School Time

For the past 3 weeks now, I have been doing "school time" with Lilly for about an hour a day.  I have gotten ideas from various websites and books and she seems to be really enjoying this time each day.  In this post, I will share with you some of the websites I use and our schedule.

Right now we are doing a letter a week, so everything we study in each of the subjects begins with the letter we are learning about.  For example, this week has been the letter C so we talked about courageous Queen Esther when we did our Bible story, compared groups of objects to decide which had more or less, counted objects, looked at the calendar, and created pictures.  Also, we read books about counting and cats.

Bible story and memory verses

Journal to Daddy when he is away - she tells me what to write and then she adds a picture to go with the words

Calendar - date, days of the week, months of year, weather, seasons

Monday - talk about letter of the week, sound it makes, what it looks like, what things begin with the letter, finding things that start with the letter, finding the letter in the house, etc 
Learn a nursery rhyme - we've been checking various books out with lots of nursery rhymes in them and so we try to learn one a week.  We have also been reading a fable or fairy tale a week.

Tuesday - math day, numbers, practice recognition of them, couting, one-to-one correspondance, patterns, adding, sorting, etc

Wednesday - Science day, experiements, observations, reading books on various topics

Thursday - S.S. day, reading books on various topics and library day

Friday - We usually have one day where we go out in the morning so we don't get to our school work - Friday is our day to "catch up"

Here are some sites I have been using:
For memory verses, I have been using this system from the Charlotte Mason site:
