After a busy Christmas break we are back in session. We took 2 weeks off at Christmas time. We traveled to see family and celebrated my little girl’s 6th birthday. Wow! I can’t believe how fast time passes and I have a 6 year old. She is very happy to be 6. Her goal was to be reading by the time she was 6 and she is a reader. I don’t think that she realizes how much of a reader she is. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching her to read and learning some phonics tools along the way.
My goals for this semester is to finish our curriculum. I love the McRuffy curriculum. It takes it slowly and has plenty of hands on experience to make my girl happy. I also plan to look ahead to 1st grade and see what our goal is for next year. I also am also making it a goal to blog regularly about our experience.
I am also going to be better about adding science and art to our school week. This means that I need to do more regular planning. To help with that area I bought an editable pdf homeschool planner from Homeschool Creations. I am loving it so far. My question to myself is why I haven’t done this sooner. My planner has been a journal notebook. It worked but I was finding I needed something more. I think that this is going to help me have more of a efficient planning sessions.
