Homeschool Monday

Apr 6, 2009

Yes that would be little Izzy on our table! Not my choice but after I told Kiersten she could not hold her while she worked on her writing this is where she eneded up. And of course she just plopped herself right down! To say the least, Kiersten is in charge of cleaning the table really well before we eat tonight! But she is cute isn't she?!

We had a great day at school, though a little longer than our normal day, but still good. We started a new unit study on dogs that Kiersten is very excited about. We are taking a small break from Five in a Row to do this. We also started working on a pizza pattern from Buggabugs that Kiersten is SO excited about! She is planning on using all the patterns we bought last week to feed all of her Webkina in her webkinz village that is growing bigger everyday in her room! She loved finding this in her workboxes today and couldn't wait to get to that one! Of course I had to set a time limit of 30 minutes so we could actually finish school today. But hopefully by the end of the week we will have a completed pizza! :)

The workboxes are going just wonderful and this weekend I actually planned our next 40 days! That sure feels good! The next 2 weeks are completely planned and ready and the rest is in outline form just waiting for the things to be gathered. I am such a planner and it felt great to get this all done this weekend. Now that I'm not so busy with the business stuff and event stuff I was doing so much off I can concentrate more on school and it's a wonderful feeling! Of course Kiersten would love to have me a little more divided in my time I think since school isn't her favorite thing to do, but she doesn't get much of a say in this one!

    What kind of booster is your daughter sitting in? I have a really shrimpy 5 year old starting school this year and I need something to raise her up. Your daughter seems to be at a great height to the table.

    Hi, I am fascinated with the workboxes, I noticed though that the http you have in h the link for Kristina has a typo in it. This is what the addy looks like when it comes up.

    It should look like this:

    Hope you get it fixed soon....Thanks for the cool pics of this system.
