We are starting our first day of school on Monday after taking the month of June off. DD will be starting 2nd grade, and DS Kindergarten. Last year was my first year homeschooling, and I regret not taking a day to just do some fun things to start our year. I didn't even think about it until we were well into the first few weeks of school.
Since we did not complete Module 1 we will pick up where we left off - hieroglyphics. I am going to let the kids write their names in hieroglyphics using a template a friend loaned me. Maybe even do a stain glassed coloring page to put in the window that goes along with Ancient Egypt. I thought I'd fix a nice breakfast that they love as well. Any other fun ideas? Maybe a math game? Write in shaving cream on the kitchen window.
It would be cool to make something crafty to keep. My friend (same one who loaned me the Egyptian things mentioned above) has her girls make a stepping stone each year. That is not something I would want to collect multiples of each year, but I like the concept.
