We officially began homeschooling in the summer of 2006. Superman had just turned five years old, Giggly Girl was three, and Sweet Pea was one.
Since I didn't blog back then, I've decided to reminisce a bit and highlight some of the things we did in that first year of our homeschool journey, which we called Pre-K.
I will probably also use "Time Capsule Tuesday" to write about things we've done since that time, which I've not had a chance to post about - imagine that!
As I was flipping back through our old photos, I thought I'd share some springtime fun we had with a mini-unit on rabbits in one of the weeks leading up to Easter 2007.
We read all of the "bunny" books included in the Before Five in a Row Curriculum:
The ABC Bunny by Wanda Gag
The Little Rabbit by Judy Dunn
The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown
We also read several Beatrix Potter stories featuring her famous rabbit characters:
The Tale of Peter Rabbit
The Tale of Benjamin Bunny
The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies
Every one of these are such sweet stories. I think I'll pull them out again for my little ones tomorrow. :)
Some of our activities:
We learned about different kinds of rabbits, their habitat, what they eat, the difference between a rabbit and a hare, and that rabbits are mammals.
We also used I Can Draw Animals (Usborne Playtime Series)to learn how to draw a rabbit.
This was a memorable unit for me and my sweet preschoolers.
Next week I'll share about our Holy Week activities from that same year.
Thanks for joining me on this little stroll down memory lane - hope you enjoyed it!
