Last week A and I had the honor of attending an amazing back-to-school event with our friends The Millennial Mamas at the beautiful Westlake Village Inn. We were treated to an afternoon of pampering and gifting to get us ready for the new school year with so many amazing brands and products!
When I used teach first grade, I remember how our school had an amazing PTA! They supported the teachers and their classrooms by volunteering, planning parties and fundraisers for the school and were so involved. I dreamed of doing the same for my own child’s class when he or she would be school aged. BUT that was before I actually had kids.
I’m not knocking public education or PTAs at all! I know some amazing teachers and schools who go above and beyond for their students. I know teachers who are so passionate and have made a huge difference in the lives of their students. BUT I decided to become a PTA dropout!
Before sending A to her 2-day a week preschool class, I did some homeschooling activities with her. I wanted to share with you some of our favorite homeschooling resources I used. I’ll try to include pictures (mostly iPhone pictures) plus a link to where I got them. Most of them are free! Homeschooling is easy if you have the right tools with you. My friend told me to check out Writey Boards and they look pretty good – definitely something that would go well in our house.
I found these worksheets from Confessions of a Homeschooler. She has TONS of free printables as well as curriculum for homeschoolers. A wealth of resources!! We used these dot-to-dot alphabet sheets with dot markers when A was younger. We also used the dot markers for other worksheets and projects. So much fun!!!
