Back in the saddle again today. YAY for a return to normalcy!
Starting this week, we will be following (with a few exceptions for holiday weeks) the Kumon Letter Order for our introduction to the alphabet. Our letter this week is L l.
This was one of our letters last year and we talked about ladybugs at that time; since *Mommy* didn’t want to do ladybugs again, I gave the Little Lady a choice between ladybugs and lions for this year’s Letter L l focus.
She chose Ladybugs.
That’s ok — it’s not like there are only three lessons one can do with ladybugs!
In addition L l and ladybugs, we’ll also be focusing on the color Red and Circles.
For our Bible time, I am changing from my original plan of using the Songs for Saplings verses and worksheets. Our new church has a WONDERFUL children’s ministry and part of the Sunday School curriculum includes a Monthly Memory Verse, as well as take-home handouts, ideas, and theme talks for parents to do with the little ones.
Rather than have a separate verse from Church, I decided to focus on their Memory Verse curriculum for our homeschool.
Here is the plan for this week:
This week’s resources:
- Confessions of a Homeschooler (Letter Ll Printables)
- Kumon Tracing Book
- Counting Coconuts (Sensory Box/Playdough Inspiration)
I kept the same amount of activities as week one, BUT if this week follows the pattern the Little Lady set (i.e. completing everything quickly and wanting to do more), then I’ll be building in more activities from here on.
In addition to the Little Lady’s preschool, I will be working this week on beginning Tot School with Mr. Boy. He’s now 13 months and loves activities that work his motor skills and cognitive development, so we’ll be doing a lot of intentional play focusing on those areas!
Questions of the Week:
How do you balance homechool when you have more than one child? Do you have a separate school time for each or does everyone complete their lessons and/or activities together?
