Starting School

We got a little bit of a start on school the dentist's office. :-) We did a little reading lesson review and art appreciation in the waiting room while Matt was having some work done.

And tomorrow is our first day of co-op! Autumn is really excited about "going to school", but bummed that she doesn't get to ride on a school bus.

I've always been a big believer in not starting school this early, but Autumn is obviously ready. She asks for reading lessons frequently and is always asking me how to spell things and write letters, so it seems that we're starting school.

So far, this is what I'm planning on doing this year...

Unit Studies - "Teach Me Mommy" (nature, rhymes, songs, activities, read-aloud time, etc.)
Reading/Writing - "Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons" (part of this will be review)
Art Appreciation - the "Come Look With Me" series
Bible - probably will just be doing "The Bible Story" series a little every day
Math - "Math Play" and some basic workbooks/activity sheets to help recognize and write numbers

Homeschool Co-op once a week (Playtime, Science, Storytime, Arts and Crafts)
Storytime/Computer at the library once a week
