Can you feel a sense of loss over something you never had? I did not expect the emotions that would surface seeing all the first day of Kindergarten photos of my daughter's preschool friends. One of my biggest worries about homeschooling is/was that my girls love school. Seeing "everyone" else experience this milestone stirred up some odd feelings. I'm not sure if I am sad or relieved.
|Agent E reading to Agent J one day this week|
I started the week with a general plan of what we would cover and then let Agent E pick what she wanted to do each day. We printed some pages on Italy (map, flag, the Coliseum, the Leaning Tower of Pisa . . . Italy is our country of the week), did some math (single-digit subtraction), talked about the five senses, read a few Bible stories, and did some word scrambles/word searches (she loves those). Oh, and we listened to some Italian songs and vocabulary while we colored. (Coloring is big around here.) Mostly she enjoyed playing with Agent J while Agent A observed and made mental notes. We also watched Hello Kitty Goes to the Movies about 10 times. Once in French. Thursday I told her we were taking all of our current library books back on Friday (today), so we had a lot of reading time Thursday afternoon.
To sum, overall our first week went well, but I'm feeling a bit disorganized. Oh, well . . . there's always next week.
