Here is Sam playing with a fun activity on the schoolroom floor. For the first hour of our school time, Sam plays upstairs with different siblings. Then I let him come to the schoolroom either to sit in my lap or play with the activities of the day. This day he was playing with plastic buttons.
Olivia does all of her schoolwork independently. She is doing quite well in 8th grade Apologia Physical Science. This is her first year to use a textbook for science (or any subject), and I am so pleased with how she has adapted.
Julie does all of her schoolwork independently too. She has a different science curriculum than Olivia, but she is doing it all alone too. She is also using Teaching Textbooks Math for the first time, and she seems to enjoy it more than the Horizons we used in the past. I still plan to use Horizons math through the 5th grade for the younger children.
Here is Leah playing with the "arranging the flowers" activity. I rotate about 50 activities for Leah and Sam to do each day. I usually put out 3-4 different activities each day. Leah is loving preschool! We are counting the school days to 100. Every day she asks if it is the 100th day. I told her we would have a big celebration on the 100th day, and she is really looking forward to it.
