Home Preschool Updates

I've fallen a bit behind on my posting, but we have finished letter H and then took a week to review the letters A - H. Things are starting to click for Keanan and he is identifying some words that start with these familiar letters when he hears them. He is also pointing out some of these letters as he sees them.

This week we are taking a break from letters and doing a unit study from the homeschooling curriculum Five in a Row. We are reading the children's book "Grandfather's Journey" and doing activities to learn about Japan, our family tree, counting weeks, Japanese culture, shadows, birds, origami, accepting different races, and learning about different landforms. It is really fun!

After a week or so of doing our school time while Kyla is napping, I realized that Keanan still really needs a 2 hour nap. So we are back to school in the mornings with Kyla, but only about 3 times a week. This week we are starting Bible Study Fellowship on Wednesdays (the kids both have their own class), library visits on most Thursdays, and our preschool class at Hands On Childrens Meuseum on Fridays. With house cleaning on Mondays and visiting Grandma's house on most Tuesdays - we are busy!
