I have $500 allotted for my son's upcoming kindergarten year. I already have $400 spent on the following:
LOE Foundations A (phonics and handwriting)
Little Pim Italian
FIAR volume 2 and associated literature
Seton's Pre-K religion
Faith and Freedom Readers grade 1
... I already have on hand math (Miquon and CLE), Rod and Staff's GHI series, Making Music Praying Twice, and misc religion resources. I want something FUN. We do not do formal history or science at this age (FIAR will tie in plenty of that).
So... what are some fun educational things that I can buy? Either for Kinder Boy or for his Toddler Monster brother (to keep Toddler Monster occupied). They already have the mother load of archiquest blocks, jenga blocks, legos, etc.
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
