Man there is so much to catch up on. Seems our week was sooo busy I hardly had quality time to blog anything good! 8)
Well this week we had a farewell playdate with friends (one friend and kids are moving about 2 hours away), we hosted a pizza party with friends and had some good outside fun! We a few weeks left until school starts for us (Sept. 7th) and we have a lot to do before that to end our Summer fun!
1st here is our school schedule that I finally finished up:
Zachary - 1st and 2nd grade work schedule:
Mondays - Math, Spelling, Reading, Writing, Social Studies and Phys Ed
Tuesdays - Reading, writing, science, art and phys ed
Wednesday - We have Fall HS Camp for 8 weeks (which has science, phys ed and other subject incorporated into it) plus reading, writing, health
Thursday - Reading, writing, science, music and phys ed
Friday - sign langl, math, spelling, reading, writing, s. studies and phys ed
Saturday - reading and writing and phys ed
We school 6 days a week (probably 7 honestly) so we can shorten our hours per day and still get in our 900 hours per year.
Also library 1 time a week (maybe more), field trips and playdates. We incorporate a lot of subjects into 1 activity. Reading, writing and spelling will be 1 actual worksheet or activity, so it seems like a lot but really it's not.
Here is a picture of those painting containers from Discount School Supply I was telling you all about. They are great!
I see that Staples has their penny sales this week on notebooks and more. We have a good amount of stuff to start off with but I can't resist those sales! I also was able to find some great stuff at our Dollar Tree yesterday. A whole packet of Story Starters which are great and a variety of Folder Games...which are similar to board games but they are all in a folder...similar to lapbooking. Can't beat it for a $ 1.
Hubby is out looking for a new (or additional) vehicle. His car is only 4 years old and has over 160,000 miles on it 8( He drives far to work every day.
I am going to post also pictures of the new school room design I just got done with...
