In homeschooling, there are times that it gets done very quickly. Your child might ask for more things to do other than answering textbooks. There are days that it may be slow and your kids might just need an activity boost to start schooling. I am so glad I found free downloadable printables that I can turn into enriching activities for my kids.
Here is little G lacing up one of our letter of the week theme. He said he will not enjoy this activity because it looks hard. But when I taught him how to do it, that it’s just simply going up and down and connect the yarn all around the holes, he grasped the idea and he’s so proud that he can really do it.
He didn’t hesitate to do another lacing activity. When his preschool brother saw him enjoying it, he enjoyed doing this activity too but with support. Will do a separate post of the things that my preschooler has enjoyed doing in our school.
To let him review counting, little G also did some pin counting and clipping them into the Number dot cards.
He also learned a little bit Geography by learning what is a World map, Globe and Compass rose. We’re planning to do lapbooks with his work so he could let his Daddy, Grandma and other friends to see it and that he could pick it easily and review his lessons.
He got to do Leaf Imprinting for his Art subject.
He enjoyed using the magnifying glass for his Science subject.
He also got to trace and write the Pledge of Allegiance. He is working on memorizing it as he recite it everyday in school.
He also enjoyed manipulating the pattern blocks into shapes of numbers, alphabets and picture art.
We got to visit the local library many times. They always have monthly show room and other fun activities for kids there.
These are a few of the books we borrowed in the library for our reading time at home.
These are a few of the things that my kids do in our homeschool. I haven’t included here the Music, Phys. Ed and other subjects we have done in real setting but we really did quite a few. I must say we’re doing better for the month of September. What’s more exciting is that my 3 year old is picking up lots of information too. I hope he can catch up quickly when his next school year start. I really don’t want to expect too much as every child has their own learning pace. Homeschooling is really a blessing primarily for kids so they can be safe and learn new wholesome activities at home and outdoors.
