This week I decided to do something a bit differently. I went ahead and hooked up my camera during my lesson planning and talked through the whole process. This was always something I found helpful when I watched other veteran homeschoolers do it, and I thought I'd give it a try as well.
I use my PK/Kindergarten Bucket Planner to organize all of my resources and curriculum choices and have an entire Masterclass video series dedicated to it all. You can view it for free in Member Freebies. This planning process takes a bit of time up front, but once I put it in place, it has made things so much easier to put together. I also love that I can continue to organize new resources that I find along the way.
In this video, I am also using the Weekly Planning Sheet from the planner. You can also download this for free if interested. The planning sheet contains each of the following buckets: Discipleship, Reading/Writing, Math, Social Studies, Science, Creative Expression, Health & PE, and Life Skills. These buckets align with my planner and make it easy to write meaningful lessons that allow for plenty of engagement and activity for my little one.
This week we are studying "Elephants" with My Father's World Curriculum. Although we use the curriculum as a tool for inspiration, we don't follow it exactly. We pick and choose what works for us, and then add anything else we want to do.
