1st official/unofficial day of Kindergarten

We've been doing kindergarten work for awhile now, but today is our first day of using our kindergarten curriculum, Weaver Interlock, and our handwriting program, Handwriting Without Tears (that I'm borrowing, but definitely would love to own!).

Today was a fantastic day! I forgot to take a picture of our schedule board, so I'll have to post a picture of it later, but basically what I did was write down all of the activities for the day and every time we started an activity on the list, I wrote down the time we started and drew the hands on the clock next to the activity. You see, I detest scheduling, but this is a way to write down what I want to do with Monkey for the day and stick to it. Plus Monkey gets to see the time we do everything, he loves clocks!

Our weather calendar from That Resource Site

I've changed our calendar board, there are now pieces of velcro at the top right of each square for me to stick this frame around the current day.

Monkey knows his shapes, but these shape poems are fun

God's gift to us from the Weaver Interlock lesson today

We reviewed land masses, oceans, where we live, and when I asked what the globe represents, he answered "God made earth for us"

Daily drawing, today of a hippo
