First Week of Homeschool!!

We finished our first week of homeschool last Friday!!  What a wonderful week it was!!  Words can not explain how it felt to teach my son, watch him learn, hear his questions, see his educational weaknesses and strengths and the main thing... knowing his is being taught Math, Science, Language Arts, Geography, History and Reading EVERYDAY!!  As I wrote in my previous post, we pulled him out of public school because he was not getting the education that we wanted for him.

Our letter of the week was F and our themes were Seasons, Day/Night, First People and Tadpole & Frogs.  Along with our curriculum, we did many fun crafts and science experiments.  On Monday, Halloween, we did a "fun" day.  It was Halloween themed, but I incorporated our letter of the week!

We also started "The Life Cycle of a Frog" in science!!  Landon really liked this topic and I added a neat frog craft to the literature.

We are doing a four day schedule (which means our days are a little longer) so we can use Fridays for field trips.  We went to the Apple Orchard on Friday and both boys really enjoyed it!

I work a good portion of the weekend putting together next weeks curriculum and I am super excited to start week 2!!
