Here is what I have set up right now.
The first thing you can see is that everything, and I mean everything, is laminated. If you have a homeschool, I urge you...invest in a laminator. I snagged the Purple Cow laminator they sell at Costco for $19.99, which includes a generous supply of plastic sheets in three different sizes. It's a glorious machine. After I bought it I literally spent days laminating everything I could get my paws on.
Suddenly, everything I have is reusable! It's a miracle.
After I laminated all the pages I taped them on to a white poster board I found at Target for around 99 cents.
The first thing we do each day is say our Morning Offering. This is a really simple but sweet prayer for children that I pieced together using various sources around the internet and in print.
Then we move on to the Virtue of the Day (printable found here). While I like the virtue cards, the definitions are too complicated for my little ones so I am working on making my own.
Following that we go over the Shape of the Day (download available here) and Telling Time. About half the time I'll set the clock and the kids will need to tell me what it is, then help write it. On other occasions I'll have them arrange the clock hands according to a time I tell them.
Here we come to our Temperature Chart (printable available here) and Weather Graph. This is exciting because the kids get to break out the wet-erase Vis-A-Vis pens (they're much nicer on laminate plastic compared to the dry-erase markers) and fill in the correct information for the day all on their own. :)
The Today Song is usually sung after our opening prayer, but we'll pretend it's next since that's how I took the pictures. ;) I got this fun idea from Delightful Learning. The tune is to the song Frère Jacques.
Lastly we work with our Money Chart. I applied velcro to several coins that I keep separately so that the kids can stick them to the velcro strips on the page.
From here we'll look at a wooden Melissa & Doug calendar we have so that we can go over the month and date.
Next time I'll share photos of what the rest of our homeschool space looks like!
