Before I fall asleep…

Before I fall asleep…

posted in Uncategorized |

… I want to tell you about how our first day of homeschooling went.

I’m at the stage of my pregnancy that whenever I sit down it’s like the Sand Man comes and gently sprinkles sleeping dust in my face and I start to drift very quickly into sleep. Doesn’t bode well for driving.

Anyway.

Big girl was very excited about having ’school time’ today because she knew that I had bought stickers just for the occasion. And she’s a sticker MANIAC. Things went really well, she had lots of fun and I did too. And the best part of all was that little girl happily played with blocks in their bedroom and then came out and did some colouring with her crayons while we did school.

I did learn something, though. Doing a craft with a 3 year old requires me to leave all perfectionistic tendencies behind. My oldest daughter is really good at cutting with scissors. She does it all the time. But for some reason she decided that the stomach of the cow didn’t need to be an oval, a square was perfectly acceptable. (we had to cut out the body part individually so we could then paste them together). And why did the cow have to be black and white? Purple and orange are just right in her eyes. So we have a wacky looking cow hanging up on our bulletin board, but that’s okay, because she made it.

Thank you, Lord, that you’ve given me the opportunity to stay home with my kids. Please (I beg you) remind me of days like today when the going gets tough, which I know it will.

    Hi Michelle

    Thanks for the Letter of the Week website information - I found the website and have been printing off some things to do with the children. My oldest is 4 1/2 years old and off to school in June - but these will be great to go over all of the letters before starting school. Thanks!

    Well done YOU! Letting her do her thing is worth 100 times more than having a perfectly colored cow. BESIDES EVERYONE has black and white cows. Only the SPECIAL people have orange and purple ones. :D

    Reminds me of the Hershey’s commerical where everyone and everything is made of chocolate. That’s my kind of cow!

    Wilm, I’m really glad that you’re enjoying the website! We’re having fun with it. I started on the preparatory curriculum but I think we’re goign to cruise through it pretty fast because my daughter already has a good grasp of some of the letters and she’s dying to learn more, so I don’t know if just one letter a week is going to cut it. We’ll have to see how it goes.
