I'm so excited to share this idea with you because it's been a beautiful part of my relationship with my daughter and a pinnacle part of our homeschool. We write letters back and forth to each other in the format of a journal. This authentic and meaningful writing practice is as emotional as it is educational. We both LOVE it!
We learned right away when we started homeschooling for preschool that we needed a schedule that was flexible. Academics are important to us but they also need to fit well into our day to day family life. This check list has been the best of both worlds and adds responsibility for the kids, too!
We've already written about how we don't do letter of the week with our kids. A common question we hear often is then how do we teach the letters of the alphabet? How do our kids practice both letter identification and letter sound relationships in a playful way? We're sharing our favorite ways to play as we learn letters!
Sometimes our cooking with kids ideas are so simple I almost feel guilty calling them recipes. This one is more of an concept since each family member personalizes their own pasta salad at our make your own pasta salad toppings bar! A bit of prep and dinner is ridiculously simple. Kids love mixing their own choices in so this was a huge hit with our whole family!
