I have most of the homeschool stuff that we’re not actively using stored away in a couple of big dresser drawers, which works out well enough. I keep it fairly organized by type of supply and age level. But you know, things still get mixed up in there from time to time and I go through and tidy it up. Well, I was doing just that this past weekend and realized we had a set of Bob Books for pre-readers that I had completely forgotten about. Finding that gave me feelings akin to stumbling upon a long-lost 10 dollar bill in the pocket of some jeans you haven’t worn in a year. More proof that I most definitely live for the little things.
I put the set of books up with the rest of our current homeschool supplies thinking we’d get to them after we get back from vacation, but Wyatt spotted them and was super interested so we dived right in. I don’t know what the other sets are like, but the pre-readers are very basic (not a bad thing) and Wyatt loved them. I think the rest of the sets might be in our future.
After some lunch we finally got around to using the A-Z handwriting worksheets I printed and laminated last week.
He enjoyed them at first but a few letters in I think the repetition got old and I could tell he was just done. Not a big deal. He did really great on the first few and we’ll definitely use these again to work on handwriting skills. He was actually so proud of his A’s we had to take a picture.
The rest of the day was pretty relaxed. He asked to read another chapter from the illustrated Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone book, so I obviously stopped everything so we could do that. Because, you know, Harry Potter.
Then later in the evening we did a page out of the Mead Preschool Workbook but he wasn’t super into it, so we ended up pushing that to side and playing with Scooby-Do toys instead. I was tasked with playing the role of Daphne, and I think I did a fine job. I convinced Fred to let me drive the Mystery Machine, then accidentally drove it over a cliff (so much for dispelling that women-can’t-drive stereotype). We were attacked by the Lake Monster and I was nearly eaten by a T-rex, but managed to survive.
We finished off the night with a game of Jumanji, then it was time for bed. But not before we took a picture of our one-eyed homeschool mascot, Dewey.
I hope you enjoyed another glimpse into our homeschool life. I’d love to know how your day went too!
P.S. I’d love for you to checkout my homeschool kindergarten board on Pinterest, as well as our Amazon Homeschool Favorites where I have curated a list of things we genuinely use and love in our homeschool life.
