Re: Kindergarten questions
We spend about an hour- an hour and a half on kindergarten each day, sometimes a little more if we're doing an extensive craft, cooking, gardening, etc.
I don't grade Kindergarten and I don't know when I will start (my oldest is doing kindergarten right now). I have a checklist of things that I hope she will master and I just mark them off as she does.
I love the idea of workboxes, but we haven't tried it yet, so I'm no help there!
