As you’ve probably guessed by now, today was the first day of our ninth year of homeschooling! This year, I’ll be teaching two eighth graders, one fourth grader, and a cute little pre-kindergartener!
As I traditionally do, I prepared the school room before I let the children see it. I handed out the schultüte and all of their new workbooks, placed some of the books we’ll be using this year around the room, and displayed the Lego set I purchased for this year:
I love our calendar…we’ve been using it since our very first day of school in 2008!
Of course I had to take lots of pictures of my students!
We didn’t do every subject, but we did get to work on the basics:
Turkey, Bunny, and Ladybug worked on building their new Lego Architecture set, a model of the Burj Khalifa:
Chickadee doesn’t have the fine motor skills (or patience!) for a Lego set like that, yet, but she did have fun working with the pattern blocks!
Here’s a look at this year’s arrangement of our school room:
And even though it’s not something I’ve done every year, I had Ryan take a picture of me with my students:
Today was a great start to what I hope will be a great year of school!
