We’ve decided it’s time to start preschool for Aurora and since we are homeschooling, it will be at home. We began with a test run day today, it went pretty well. I’m going to continue using preschool packs from www.homeschoolcreations.com and see how we go from there. Aurora really enjoyed the little bug packet I made for the “pretty bugs” theme we used today. We did a lot of painting. Three different painting projects. First I traced a butterfly onto brown paper and the girls stood at the counter colouring and painting with water colours. Later, during Bellatrix’s nap, Aurora and I did paint pressing and caterpiller names. Paint pressing is when you paint half the page and press it together to get a neat design. We turned ours into butterflies. Then with caterpillar Names we cut out circles and wrote all the letters of each girls name, the glued them onto a watercolour pInted background. We had fun! After painting we went through the activities in her Bug book that I hand drew and glued together. We even played the little board game I came up with in the middle, very simple. Overall it was a successful test day.
