Homeschool Teacher - Lesson Plan & Newsletter
March 22, 2007

Pronunciation: (gOOf'ôf", -of"), [key]
—n. Slang.
a person who habitually shirks work or responsibility; idler
Goof Off ! Goof Off ! Goof Off!
Today is National Goof Off Day! Spend the day goofing off and having fun! (Still do the math challenge!)

One of the best things about home schooling is the ability to really enjoy your kids! Here are some fun ideas for celebrating goof-off day! (and yes that goofy little boy is mine!)
Slow Dance

Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down. Don't dance so fast.
Time is short The music won't last.

Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask "How are you?"
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done,
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?

You'd better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last

Ever told your child
We'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say "Hi"?

You'd better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift - thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.
