|All of our curriculum fits on one snug shelf!|
2) Friendly LOOOVES it. I mean she is just eating it up. She loves busy work. She loves trying new things. She loves all the silly songs and activities and Science and HISTORY. So that is rewarding.
I am hopeful that once we get past the sickies Roo will enjoy it more too. I do think I am going to have to tweak my curriculum choices for her a bit- she is not into her hand writing book. That's fine, I can find some thing she enjoys. She has the misfortune of being the oldest child, I don't know what that is like- but apparently it means that you feel you must do it all perfectly. I am not sure where this idea comes from- I am the QUEEN of "get er done! If it looks a tad weird slap the 'creative' label on it and move on!". I mean when it comes to craftie things and school work. I CAN be a perfectionist about some things, but then again I am also not going to lose sleep over projects either.
Not my Roo. She wants it to look "just so" and if it doesn't she gets very frustrated and crabby. Ah well, this is a great opportunity to practice "good enough" and doing your best and focusing on the positives.
|First Day - we made "Family Trees" for history.|
|After class sitting on the table?|
|Todays class- can you see all the awesome things that we've done this week? Collages and Friendly is VERY proud of being able to write her name.|
|Pip likes to work on projects too|
|As you can see we're slowly starting to get more settled here- the book shelf is filling up!|
So I am happy with our choice for this year and I think that this journey is going to be a lot of fun!
Oh some friends and I are also hoping to start a co-op (a small one) with some friends other friends who are also young home schoolers, which will be a lot of fun! :)
