Today was our first day of homeschooling, and it went great. I forgot how tired my brain gets, though. Since I forgot to take pictures, here’s some pictures of a few weeks ago.
We started off with Bible time. We have a zillion childrens’ Bibles, so I tried out a new one this morning. It has awesome pictures. Then we did some math, and swapped over to our reading comprehension (Beatrix Potter with questions afterward). Then Munchkin 1 got to sit and draw for a bit while I drilled letters with Munchkin 2. She does best just singing the alphabet song.
Then Munchkin 1 and I reviewed all of his vocabulary words we collected this summer, and I declared us finished for the day. It was about an hour and a half of non-stop work. I know if I was doing a real kindergarten, we’d break out the gluesticks and glitter. But I don’t have that much stamina.
This morning I wanted to make something special to have for a snack. So I tried to make blueberry muffins with my stored-up cherries. They came out kind of goopy. I declared them turnovers.
They tasted wonderful and we’ve devoured nearly all of them. I might have to make another batch tomorrow.
So that was our first day of school! Thank goodness for naptime. 🙂
