Kindergarten with Ace and Christi, Week 27: Braydon Michael

Week 27: January 15 – 18

This week we learned the letter sound “A”, missing things, more or less, sets, mazes, bankers, the President, and lawyers, the Bible stories “Everyone Was Asleep” (John 3:1-21) and “The New King” (1 Samuel 16:1-13)

Homeschooling is closeness to your favorite people everyday. 🌟 It’s worksheets on the floor so we can sit right inside the warm spot, where the mid-morning sun is creeping in through the window. It’s about going through the day slowly, drinking in every new kindergarten idea and thought. It’s picking through the brains of the children around you with questions and conversations. It’s reading that one book, you know, the one that they love, for the trillionth time. It’s letting them fold laundry and make dinner with you (even when it’s LESS than helpful — someday that will change). It’s knowing the ins and outs of everything they’re learning so you end up drill them while riding in the car or around the dinner table. It’s finding what they love, what they’re passionate about, and exploring it (White tigers? Black holes? Mailmen?) At this age, it’s probably a phase, but you’re diving into subjects that genuinely interest them which is showing them that learning is FUN and INTERESTING! It’s creating a positive foundation for “school” because learning never ends! We should all strive to be students of LIFE everyday. I feel honored and incredibly humbled and sober with the responsibility of Braydon’s schooling. He is doing so great and will be a 1st grader before I know it!!!

Kindergarten with Ace and Christi, Week 23: Braydon Michael

Week 23: December 7, December 12, December 16

This week we learned the letter sound “Q”, beginning rhymes, dental hygiene, tracing, sets and matching sets, review hot and cold, the Bible stories “Obey and Look” (Numbers 21:5-9, John 14-16) and “Big Enough” (Luke 19:1-10)

As I stated in my last post, we did a double day of school on the floor in the school room for a change of pace. Braydon really liked it and so did I!

Happy Homeschooling and Merry Christmas!

Kindergarten with Ace and Christi, Week 22: Braydon Michael

Week 22: December 1, December 4 – 5, December 7

On week 22 we learned the letter sound “V”, inside and outside, counting by 10’s, all about policemen and firemen, tracing, beginning bat/hat/cat rhymes, hygiene, and the Bible stories “The Seed Family” (Matthew 13:3-8) and “When Jesus Made a Servant Boy Well (Luke 7:1-10).

^ I told him to “cheese”, LOL.

We needed a change of scenery and a change of pace so we did a double day of school on the floor in the school room as opposed to the kitchen table. This was really helpful for Braydon’s wiggles.

Happy Homeschooling!!!

Kindergarten with Ace and Christi, Week 21: Braydon Michael

Week 21: November 27 – 30

This week we learned the letter sound “U”, patterns with shapes and colors, things that don’t belong, science of the human heart, and the Bible stories “The Daughter Who Lived Again” (Luke 8:41 – 56) and “The Man Who Could Not Move” (John 5:1 – 15).

We did a double day on Thursday per Braydon’s request. Can’t stop this kid!

Happy Homeschooling!!!
