Project Home School- Thursday 4/2

Hello everyone!  Today I thought I’d share a fun geometry activity that we did yesterday; it was easy to set up and clean up and was a good exercise in building geometric concepts and vocabulary as well as number recognition. Geometric Mural-Making:  (painters tape, dice, scissors, a blank wall) My kids and I decided to [...]

Project Home School – Monday 3/23

Hello, all.  As we head into our second week at home, I just want to send out a reminder about how I hope you’ll use this newsletter:  Right now, home-schooling is working for my children’s needs for structure and order and for my own mental health needs for predictability in a time of uncertainty.  If [...]

Project Home School Day 1 – Monday 3/16

  Creating a Schedule  Since transitions can be bumpy for my kiddos (and for me!), we’re going to be following a schedule similar to that of school in order to help our kids stay in their familiar groove.  Where it is possible to create some predictability in the day of your kiddo, maintaining a schedule [...]
