For some of us school has already started or just starting or about to start.
Here in Minnesota the public schools don’t start until after Labor Day, I guess to prolong the amount of summer kids get.
We started school back in the beginning of August and it’s been quite interesting.
I have a new student, his name is Turbo (not really but for my blog his name is Turbo) he’s a kindergartener. This year I wanted to incorporate a bit of science into his weekly lessons. I do science with him every Tuesday and Thursday.
When I was preparing for his school stuff I was at a bit of a loss as to what I was going to teach him and how.
I think if it weren’t for the creation of that lovely site, I would probably laboring countless hours at the library researching things I can teach this little dude. Or spending quite a bit of time at my bestie’s (yes, I’m a 12-year-old girl who still has besties, and quite a handful of them to be exact) house harassing her on things I can teach him and how. Because around here, she’s known as the lady who knows all things. And it’s pretty much true.
I’m going to share with you some of the themes we will be working on this year and a couple of links of where I’ve found them.
If you need more inspiration, check out my Pinterest board under “Homeschooling-Preschool” I’ve pinned much more than I will be posting about. 🙂
Get ready, here come the themes!
- Plants and Flowers. We did this interactive notebook page so he can learn what plants and flowers need.
- Farming. We learned about everything that has to do with farming. 🙂
- Mammals. We haven’t done this one yet and I’m excited!
- Insects. I’m also excited about this one.
- Biomes– Grassland and forests
- Biomes–Rainforest, tundra, and desert
- Ocean/Sea life
- The body
- hibernation, migration and adaptation
- Reindeer-super duper excited about this one!
- health and nutrition
- force and motion
Most of these themes are free or they’re from TPT and they are pretty cheap. I think the biggest theme pack I found that I probably will use is $7.25 and I believe that’s the space and earth theme so, it’s kind of worth it I think, especially if I’m planning on doing this with Chunky Monkey when he gets to kindergarten.
I’m so excited to do these themes. As I stated before we’ve already started school and have done some of them that are listed but it’ll be fun when he starts learning about animals and how things work! EEP! I’ll try to remember to take pictures and post about the things he has learned so I can show how it went for us. 🙂
