The Fuchs Academy Homeschool progress Sept. 8th-17th
We started our first official year of homeschooling on Wed. Sept. 8th 2010. Alyvia (4) will be homeschooled in Preschool/Kindergarten and Wyatt (2) will be homeschooled in Preschool. They are both eager to learn and I am here to teach them and guide them in the best way I know how. So.... we begin this thing called homeschooling that I have been talking about for the past 4+ years. I'm excited and nervous but determined not to fail. Tom is supportive and helping me in many ways.
So.... the first week and a half have been interesting. We are trying to get the hang of this routine thing because I have never really followed one. I'm regretting it now but what can I do?? The kids are loving the daily activites that have included:
Going apple picking with Great Grandma
Baking an apple pie.
Having apple shaped jell~o jigglers for snack.
Learning all about apples.
and making apple prints on paper bags.
You can probably tell that our theme these past few weeks was apples. We also made apple crisp, apple muffins and applesauce for our little brother. Apples were present everyday from baking to coloring to books borrowed from the library. Our shape was circle, letter "A", number 1. We are progressing very well in my opinion and I am excited for next week. Our theme will be balloons. Shape=oval, letter "B", number 2. Till then I will be using every teachable moment to better my children.
