"B" is for Big, Brown Beaver

Best Blogger Tips
Sophie and Isaac were not happy to learn that Eli would be gone all day at school, and they would not.  "That's not fair!" said Sophie.  I need to document this for future years.  I told them I'd do home "school" with them so they would have some activities.  A friend recommended a site with some linked material, and I've been searching around looking for worksheets and crafts.  Right now, we are going through each letter, day by day, and practicing writing it, making it's sound, and doing some kind of activity that matches.  Yesterday was the letter "B."  The kids did a beaver craft they were really proud of.

Even though Eli had his first art class at school, he came home and told me it wasn't fair that the littles got to make a beaver craft and he wanted to do it too!  Good grief.  So far, home "school" seems to be going well.  I need to think of more ideas.  Today is "C," so we're making cookies!  I love when forces outside of my control compel me to make and eat cookies.  hehe  


  1. Shoot me an email! We have been doing homeschool preschool for years now, LOL. Loads of fun and I'm able to prepare them for "real" school and still tailor everything to what they want to do. Check my pinterest too...I think I have a board with lots of fun crafts that I tailor to Sammy.

  2. Oh great, thanks Meg! This letter a day business is sort of a stop gap so I can get myself together. They really are enjoying it, but they both know their letters already. When we get past this easy part I foresee a lot more work.
