First Week of School

I love reading about other homeschoolers weeks but I am terrible about taking pictures and posting them.  I am going to work on doing a better job with that this year!! So without further ado our first week of school!

Sammy picked blueberry pancakes and smoothies for his back to school breakfast.  He loved his special breakfast:


Sammy showing off the first day of school:


Sammy didn’t miss a stride with his handwriting over the summer.  Sammy loves to write little notes so that certainly helped keep his handwriting fresh.  He talked the first practice page from A Reason for Handwriting:


Sammy got pretty goofy (class clown) while working on the first day.  He brought over a few pillows to make his chair more comfortable!


He doesn’t look thrilled in this picture but he had fun working on his All About Reading level 2 lesson:


We celebrated the completion of day 1 with lunch at Chick-fil-a with nuggets and cheesy smiles!

Day 5 – Sammy working on his science project!  A car we will use for our force lab.  I found this amazing product at convention and it has been the biggest hit!
