I can't believe it September already!!! Where has the summer gone??? Now that it is September...we all know what this means.... BACK TO SCHOOL!!!
This next week will be the hardest for me because Princess B is starting JK...we decide to enrol her in school rather than me homeschooling her for a different perspective on the world. Here in Ontario, the provincial school system has introduced "play-based learning" and it means a lot less sitting down and more interaction and hands-on learning. I will still work with her at home for about 1-2 hours on her off days (she only goes 2 1/2 hours per day where she is 2 days on one week and 3 days on the following week alternatively). She has been begging me to teach her to read so we will be working on the word families and Dolce sight words. See my printable Word Family sort Mats...which I will be adding more next week, so you can learn along with us. I have been using the tutorial by The Snail's Trail on homemade word family game, made from paint chips (oh how I love paint chips...I have a secret addiction to them....no really I do!) We will also be using some stuff from the blog, The Moffat Girls who have a Ready2Read and other printables to help with learning.
I have been having bouts of insomnia as result of my anxiousness for Princess B going to school. One night all I could think of was someone trying to abduct her...which lead to a huge discussion about "Stranger Danger" and different scenarios.
How did you approach the issue of "Stranger Danger" with your kids???
It is an important issue but how did you explain it? We discussed different instances where someone might approach her when she is in a certain setting...not that she'll be out of my sight but at school it is different...1 teacher to 20 some kids....what if is I all I can say.
