Homeshooling Fail

For the last 2 months, most of our homeschooling has been VERY basic.  I've read them books about our topics and I've taught them the ASL letter of the week.  We talked a lot about the subjects in casual conversation but we've done hardly any "real" homeschooling.  As least we haven't home-schooled like I had been planning.  But, the kids have played outside a lot (we had a long, unusual "Indian" summer) and they played together a lot.  Besides, they're 3, 2, and 1 currently.  There's plenty of time for schooling later.  Sometimes I feel like a failure... but I'm also learning to accept life as it is happening now.  And, really, it's not that bad.

Here are the themes I didn't blog:

d- duck (pond)
           number line busy bag
          spelling folder game

e- eggs (metamorphosis, frog and butterfly life cycles)*
          folder games

r- rain (water cycle, rainbow, colors)
          color spelling
          writing practice

Oo- ocean
          Nemo folder game

I've also been getting the house organized (again and again) and making/knitting Christmas gifts.  Now that it's dark and rainy all day, I'd like to get back to planning more homeschooling activities.  Next week, "g is for groceries."
