Homeschooling is going rather well this fall. I took this picture about a month ago of our work boxes. It's funny to look at because everything looks so neat and clean...you should see it today! Using these boxes really has made it easy for Evan to understand "what's next" which is really important to him. And it helps me as well to stay organized. Evan actually only works out of the top 5 boxes. We are focusing on Phonics, Math, and Handwriting right now. We add Social Studies (world geography and cultures mostly) and science every now and then.
I can't say enough about Handwriting Without Tears! I love it! Evan loves it! and that makes us all very happy. We started this program over a year ago with the Pre-K book and we still play with MatMan :) Evan is now on the next level. Even Asher gets in on the fun with his learning the alphabet. Our fav thing...the play dough letters. I can still hear the song, "Where do you start your letters? at the top!" Once Asher knows his alphabet and can recognize some of the letters, I'm starting him on the pre-K book. I actually have the whole pre-k program but I mix and match what we are doing to go along with Evan too. It's just easier that way.
