we’re beginning our first year with two students! of course Nicolas has been learning right along with us for a few years now. and even though we’ve waited to introduce formal lessons, he can already read beginner books. declaring this his kinder year really just means that i will be a bit more focused, strewing his path with good things.
each week we’ll focus on a letter of the alphabet a la Elizabeth’s lovely plans in Along the Alphabet Path. we’ll read an ABC of storybooks by the author or illustrator’s name, study a saint and make a letter-themed snack using the free resources at All About Reading.
i’ve been wanting a way to organize + keep track of the storybooks that we are reading…so much harder than tracking chapter book read alouds. i didn’t like mixing the titles into my goodreads list and i didn’t like signing in + out to keep a separate list. so i’ve started gathering them at Pinterest.
