Two weeks until we start back to school in our house. (Honestly, part of me is not ready!) I have the first week of assignments done, except I’m really struggling with what to have her read. We dropped a text book reading program this year in favor of books that will challenge her, but she will enjoy more. (Any suggestions, friends?)
I’m also working on menu planning the first few weeks of school. This summer I’ve had days where I have not had to use the crockpot every day- but that first week back on a school schedule- I think I’ll be using the crockpot. One less thing to think about!
I purchased what few supplied we need a couple of weeks ago. After you homeschool a few years, it seems new pencils, notebooks and erasers are about all you need.
I’ve also been using time watching her extracurricular activities to work on her handwriting notebook for the year. Since she usually does this without me around, I have numbered all the assignments so we do not have questions every day.
What are you doing to prepare for back to school?
