Long gone are my exclusively homeschooled days..Yes, I am a kindergartner now. I miss my homeschool though. So Mom and I plan to have some homeschool activities on a regular basis. But Mom is not finding enough time.Hopefully we balance our schedule next year..
Wonder what this has to do with 'homeschooling'?!Well, mom encouraged me to 'apply' one of my prekindergarten skill:"Sorting".A pile for shirts, a pile for pants and so on.. Note from Mom: "SHH...No seriously...Thats what (one of) my intention was. ;-)"

My Animal Parade
We combined healthy diet with Money learning. For every food group I consume in a day, I get to pocket a penny/nickel/dime/ quarter per serving as specified in the pockets. We made little pockets out of transparent album sheets and stick it to the wall and put matching color sheets to go with the food group in the chart. Nice incentive to consume food in all groups and cool way to learn money. This is my food (piggy) bank - I can use the money I earn towards things of my choice. :-)
Read Mom's game extensions here using this chart.
We went to the Aquarium and I sat down with mom to make this Lapbook about sea animals. I colored and glued the fishes on the front. We made mini Tab Books listing the animal and its primary food. We also made a pizza book to go with this lapbook.
This was my own story that I narrated (in Jan 2006) and Mom wrote it down. We made illustrations using scrapebook papers and glued them on. It is a story about a duck that runs into a problem with the glue..You can click on any picture to see them big & clear.
For each alphabet I made an Accordian style mini book and glued them on the inside folders in the alphabetical order.
