We started out with a Daddy Donut Day!
Then took pictures holding up the grade level we are in!
Here are the kids outside their new classroom. We meet at a local church. There were first day butterflies that quickly subsided once class began.
Here they are with the entire group during opening session.
They start out with pledges and then family presentations. Alexis volunteered to hold up the pledge words (on the far right)…I’d say she’s just like her mama getting up there with no fear but later she played shy a lot so I’m still learning about her personality.
They have a fantastic teacher! (actually they call them tutors because I am their teacher). In this picture she is teaching Latin with hand motions.
Here they are tracing the 5 states of the week. They will be memorizing all the states and capitals this year.
After 3 hours of class, the kids head to the church’s indoor slides for recess. Afterwards, we go to the cafeteria to eat lunch together.
Then we head back home to do the rest of our homeschooling at home.
It was an excellent first day. The kids loved class and made new friends! I’ve remained on schedule with my cooking and cleaning but I lost my voice on Wednesday, so we have yet to implement our NEW homeschool schedule. I’m on anti-biotics and drinking hot tea with honey and praying I’m all better soon so we can dig into our new curriculum! (If you remember last year’s first day of school ,we had a mishap of a toilet overflowing and running into our kitchen light fixture! It seems that first weeks do not agree with us lol!)
How was your first day?
