For Love of Education: tales from a secular homeschooling family

Kindergarten in Review

Rate this Entry
So we are finishing up on Kindergarten and itís been a very full year! Below you will find mini reviews about the resources that we used this year. What would I have done differently?

  1. Not over plan. I went crazy thinking that I would not have enough materials to cover the whole year, but my worry-wort tendencies just caused me to become overwhelmed thinking about what we had to complete. I am so over that now!
  2. Check things sooner rather than later if they are not working. The thought of spending money on something that I donít use makes me sad so I pushed The Tornado through HWT and a few other things despite the fact that they were not working for us. Not this year!
  3. Do more field trips! We went places put not as many as I wanted us to. I want to do more GEOCACHING and hiking.
  4. Add a music program.
  5. Notebooking instead of Lapbooking.

    We just started kindergarten in our house and it's nice to hear what others liked, didn't like, would do different, would not do different. Thank you for sharing.
