We started TODAY..

And it was awesome! First, I can't believe how much we accomplished in just a couple hours! We covered phonics/reading, math, handwriting & spelling, science, and also had some music/dance time, storytime, calendar time, and free exploration!

The new classroom is working out wonderfully and the to older kids truly slept ALL NIGHT upstairs (something that NEVER happenned with them in seperate rooms)

Today was just day one but gives me a little bit of confidence that this will be successful.

Re: We started TODAY..

Yay! That's great news! We started almost 3wks ago and I can't believe how well it's going either. Last year, K, was a struggle a lot of days. So far, he is excited every day to do 1st. He pushes me. I don't know what the change is, but it is wonderful!

Congrats on a wonderful first day!!

Re: We started TODAY..

Thanks! We are brand new to homeschooling so this was definitely better than I expected.. oh AND we were going through DD's phonics reader and here the little stinker CAN READ! She's apparently been playing with my head and acting like she can't figure out how to put together sounds and today I'm going through the word list and she just starts spitting them out "Jan, Jan, Dan, Fast, Dan, Dad, And, Ran, Fast, Ran, Dan, Dad, And, See, Me..." I was SHOCKED! Honestly I thought she was really struggling but apparently my mini me is even more like me than I already knew, LOL.

Re: We started TODAY..

Yeah for an awesome first day! Journal it, and reread how great things can be when you have one of those not so great days. Sometimes it's hard to remember the good days in the midst of the bad ones and is all too easy to get discouraged so bottle stuff like this up!
