It has been 2.5 months since I’ve blogged. I didn’t mean to take such a long break, but with it being summer, I didn’t really have a whole lot to talk about dealing with school. I have considered writing more about our life and school, but haven’t decided yet.
It’s been a difficult and a bit overwhelming few weeks, but I was able to gather, plan, and clean to prepare for the first day of homeschool. It went well, but there is going to be a major learning curve, on my part, when it comes to teaching two kids different material, at the same time. Especially when I have one who want my full attention.
We started out with the pledge and our morning binders that I created. They both have the same pages so we were able to work on that together. We then moved on to Tanner’s math worksheets and Wesley’s preschool Reading the Alphabet curriculum. Tanner needs a little more time to learn how to do work more independently (since he’s always had my undivided attention with school), but it was really great to see him work diligently on his math while I worked with Wesley. When he completed math, I gave him some cutting practice worksheets that he loved. It kept him occupied while I finished with Wesley’s work. Once that was done I had Wesley go play while I focused on Tanner’s Language Arts/reading.
All in all, it was a good start to the school year. I have a lot to learn, still. Especially once CC starts up next week!
