Kindergarten Morning Board
We started school this week! I did not think I was ready, had not finished organizing the school room (dining room), but finishing up this project was a huge motivator for me to just do it. (I debated waiting a week or two until I was "ready." Well, I figured life will go on no matter what, so we might as well jump in.) We have had a great week so far, so I am glad we did! Here is how we are starting our day: This is geared towards Malachi mostly. I started homeschooling when Dylan was in 5K…

Back to School Calendar Book
Update: See this post for how my calendar book looks now! It evolved throughout the years to be more of a daily journal page in which we fill in information each day (on one page) instead of over a series of pages. It became more meaningful to the children having the skills all on one page* I get tons of e-mails asking me about calendar book. First, I want to clarify that this was NOT my original idea!
