K4 and 1st Grade Week 2

This last week, we tried to really get into the full swing of a school routine.  I had Little Pumpkin start with Phonics, then Math, Grammar, and Handwriting. 

Then I had the other two join us for Sonlight read alouds and Bible time.  Then Sweet Pea worked on a couple pages of Get Ready for the Code.

In the middle of the week, we had house guests and a henna party, so we missed a day of work, but flexibility is one reason we choose to homeschool!

Our house guests also brought us the A Beka 1st Grade DVDs, so when we resumed our regularly scheduled school program, we adjusted to begin with the DVDs for Bible time, then take a break for Sonlight P3/4 curriculum books, read aloud all together.  After that, while the baby is napping, the younger two girls played while Little Pumpkin watched the Phonics portion of the DVD, followed by Math U See, First Language Lessons, and back to the DVD for Writing.  This worked out really well for us this week.  I'll let you know how it goes!



  1. yay for a good week! We are starting tomorrow.. I work in the office on Mondays so we will be doing 4 days a week :-)

Join the conversation, glorify the Lord, proclaim his goodness. I'd love it if you did.
