The First Day of Third Grade

Today Turkey and Bunny went “back to school.”

For today, anyway, the school room is organized, books are on the shelves where they belong, the table is free of clutter–a week from now, it’ll probably be a completely different story, but today it looks good!

Turkey and Bunny are very excited about the things they’ll be learning this year, especially American History and writing in cursive. Here’s a brief rundown of our daily schedule:

In addition to all of that, we also have elective Fridays, where we’ll be learning about musical instruments, (we’ll be going through Those Amazing Musical Instruments, plus a coloring book), and composers, (we’re still using the Classical Kids Collection volumes one and two CDs), as well as horses, with Beautiful Feet’s History of the Horse. Plus we’ll use Fridays for playing educational games, such as Reading Roadway USA and the Scrambled States of America, and even the occasional Lego building activity, like the Lego White House from the Architecture series.

It’s going to be another great year–I’m so excited to get started!

  1. My oldest daughter is no longer living at home. I have everything emptied from her bedroom. I have repaired all the holes, removed the closet doors (I am leaving those stained), sanded the windows and about half the floorboard (still have to finish the floorboard and sand the trim around the closet… then I still have to paint the ceiling, walls and trim. I don’t have a table, yet. My husband will probably make that so I need to paint that too. Then I will have a school/guest room too!

    Luckily the neighbor kids don’t go back to school until the Tuesday after Labor Day. I have time. I will probably need to take the first several days off because I am just too tired to do school!

    Found you on tag surfer… Yours classroom is lovely. What a great learning environment you have created!
