We officially started Kindergarden last week! It’s a bit earlier then the surrounding public schools and most homeschoolers, but I already had it all planned and H was excited about starting, so why not?
We started the 1st day of Kindergarden with swirled chocolate chip pancakes on a fancy plate!
We read an old golden book (that used to be mine!) about Kindergarden:
We spent lots of time playing with play doh:
H found some recipes in her my little pony coloring book. And of course, we just had to make it!
H wanted to start making fall decorations. This one I found on Pinterest:
And H came up with these herself. Of course I ended up making most of the leaves. Then we taped them on a piece of thread and then hung them from her curtain rod.
We visited Ron Jon’s and the Cocoa beach surf shop with friends so H could spend the gift card she won from the library!
H received an early bday present in the mail and had lots of fun dressing up with her new dress up set:
Of course we did lots of other “school” stuff too! H learned to read “-ig” words (big, pig, fig, wig), we did the first chapter in her new math book, Life of Fred: Apples, and we rowed through They Were Strong and Good (we’re finishing up the study this week, and I’ll post about it soon). We had a great first week of school and I’m looking forward to the rest of the year!
I truly love homeschooling. I love being able to spend time with H and K. I love the flexibility of it. I love being able to give H focused attention and planning lessons around her learning styles and interests. I love how H tells me how much she loves doing school with me and doesn’t ever want to go to other school. I love the cuddles we get to enjoy as we read and study. I love getting to see her learn and love learning. And I love how she’s constantly asking and begging to do school! That’s how learning and school should be!
