Today was our first day of school! We are using lessonpathways.com.
Most of our work today was watching videos and playing games. I had my son do a worksheet from his Envision Math book and his English workbook.
We also set up our mealworms homes today. They are learning about animal life cycles. That was super fun!
We picked one of the mealworms as our official 'class pet' and the kids named him Squirmy.
School is not like I thought it would be. This is our first full year of homeschooling. I expected them to sit quietly while I taught them. It was soooo not that way! DD (3)(4 in two days) mostly climbed on my desk and played with her brother (7) who is not being homeschooled. DS (9) did his work, played his games, and took quite a few tv breaks. I don't want a lot of book work. And I want school to be fun. I want more games and hands-on activities.
When DS gets finished for the day, I plan on starting DD with the tiny bit of work she has.
I'm exhausted already! Between helping DS, doing laundry, dishes, and other random housework. My phone won't stop riniging.
Please tell me this gets easier!!
