We are making a few changes to our homeschool schedule. I mentioned here that we were finishing up the curriculum that we had been using and I was reading/researching other curriculums and methods of teaching.
Our morning Read-Aloud is for both girls and will consist of Bible stories, favorites, library picks, and/or phonological awareness books. The afternoon Read-Aloud will be for Norah (assuming Lucy continues to nap). She will read to me and I will read to her. We will have one chapter book that I will read from - the content will vary.
Each shelf has a different activity (I also intend on rotating activities with other things we have). For the 30 minutes of math time, the girls can pick and choose what activities they want to do. If they tend to gravitate towards the same thing each day, I will encourage them to choose something else. Some of our math manipulatives and life skills activities currently on the shelf include: Counting bears with activity cards that I downloaded from here, pattern blocks and pictures that I also downloaded from here, money with picture cards,
We having slowing started doing some of these various activities, but just randomly. Next week I am hoping to get into a normal routine.
