What are your favourite fall sews?

BFIAR: Jessie Bear, What will you wear?

and so we row .... 

Our first "row" with Before Five in a Row will be Jesse Bear, What will you wear?

The start of my planning. Lots of printables printed. the 3prong booklets to fill

completed planning:

I'm planning for 2 kids. my kindy (top book) and my 3yr old (bottom book)

Day 1:

This is the start of their books :

The oldest will breeze through the colouring sheets so she also has a math sheet - Teachers pay Teachers by the moffat girls. Worth the few bucks to me :) 

Day 2:

I don't remember where exactly I found this leaf printable - but there are plenty of options out there

Day 3: 

we are focusing on foods. (first is from the lapbook linked at start of post)

and what insects eat since insects have been in focus this week (ish)

Day 4

Water cycle and weather. Cutting practice for the 3yr old and another math sheet that I linked above from the teachers pay teachers site 

Day 5:

Some matching of letters for the youngest (in the lapbook printable) and a reading response booklet for the oldest. Here is a great reading response freebie 

The paper bear doll is from HERE 

All through the week we will go through the B book. The oldest gets to do the beginning middle end sounds with it and then a few other fun printables from the LAPBOOK printable linked at the top of the post.

If we have time/good day:

and of course make some bear pancakes :) 

Honestly I expect this to take closer to 2 weeks. I'm not in a rush.... 

The goal is to have them love learning and know how to find information on their own, hence why I picked a literature based curriculum. It doesn't matter what they can check off the list to me. If they hate learning and don't know how to find knowledge and information then no matter how many checkmarks their resume has it is all useless. I want them to be able to transfer knowledge from one subject to the next, love reading, enjoy learning, love the challenge of a new project and feel the joy of completing it, and be creative.  Welcome to our homeschool!


Sunday Lately

Sunday lately. week 37 (or 1 if you are me) 

Every week wild & wonderful has a sunday lately and some prompts. to follow. I thought I'd try joining in to help focus.
 Doing, Appreciating, Designing, Humming, Expecting

Doing: I made bread this morning. Finally got grass seed down on the yard this weekend too - wahoo!  Prepping to homeschool! eek!!! But you read that right. We only have one school option , and if that's not liked tough cookies. So we have decided to homeschool! I'm scared but excited. At least they start in kindergarten so it isn't like I'm jumping into algebra! ... haha

appreciating: Family! Love going to family breakfasts! Everyone who can in my dad's family comes out on a Saturday morning and we talk and laugh, people have actually moved to the side room at the restaurant because we get so loud and chatty and the laughs are booming! It is just great to see the kids spending time getting to know all the generations! cousins their ages, second cousins old great great uncle john, their great grandma (my grandma) and all the great aunts and uncles!

Designing: more free motion appliques! and working with THEE Becca DuVal on some new ones too! It's so fun and I've been up to midnight pretty much every night working, but it feels good!

Humming: This one is hard for me... as everyone who knows me knows - I am the WORST for getting songs in my head. I don;t remember beats or lyrics. it is weird I know.

Expecting: no-one!!!! YAY! lol. But in all seriousness... I'm expecting to work my ass OFF this year. I am working sooo hard to learn stuff, do designs, and I'm excited to see where it takes me! 

See ya next week (if I remember!)


Sunday Lately with KatyNicole and Meghan
