Woohoo, the first 3 days of school are finished!! We started on the 15th and it has been an interesting 3 days. Overall, it has been good getting back to a routine and officially kicking off Kindergarten. Of course, the last 3 days have also revealed some necessary tweaks to the schedule as mom was a bit ambitious with her schedule and didn’t account for the split pea fog that had settled into their brains. 🙂
As for curriculum:
Math – Math-U-See finishing up Primer book
Language Arts – Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading, McGuffey Eclectic Primer, copywork from these items and from History/Science
History/Science – Creation Unit Study, day 1 complete and prayerfully the weekend will allow me to post what we used/did
We read some fun books during our morning read-aloud:
Brother and sister story of little brother losing items as they journey home.
A delightful rhyming story with animals and foods, the kids loved it!!
Also, as a part of our unit study, we did do a volcano experiment today.
Here is our Starbuck’s volcano, named because that is my frappuccino bottle inside that paper and modeling clay. 🙂
Here are your other supplies sans baking soda as it is already in the bottle.
Yes, our grass is pretty dead, hubby rely’s on God’s sprinkler system and it hasn’t been working in our area this year. 😉
Next week is a full week of class, so off to tweak the schedule, secure any additional library books and review what needs to return to the library. Enjoy the weekend!!
