Last fall, we started homeschooling. Through much thought, prayer, and picking the brains of veteran homeschoolers, we made the decision to homeschool our kids. In later posts, I will describe our thoughts as we went through the process to make this decision.
Since our oldest is only 4 1/2, we are doing preschool at home pretty lightheartedly and just having fun learning new things and getting somewhat of a schedule to prepare for more "serious" school in the future months/years.
We are currently using the Letter of the Week Curriculum from another blog that I follow. It's a really fun way to go through the alphabet. Since our preschooler is almost five, it's pretty simple for her, but I supplement with phonics activities and other reading materials. Our two year old participates with us and the girls enjoy working on some of the activities and crafts together.
Each Tuesday, I plan to dedicate posts to homeschool topics such as resources, craft ideas, and a glimpse into our homeschooling world.
In fact, here is a glimpse into this week as we take on the letter "L". Take note of what happens when Presley joins us in the last two photos.
