*Note: I posted this originally on our family blog, but have decided to add the home-schooling aspect of our lives to "Lasso the Moon" since it is taking up more and more of my creative energy. I also hope it will serve as a source for teaching ideas for others of you who are schooling at home, or just love to see your children learn. Find all of these posts under the "teach your children well" category.*
We haven't actually decided to homeschool at this point, but Emma is still a year away from starting kindergarten, so I've decided to "play" school with her this year. We'll be learning geography through pen-pal relationships, work on reading skills, and use nature as our science classroom.
I'll be using this blog as a journal of what works and what doesn't. Although, at this age, she is so eager to learn, we find teaching opportunities at every turn. She put this puzzle together by herself. (50 pieces.)
