Homeschooling My Kindergartner

I can’t believe it’s already been two months since we started homeschooling! Time is going by so fast! I’ll probably say this again and again all year! Anyway, I wanted to update you guys on how homeschooling has been.

As you know, I used to teach first grade for 14 years but that doesn’t mean homeschooling my own child is easy. It’s actually a little difficult because I had to “unlearn” the traditional views of school and figure out what works for my child and family. This is something I’ll continue to learn as we go along. We are still trying to get in a “groove.” View Post

Ever since we went to the dentist a few months ago, A has been so excited and eager for her first loose tooth! She got her first set of x-rays and you could see her permanent teeth growing in under her gum line. When she saw that picture, it made her even more excited and she has been asking every week when her teeth will start to wiggle. View Post


Back-to-School With The Millennial Mamas

Last week A and I had the honor of attending an amazing back-to-school event with our friends The Millennial Mamas at the beautiful Westlake Village Inn. We were treated to an afternoon of pampering and gifting to get us ready for the new school year with so many amazing brands and products!

Why I Became a PTA Dropout: My Decision to Homeschool

When I used teach first grade, I remember how our school had an amazing PTA! They supported the teachers and their classrooms by volunteering, planning parties and fundraisers for the school and were so involved. I dreamed of doing the same for my own child’s class when he or she would be school aged. BUT that was before I actually had kids.

I’m not knocking public education or PTAs at all! I know some amazing teachers and schools who go above and beyond for their students. I know teachers who are so passionate and have made a huge difference in the lives of their students. BUT I decided to become a PTA dropout! View Post


Our Favorite Homeschooling Activities for Preschool

Before sending A to her 2-day a week preschool class, I did some homeschooling activities with her. I wanted to share with you some of our favorite homeschooling resources I used. I’ll try to include pictures (mostly iPhone pictures) plus a link to where I got them. Most of them are free!

Dot-to-Dot Alphabet:

I found these worksheets from Confessions of a Homeschooler. She has TONS of free printables as well as curriculum for homeschoolers. A wealth of resources!! We used these dot-to-dot alphabet sheets with dot markers when A was younger. We also used the dot markers for other worksheets and projects. So much fun!!!homeschool preschool, homeschooling resources, teaching abc
