correctly. :)

    I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one with "training weeks". We had a very rough day yesterday, as a matter of fact.

    Thanks for all that you do!

  • I want to know more about "training" - how does it happen on the weeks like this? Despite my positive posts, we do have days when daughter just wants to play, and it's fine with me. After all, she is only 3.5 :)

  • I hear ya sister, we have days like that too, or sometimes weeks ;o) No worries though, character training is more important!

  • Must be in the air! My little guy has been so defiant this week. Between him and our new pup, I'm exhausted! :P

  • I had the opposite problem - mom was not cooperating. I didn't feel like doing much - I think I am ready for a break. Hope your training proves fruitful next week!

    Thanks for hosting. =)
