When I left the public school system a few years ago, I didn't think I would really use my teaching degree again (past homeschooling our two school age kids). I've worked in public schools, a preschool when Oldest was little, a private University Model school, and homeschooling. This last May, I ended a three year term as a private teacher for a family whose child has ADD and Aspergers. So what am I going to do when I grow up???
This week, it hit me... I've got these sweet little girls God has put in my life! So this week we started doing some fun learning activities and they seem to love it!
Each morning, after breakfast and watching an episode of Super Why, we're head to the living room for a little "Circle Time"
|"Ashy, Ashy, Fall Down!"|
- Singing songs
- reading books
- talking and asking questions
- Bible Story
- talking about direction and placement
(I use an old Beanie Baby Frog that "leaps and crawls" under, over, on top, below, in, out, etc. of places)
Our Direction Frog
|Mice show how to mix primary colors|
|Miss I mixing colors|
We had to find out how those pesky mice mixed their colors by doing it ourselves and boy did we have fun!
|Miss AB Mixing colors|
|A Trio of Lunch time fun|
Surprisingly, there was not a huge mess, especially with Miss AB. I later found out this was her first time doing finger painting.
I'm very thankful for the great parents who allow me the opportunity to watch their girls and to get to know them better. Each day is different, but we learn something new each day. I have really enjoyed getting to know the moms more each day and look forward to their brief visits at the end of the day.
