The start of a homeschooling journey...
Ok... I can't wait to start the Sonlight homeschooling program and also I felt that Reese is ready!! So yesterday I decided to start with two books. Harper Collins Treasury Picture Book Classics and Eloise Wilkin's Stories. I went through both the books briefly and I fell in love with them instantly especially Eloise Wilkin's Stories. These books have superb illustration and the best of all, the stories talk about everyday things that a child can relate to. The pictures are big and therefore appealing.
Harper Collins Treasury Picture Book Classic includes some the great classic like Goodnight Moon, If you give a mouse a cookie and many more...
For Reese's homeschooling program (Core 3/4), it does not have a fix schedule. According to the parent guide book, just read to the child whenever you and the child feel like it. For this core, it is divided into 3 trimester only. For the first trimester, it has a list of stories to be read aloud to the child and accompanying activities.
So far it looks flexible enough and all I need to do is play with Reese, read to and with him, do some arts and crafts, sing and do actions with him and whatever I can think of! I really hope I can be successful in homeschooling him....got to pray very hard.... hehehe....
