So I got a homeschool cd from Confessions of a Homeschooler. I won't actually do the program with her for another year but I like to plan and be ahead! It's a lot of stuff to print and laminate so I'd rather be prepared and enjoy the process. Besides, I'll have to coordinate when I want to do everything and I'll have another child so I will probably be busy. Ha. Here's what I've done so far.
I printed out everything for the letter A. I laminated everything that needs to be laminated and cut the pieces. Some papers you don't laminate and the child cuts or colors on them. With those I decided to print 2 because I'll eventually do it with Hannah. Yes, I am going to be prepared!!
Then I decided that I wanted to store it all in one place and be organized so I know where everything is. For the small pieces I put them in baggies and labeled the baggies so I won't lose the pieces. Then I have this handy box my mom gave me the other year.
I've been using it to store my papers for Fit For Life, but won't need to anymore. So I cleaned it out and threw a bunch of stuff away.
Now it's my Homeschooling box! There's plenty of room for all kinds of organization to happen. I'm so excited.
Also, I go these jars and pressure canner from a FB group, Shop the House. I know the lady I bought these from at church. I plan to do salsa soon, apple sauce, and apple pie filling. I am so excited because Kyle has been doing things in my large laundry room to get it ready for all my jars.
I got all this stuff at a great deal....how much?? $40! 30 large jars and a pressure canner. Wow. Thank you God! I definitely have enough jars for all the canning I want to do.
Also, I'm thinking about having my mom do this cake for Abby's birthday. What do you think? I love it. It will be a Minnie Mouse themed party, so the cake will be something with her on it. This car is just so cute!
I like that your preschool stuff is tactile - great for engagement and fine motor! I LOVE the Jolly Phonics program for letter names and letter sounds. I'll be doing that with our little one to supplement whatever they do at preschool. Have fun!ReplyDelete
