We have now completed our very first week of homeschool! It has been wonderful too!! The kids were excited every day to see what we would learn and so was I!!
This is the girls working on their English or Language Arts, or ILA, or whatever you want to call it. Each one of their books was selected based on their own unique interests. I guess I knew that I had done that but I didn't realize how awesome and exciting it was going to be when the girls started getting into them.
For example, Oreo Cookie has been on the newspaper crew at her school for a couple of years now... she LOVED it! The curriculum I purchased for her is Wordsmith Apprentice and in it she is a newspaper reporter writing for the paper! PERFECT! Chocolate Chip really loved going to public school and I think she was excited to find that in homeschool she gets to do the same type of worksheets that she loved doing there. Butterscotch Chip is truly a model student for her new classmates! She is working in her new Jump In by Apologia book and she loves it because it is asking her for HER interests and HER opinions and she is using her own imagination to help her write better! Over the past month or so, she has been writing some pretty awesome stories - all self-directed and on her own. In fact, she has written a book. She wants to look into publishing it, so, you will be hearing lots more about that!
