I have to say last year was quite successful for homeschooling kindergarten and Sophia is a bit ahead, beginning 1st grade work. We went ahead and got approved for another year of homeschooling and I must say I enjoy it. Some days are less than enjoyable, like anything else, but I love the convenience of having our own schedule, learning how we want, and knowing where my daughter stands.
Anyone else homeschooling? I'd love to hear your thoughts an input on the curriculum and activities you do. Even photos of your school space would be great! Also, if you're local I'd love to meet up and get together sometime as well!
So here's our list of materials we have so far for this year; of course we probably won't do the whole book of every book, but they're the materials we'll be using for the year!
