Day One

20110627-102130.jpg

Ernie opened her first grade curriculum last night- Calvert sure knows how to get kids excited! The box had manuals, workbooks, reading books, an inflatable globe, pencils…everything! Ernie declared that we’d start school in the morning, so that’s just what we did. It took a little over an hour, and she loved it. LOVED.

I’ll be modifying the curriculum a bit, to match her level- she reads the scriptures fluently, so the “Tam Cat sat on mat” stories are a bit simplistic. She was supposed to read to me about Tam Cat, but instead I read it to her and had her spell it out in the chalk board.

I’m excited to get a jump on the school year, and give ourselves a buffer for play days during the year- there are enough lessons for 9 solid months.

  1. Excellent.

  2. Fun! I love opening new boxes of curriculum, all those crisp books, and that new book smell. My son was like this – liked to get a jump on it in the earlier grades. It’s a lot of fun for mom when the student is excited about it – makes my heart sing.
