Tuesday, September 7, 2010 ~ 1st Day of School!!! Only 169 days to go...LOL...
This is my favorite part of school, the first few weeks are full of excitement and expectation. School is so much more fun now than when spring comes around. This year I'm teaching 4th gr., 2nd gr., 1st gr., and K, no highschooler this year (1st time in 7 yrs. *sigh*). My youngest is deaf (she has bilateral Cochlear Implants), so it's a challenge getting the right type of curriculumns for her, mostly I make up my own worksheets for her. She is so smart, she knows her sounds of the alphabet already. I was so surprised when I heard her doing them the other day, she taught them to herself using starfall.com, this is a great resource, I highly recommend this webpage for phonics.
For all my fellow homeschoolers, my prayer is that you have a GREAT year this year, and that your homeschool sees the many blessings of God!
