Children stand in a line, spaced out to a little more than arm’s length. A bucket of water is at one end and an empty bucket is at the other end. Children have 3 beakers to pass the water from the full to the empty bucket, passing from hand to hand and remaining in order.
9 days ago we bought a 10 week old labradoodle puppy and named her Honey and she immediately changed not only our family life but our homeschooling life. Her presence has already meant a lot of sacrifices for us all and although Dh and I can bear this with a modicum of grace, the children are a bit more forthright and vocal about the changes they don't like! They were both desperate to get a puppy and now they are in for some serious character training in sacrifice and selflessness!
