Embracing a Healthy Family: First Year Homeschooling: Our Getting Back to School Apple Board

First Year Homeschooling: Our Getting Back to School Apple Board


This is my first year at home schooling and if I say that I'm scared, I'm SCARED!  I'm so afraid I will let my girls down with not being able to teach them what they need to know.  I also want to make it fun and not just a mundane day of reading, arithmetic and writing.  I started with the Robinson Curriculum but then added the Read to Write and Spell (hopefully I wrote that correctly).  It's a tough program to learn as it's phonetic based and has special rules.  I'm taking advantage of the YouTube videos for it after I realized today to look there!




So last week, we made an apple board to celebrate fall and the girls loved it.  They used a basket to collect their apples which included a picture of themselves that they had to glue and then they had to write come facts about themselves.  After that, they assembled the board and included some clouds.  It was a quick and easy project to get them in the school mentality.
