We are getting ready to start first grade. J is excited, but not nearly as excited as I am.
But first, a brief introduction.
J is almost 6 and beginning first grade, using WinterPromise's "Hideaway in History" curriculum. We're using a number of other things for math, art, etc, but Hideaways is the core curriculum and should prove the most interesting to blog about!
(notice one missing? neither did I until I went back to the kitchen and found Science Fun sitting on the counter! so pretend it's there)
My hopes are to have HER write (or at least narrate) about what she's learned for the week, and then I'll post pictures I've taken of their hideaways and possibly construction pictures as well, if they prove photo-worthy.
I have two other children; B proudly announces she's in Pre-K, though in reality she'll be following along with J. She does her own reading lessons (we've finished "Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons" and have moved on to Pathway Readers) but will probably do the rest of the stuff that her sister does.
H is 2 and will not be formally learning, but I'm sure you'll be seeing pictures of him from time to time, as he's pretty cute ;)
So to prepare, I pulled out all the books we'll start the first week. They now all have little "flag" tabs, color-coordinated for which day of the week we'll turn to that page.
Countdown: 13 days until first grade starts!!
