I'm Back!
Day 1 ~ and we're off!

~*Kinder Themes for Autumn*~


I have only a few precious moments to spend online this morning - first day back and all! - but I wanted to quickly share with you my outline for Earlybird's Kindergarten this year. I'm sure you're not surprised to hear that when I plan a curriculum for my children, I like to work around themes, and that those themes mostly tie in with the seasons. As we move through the year, I will be posting our weekly activities and books etc. here at my blog.

And so, this is our first week of Kindergarten, and we are focusing on Bugs and the letter B. (Yes, I'm starting with B, rather than A; just call me a rebel.) I will post later - today, maybe tomorrow - more details about our Bug week. :)

~*Kinder Themes for Autumn*~

9/1 Bugs (late summer buzzes)

12/22 Christmas (family and faith)

12/29 All Year Round (bells, how time passes)

And now I'd best be off ... it's just shy of 6:00 here, and still quite dark. My older boys are still sleeping, but they'll be up and running before I know it. Time to put the math out on the worktable and pour myself another cup of coffee. :)

So, have a great day, and wherever you do your learning, I wish you a very happy new (academic) year!
