Time for School

In January, we are going to begin some more formal schooling. Something more on the lines of a preschool style although still all very loose and unschooly. I decided to do this. One I need a plan or I flounder when Froggy comes looking for something to do. Froggy is clearly ready for more learning than we have been offering. Second Froggy is no longer reliably napping and we need something to do quiet in the house while the little girl I babysit for naps.

So here is our plan.

We are going to have a theme each week and do activities based on that theme. Our themes for January are Snow, Tu B'Shevat and Hands. We are also starting with a Nature Club which will meet once a month. I am still waffling on what do for Reading. We will probably use a combination approach mixing this and this and this.

I am setting up a learning corner in our playroom. I have been wanting a reading corner by the fireplace for some time now so we are moving some stuff around to get achieve all the goals. There will be a beanbag by the fireplace with a basket for books and on the wall next to it will be our learning poster and clipboard.
I made a monthly planning calendar which will go on our clipboard as well as our more detailed weekly plan and daily todo list - assuming I am ever that organized

It is such a nice plan. I wonder how it will survive the trenches.


  1. Hi. You've sent two posts to the same Carnival. Can you let me know which one you prefer me to post? If I haven't heard back soon, I'll just go with the first one, but you may need to resend the later one to the next carnival host later.

    I would have emailed you but the email address provided was invalid.
