My facebook feed is full of back to school fun today, and I wish all the little (and not so little) students the best!
We aren’t starting back at school until next week, but I thought I’d post a run down of our planned materials for Justus’s SK year…
For phonics/reading materials, I’m using a couple different books…
I also downloaded a million free montessori resources and spent countless hours cutting and laminating and cutting again. (thanks Rebecca Coyne for the link) Got some great stuff, like these for example….
I know it looks like a lot of workbooks, and it is. But we discovered last year that it’s kind of our style. The ones we are using this year are bright and colourful and we are looking forward to digging in! We are planning on 3 mornings a week, with lots of fun and playing and learning on those 3 mornings AND the rest of the week! I have to say that I am more convinced and excited about homeschooling than I have ever been. Can’t wait until Monday!!
I’ll spill the details on everything I’ve gathered to keep the June Bug busy during our school times tomorrow. Crossing my fingers they work! She’s already had a run in with school supplies… discovered that she thinks purple glue sticks look like make up!
