First Day of School!

We started school today!!!
It was an altered version but it was school. That is the beauty of homeschool... you can mix it up easily. I was not prepared for the Math U See lesson so we did some number games and a couple simple worksheets. I can't find my phonics text so we placed site word Post-its all over the place. So with these alterations today looked like this...
  • Meeting Wall
  • Memory Work - phone number
  • Placed sight word Post-its (english/ spanish) everywhere
    • Math story & coordinating game
    • 2 counting worksheets
    • Listened and followed along to "I Can Read About Creepy Crawly Creatures"
    • Narrated things G remembered about ants
    • Read Aloud Countdown to Kindergarten and Donavan's Word Jar ch1
All in all a good first day! Oh, by the way, we started the day at the Eye Doctor for check-ups so it was also G's first eye exam and he learned a lot about pictures taken of the outside and inside of our eyes. BONUS Lesson!
