Hello friends , we got through a busy week of homeschooling , it went OK well it all went OK until learning phonics in a work book came in to it and the stubborn little monkey digs her heels in and well that is that really .....i just quietly put the book away i don't want to force her because learning should be fun and a pleasant experience not tears and anger and stress, but apart from that it was a fun week of learning the upper and lower case Aa ,started our letter of the week scrapbook, done some work sheets , math ,science , painting using a apple as a stamp, and so many other fun things.. So yesterday we took a drive we was heading to the honey farm but they close Saturday for religious purposes so we will do that another day now , so we headed to a market close bye and then had lunch in the park bye the river feed the ducks and a play it was a good afternoon nice and relaxing, this morning i wrote up a weekly report of schooling that will be done this coming week , tried to figure out office works so i could do a weekly photo report for her folder, its done just but not how i wanted it , I'm thinking maybe year 2013 might be the time to take a computer course lol
Hello friends , we SURVIVED our first day home schooling it was a really good morning we read a few pages of Molly's early readers Bible, done our calender ,sang about today's sight word, and sang the week day song , done 2 work sheets on upper and lower case Aa , practised writing our letter Aa and writing today's sight word, done some number work and reading , even fitted in some science this afternoon ,so id say we had a pretty good day , though it doesn't feel like there's enough hours in the day lol

So we don't have a school room , though we have made good use of our dinning room down one end of it , we have always used this room as a craft/sewing/painting/sensory/homework/computer room lol so now this is were most of our learning will take place as it has done for years it's just now iv had to add a lot more to the collection but that's OK i like to have everything were i can see it and know where it is for easy access.
