Our Newest Journey

Here’s a few shots of our first month of homeschooling.

(Thanks LC for our sign!)

Lots of people ask why homeschool? 
The answer: So I can play with school supplies.

We start each day with a family devo time.

Then it’s calendar board time. Here we talk about the days of the week, colors, our Bible verse, weather. As much fun as I had creating this board, I still have to change/add things to it soon.

I started AB tracing and copying capitol A. She did great, but tired quickly. So, I backed up and worked on connecting the dots and drawing lines. Much more her speed...
EB did great with her early handwriting assignments, but also wanted to connect the dots!

We use some workbooks. However, I am not overly excited about the ones we have currently. We’ll use them while we have them, but won’t be replacing them with the same brand.

By far, my favorite resource I’m using right now is this book!

Here’s what she looks like on the inside, somewhere around Lesson 5.

Learning patterns of three consecutive items: apples, pencils, letter (A or E).

Thanks for following along with our homeschooling show & tell.
PS- Just kidding about the school supplies addiction! Not really.

I have a box of school supplies just because I am addicted to them. By far, my favorite place in Walmart is the school supply section. Thanks for the pictures. I wish I was homeschooling again after reading/viewing your blog.
