The new school year is fast approaching. This will be our first “real” year of homeschool where Abigail will start Kindergarten and Sarah will do a more “formal” preschool.
Back in April Jonathan and I went to a homeschool conference where we decided on a Kindergarten curriculum from My Father’s World. It uses a unit study approach that incorporates reading, phonics, math, science, Bible, etc into 26 weekly units (one for each letter of the alphabet. I imagine Sarah will follow along for a good deal of it, but I will probably supplement her with more of the basics (ABC’s, and 123’s).
This past weekend we braved IKEA with all three girls to buy another Expedit shelving unit. We already have the smallest version and were going to get another one for our school room, but decided to get a large one for our living room and use the one we had already for the school room. Too much information? Sorry.
We’ll be doing most of our school work in the dining room. I finished organizing our supplies and such today. I am excited to have everything in one place. Last year a lot of our supplies were in plastic tubs in my closet, which led to a lot of messes and a lot of digging for things.
All we have left is waiting for a few books to come in the mail and a few small supplies to buy!
