Back To School: End Of The Week At A Glance

Posted on Posted in Homeschool

I’ve shared Monday and Tuesday’s plans with you, and now it’s time to finish off the week.

My back-to-school planner for week 1. Come see what we're doing to kick things off!

I don’t make all my own curriculum, but sometimes I want something that is really hard to find.  So that’s when I do my own.  I am by no means an artist, so no need to critique me–my kids are impressed, and that’s what’s important 🙂 .  However, since I made them all and they only get used once a year, I’ll share them with you at the end of the post.

Wednesday

In my packet, you’ll find four different levels of cutting practice.  This is an activity designed for many levels of little fingers to be doing together.  They are made to color and then cut.  This is to make it last more than four minutes.  Also, I only have two pair of scissors, so the fastest colorers can cut while the others are still coloring.

The one page that is colored in the packet, I have cut out (myself), written the noun on the back lightly and laminated.  I use it for the crossword puzzles as well as the math projects we’ll be working on.  There are four different levels of crosswords too.  My kids will do the easier ones first and usually ask to do them them again later in the week, at which point I give them the harder ones with the laminated cutouts.

Thursday

I have language arts pages in my packet we’ll spend a bit of time on, and we will work on math.  I am going to do a math journal with my kindergartner this year.  It’s my first year doing this, so wish me luck.  If any of you have done these and liked them, please feel free to give me tips.

We will do a word finding-painting project.  The preK’s will just find letters.  My kids love this activity.  We do it a lot.

Friday

Friday morning consists of each kid looking through their folder of work for the week.  They each get to pick their favorite activity from the week.  It doesn’t have to be from our themed projects, but it usually is.

We do show and tell to work on speech.  There’s no test this week.

Lastly, we will do a writing project, followed by an art project for Grandparent’s Day. Grandparent’s Day is September 7 this year.

That’s the week.  I think we’ll have a blast.  Do you all celebrate Grandparent’s Day?  I’d love to hear how you do that.

  1. You’re welcome. It’s one thing I really slack on–maybe why my kids aren’t using the scissors well until 6 or older (oops). My goal is to have all lessons and themes lined up the month before. I’m trying to have more scissor work for them.
