Today was our first day back to school after the holidays. It was mostly a day of getting back into the swing of things and trying to remember our old routine. A the end of November, we played around a little with doing calendar notebooks as seen at RRSP. They all seemed to enjoy it, but in December, we let it fall off because for one, we didn't do school for the whole month, and for two, we did for crafty stuff than real school. After talking to the kids, we decided to start them again with the new year. We will see how long they want to keep it up. They have some pages that they all do and some pages that are different. Scout's pages are all in cursive. If nothing else, it is good daily number practice for the preschoolers, and Scout and Jem will always know what the date is and won't have to ask me!
We decided to keep on doing letter C this week since it got short coverage during December. I have found some things on Chameleons, Cactus, Castles, and Cars, so it may take us one or two weeks to finish.
Everyone seemed ready to get back to school. We did a full day. The big kids were ready to be done by the end of the day :) but I think they were getting bored, and were glad to get back to learning.
Even though I enjoyed my time off, it was good to see everyone back to their routines, and also to see that they hadn't forgotten everything over the past few weeks! :) Now let's see what tomorrow brings!
