Teaching Tuesday - Summer "School" Style
This was our first official week of our Summer "School" plan and it pretty well. We did some seat work a few days and then a project. Not to mention PE (also known as T-Ball). I even have a fantastic bruise where I took a bat to the arm while helping the boys work on their batting skills. (Good thing we were just using a cheap plastic bat or I might actually be in a cast HA)
One of my main goals with our summer school concept is to review items like sight words, phonics, and math. I went through and searched out various packets of Kindergarten review worksheets and put together packets for each week. Confessions of a Homeschooler has some great sight word worksheets and then I found a couple of complete packs of review info at Teachers Pay Teachers. At first I tried to find all free worksheets but, honestly, paying about $8.50 for a complete pack of worksheets that takes us through the summer was well worth the time I saved. The nice thing is that as we continue through the summer the boys will know what to do on each worksheet and won't need much direction.
Nate wanted to make a daisy - he did a great job. This flower idea came from Mess for Less. It was a perfect craft for my boys because it was simple and quick.
