For the last 2 months, most of our homeschooling has been VERY basic. I've read them books about our topics and I've taught them the ASL letter of the week. We talked a lot about the subjects in casual conversation but we've done hardly any "real" homeschooling. As least we haven't home-schooled like I had been planning. But, the kids have played outside a lot (we had a long, unusual "Indian" summer) and they played together a lot. Besides, they're 3, 2, and 1 currently. There's plenty of time for schooling later. Sometimes I feel like a failure... but I'm also learning to accept life as it is happening now. And, really, it's not that bad.
Here are the themes I didn't blog:
d- duck (pond)
number line busy bag
spelling folder game
e- eggs (metamorphosis, frog and butterfly life cycles)*
r- rain (water cycle, rainbow, colors)
Nemo folder game
I've also been getting the house organized (again and again) and making/knitting Christmas gifts. Now that it's dark and rainy all day, I'd like to get back to planning more homeschooling activities. Next week, "g is for groceries."
