And We're Off!!!

If you're reading this, it means you've followed me over here, to my homeschooling blog.  Welcome!

Sophie and I launched her homeschool year today.  As all the other kidlets started public school, I just thought it was appropriate.  Sophie's still only four, so with that short attention span in mind, I've decided to start off with about 1 1/2 hours of school each morning, and see where we go from there.  Here's what I'm planning on covering over the next month:

Count to 100 by 1's.
Count to 100 by 10's.
Build a solid grasp of 10's and 1's place value.

Work on phonemic awareness (the ability to segment and blend words).
Introduce some basic digraphs.
Read for fluency.

Write letters to various people in order to reinforce sentence structure, forming lowercase letters, and fine motor skills.

Social Studies / Science:

Thanks for stopping by.  I promise I'll post again soon with pics and more about what we're doing, and how it's working for us.  Wish us luck!
