Remember this post back in September? Well, we had a good run until my grandma passed away in October and then I just couldn't get caught up enough to prepare lesson plans. Then Thanksgiving, JMac's surgery and Christmas came and there seemed to be no hope to get back.
We didn't put off learning completely though. I am always looking for opportunities to teach just in our every day routine. That's the good thing about homeschooling, you don't have to have a structured setting to teach
Lately, the girls have been voicing their desire to have school again and since they seem to be struggling a little with their abc's and numbers, I decided now was the time to get back to homeschooling.
So, we started back this week with numbers and counting. The girls for some reason skip the same numbers every time we count…"one, two, fwee, six, seben, nine, ten!" I decided to go back to basics and keep it simple this go round.
This week we are using these counting bears and this printable from Confessions of a Homeschooler. Since the counting bears set we have wasn't enough bears (the girls were fighting over who could fill their worksheets first…before they ran out of bears), I ordered another set and then more of the bears.
They will also have number themed coloring sheets, counting themed board games and books about numbers.
Once we get the numbers down, we will go back to the alphabet.
So that's it. We are back to homeschooling….for now.
