We officially start school tomorrow. Things were put off slightly when our books didn't arrive on time. In fact, some of them are not yet here! Argh! It will be a slow and easy transition for us. I am planning on a thorough review of the Hooked on Phonics with my Preschooler. My first grader will start her language arts curriculum as well. We are doing a notebookingcurriculum this year, so they will also have the opportunity to decorate their notebooks any way they want. I find that my kids love being able to personalize things and take charge - even if it is of something as insignificant as their notebooks. We are all ready and excited to start the new year!
I began this blog to help me organize my homeschooling lesson plans. After two great years on the homefront, my kids are now in public school for the first time.
I try to never say never because change really is the only thing in life that you can count on. Education, whether I'm their teacher or not, is so important. My parents taught me that you never stop learning. If I can pass that along to my kids, I will have done very well. The direction isn't really changing, although their learning environment has. I will share what they are learning, what I think works, what doesn't work, and all the educational struggles we will surely go through. I welcome comments from anyone who would like to share their own children's educational experiences.
