What We Learned in School Today ...

Homeschooling:  Year 8, Week 2 

Today I officially started "preschool" with my 3-year old.  I know, when you're 3 every day is a learning experience.  But my little one wanted to do school just like her older brother and sister.  So today we got out her books and her school supplies and got busy.  Who knew a slate, chalk and the letter A could be so much fun ...



LOOK!

We're doing a letter a week.  This week is the letter A.  Do you have any idea how many things actually start with the letter A?  Well we're finding things everywhere ... this is so much fun!



Then my son and I started our history timeline.  Ok, we've attempted time lines every year and for some reason we never keep up with it.  Our timeline from last year never made it past Moses and the Exodus.  See what I mean?  

This year we're studying American History.  My son's first history chapter was about Leif Eriksson (Ericson, Erickson, take your pick) finding North America.  Therefore, our timeline is starting in the year AD 1000.  Only 1008 years to go and we'll be up to date!


Tomorrow??  More adventures with the letter A, a fun science experiment, Chess Club, and grocery shopping.  Fun and education at every turn ...

... keep checking back for updates!

OK, did she draw that A by herself? I am very impressed. But, you know, I'm going to do preschool with Annabeth next year and I'll bet she'll be writing, too. Girls just seem to be able to do that. Is this the first year you're doing American History? Did I tell you my plan for history? It's a quasi-Classical method.
