Happy Monday and Happy Homeschooling!
August 12th is “World Elephant Day”! I hope you can take some time to study these magnificent creatures. Here’s some amazing free resources to help you out.
The first Monday is August is always our start date for “Back to School”! So, this past Monday we dove right into our family’s 22nd year of home educating. This is the beginning of high school for my youngest son! We accumulated 78 hours of summer school, so we’ve got a 13 day head start on the year.
My daughter blessed be (again) with personalized vinyl for my new binder, coffee cup, and t-shirt! “I homeschool for the money and fame”!In case you want to order personalized gifts, she would love having your business! Find Em’s Treasures on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Emstreasureshairbows/
We put some graffiti style school supplies on chalkboard wall for our backdrop for “1st Day” photos.
Ha! Check out our “school shoes”!
After our traditional “Back to Homeschooling” brunch, we sorted through our new supplies.
Lastly, we had a long talk about what our goals were for the new year and what they do and don’t like about the way we do school, and how we can adapt those ideas into this year’s school work.
Have you started your “school year” yet? What do you do to make the first day back special?
Each month I like to offer my kids a bunch of activities that’ll spark their imagination and creativity. I think the stories and activities a person can come up with when offered an open-ended idea is amazing.
For this activity you will need: Balloons, something to juggle, an audio/video device, paper, and pencil, and anything else you can think of.
