... now where's my commemorative t-shirt?
The original plan was for BB to start Pre-K in the Fall. However, due to our move, Pre-K got put off until after the holidays. And, I might add, pretty much forgotten about until Sunday, when it dawned on me that the holidays were now over. Drat.
Fortunately, I had purchased the marerials needed prior to our moving. All that was needed was for me to go over the materials, set up, and plan. Two days is a bit of a short planning period, but BB doesn't know what to expect when it comes to school, and it's only Pre-K.
Our first day went surprisingly well. We're definitely going to have to work on sitting still and listening. I'm a bit unsure as to what level of behavior I should expect from BB during school. There's a whole new level of familiarity with BB that I haven't had with a student before, so I'm not sure if I should treat him like his mom or like his teacher during the school hours.
The plan as of now is to do Pre-K 3 days a week, for a couple hours each day. Since I have already taught BB some of the basics, I will most likely focus on what I'm not inclined to do already with BB - art, music, and science. For the three R's, I plan on assessing what he already knows and building from that.
I've never homeschooled before, and I've never seen it modeled (my homeschool year was correspondence). I don't know how else to teach except for how I taught in the classroom. This will certainly be a learning process for both of us. I might post about what we're doing from time to time, but don't count on schooling becoming a regular feature ;)
