Homeschool Adventures

This year I have the privilege of staying home with my lovely trio and homeschool... After a little bit of a rough start, on the start of the third week we are getting the hang of a routine! I love homeschooling my babies because of the simple fact of being in the walls of your own home.

You can have your baby brother near you playing with blocks: 

Your little sister in her "princess hair" (seriously, I can't get her to take it off at home. It's her princess hair. Don't you dare touch it!) :

You can take as long as you want to get through calendar (within reason of course. If Big B want's to go on a tangent about how the moon sleeps at night when it's sunny out-by all means, we can create an entire story about the moon and the sun) :

We can have our own placemats to work on: 

We can learn our Haida (Hi Duh) language and embrace our culture with our Aunt: 

We can play with Wonder Man Weather Puppet ("Mom, he's Wonder Man because he wonders what the weather is until I tell him!" -Big B)

And best of all...Free time can be spent by playing barbies. Every time. 

We will be using the ABC Jesus Loves Me curriculum that focus' on Christian principals while learning academic standards. Even if your not homeschooling and you want to teach Christian values, use this! You can suppliment activities or just do the stories each week!  Here is an excerpt from their site: 

"ABC Jesus Loves Me is a comprehensive, research-based preschool curriculum for ages 2-5 that focuses on academics, development, and the Bible. The four 36-week curricula incorporate learning into the toddler's and preschooler's day instead of controlling it, allowing the child to explore, play, and learn new things.  Our website includes thousands of lesson plans, printables, and supportive ideas to guide the child's learning and help the adult be intentional throughout the day.  The entire site is free for family use while Licenses may be purchased for preschool, church, and business use.  Lesson plans and workbooks are available to order in book form."

We will also be incorporating the curriculum from Confessions of a Homeschooler and her Letter of The Week Curriculum which is very cheap in her store ($15) for the amount of amazing printables and activities you get. Yes, she is very generous! You even get the entire lesson plans for the whole thing! It's amazing and the girls love it! 

With just these two curriculums we will be super busy. They both have worksheets that are to be used, but more than that, they both have compiled many art and hands on activities! 

Do you homeschool? Are you using a curriculum? Please share, I would love to hear from you!
