It crept up on me unexpectedly: my little girl is ready to start formal schooling!
Now, Sophia only turned three in July, and I normally would not advocate schooling so young, but this little soul is ready for some scholarship. She is brimming over with questionst that she wants answers to, and she absolutely thrives on the sort of routine and focused tasks that formal schooling centers on.
I will be homeschooling Sophia for four days a week (with Fridays being our Field Trip day) for 26 weeks--one week for each letter of the Alphabet. Rather than use a purchased curriculum, I am writing my own. I hope to share it with you next year when it is not only completed but tested! I will be sharing photos and projects throughout the year here at The Apple Cider Mill under the new Homeschooling label, so stay tuned. (And maybe say a little prayer for me!)
The whole family is so excited to begin school this September 6th! In the meantime, please forgive me if my posts are a bit sporadic, but this curriculum building is currently taking up a lot of my time. ;-)
For those of you in the same boat as me, just beginning the homeschooling journey, here are some general resources I have found both helpful and inspirational so far:
