|materials for the week|
Back in August I posted HERE that I would begin homeschooling in September. HA! What was I thinking?!
My goal is to help expand my son's learning. Complicated cirriculums are not for me, as this is PREK and I want my son to have more experiences than "desk time". Museums, art, zoo....all these places/things are teaching tools too!!
Today was my first attempt at teaching. I prepared a list of what I wanted to accomplish the night before, and prepared the following activities:
Playdoh basket ready with dough and tools
Coloring page (Saint of the week) with very few crayons in a special holder
Baking soda/vinegar activity ready to do with droppers and food coloring nearby
It might not seem like much, but those simple acts did two things 1) helped keep me accountable to actually do the activities and 2)saved me time during the day
Storytime at library
Selected books to go with our theme/letter of the week at the library
Talking about the letter of the week repeatedly
Read about the Saint of the week
We did not read our BOB book but will do so tomorrow
Simple, but a start.
We will be doing Before Five in A Row, but I need to shop on ebay for the book selection and also do some prep work. I would rather hold off and be prepared myself instead of throwing something together.
We will also be exploring Ants this week.
I am going to be looking for a basic phonics program too!
