Each Monday this year I will be posting my lesson guide for both children. It will be a complete guide with all the footwork done for you. This post will go up one week ahead so you can gather any supplies if you plan to follow along with us. I will include links to printables we are using, as well as links or written instructions for activities we will be doing.
My lesson guides will be planned for both my tot, and preschooler so you can follow along with the lesson plan that suits your needs best! If this happens to be your first year homeschooling I recommend you grab a library card. We use a lot of books for our unit studies, or if you have a kindle you can try kindle unlimited. Most importantly have fun this year!
Our theme is for this week is the beach! This theme for both Boober (my son, the preschooler) and Mokey (my daughter, the tot).
