The First Week

Our first week of homeschooling as gone pretty well, I’d say. The Lesson plans are for 4 days, so Fridays will be for practicing reading, practicing using scissors, and other such things. At least for the first 12 weeks of school…after that we will be adding more subjects. Anyway…this week Liberty learned the 3 different sounds A makes and she practiced writing and some other things. She did pretty good. She is an antsy child, so it’s hard to get her to sit still…plus she isn’t used to having to do school. Today we reviewed the previous lessons and she took a little test. She did great!

This evening we went to our first meeting for the local homeschool group. That went well, too. Each family takes a month to plan a field trip. I got January…so I’ll be thinking about something to plan…ideas anyone? (Keep in mind we live in a small, fairly isolated town).

001this is Libbs practicing her big and little A’s with a dry erase marker on a mirror…just to make it a little more fun.

And here’s a verse I read the other morning…

“Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, The God who is our salvation.”  ~Psalm 68:19

First, BRILLANT idea to use a dry erase marker on a mirror! Definitely tucking that gem away. Second, January field trip... first thing I thought of was snow ice cream (but guess that's more of an activity than a field trip). At least you have a few months to see what other people do. Glad to hear your first week went well.
