First Day Back To school

Our first day back at school consists of cinnamon rolls (new recipe – Yum!), back to school goodies and photos.

The recipe for the cinnamon rolls was gorgeous.  They turned out much sweeter, with a cinnamon toffee sauce running through them and a cream cheese frosting.  Really yummy!

For their back to school goodies they were given the generic folders, pens, pencils, erasers etc .  In addition to their personal stuff they also received a glimpse of their supplies for the next term.  Our terms tend to be short with a fun week in-between.  This first term will be 5 weeks long and they will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings.  So they were able to have access to their books, dressing up and any planned activities for the term.  They are a little excited!!

Non fiction
Picture books for the little
Our poetry and literature studies
Books for artist and composer study
and finally DVDs……..just for fun!

They also received bits and pieces for their interest led schooling.  T10 got a Lego technic set and a Lego book; L9 got paper making supplies and a non american American doll(their own name for them!) for them to sew historical costumes for; C9 got supplies to knit little Christmas draw-string bags and her own non american American doll; and A3 soon to be A4 received a mosaic kit, a painting by numbers kit and a bracelet making kit.  As part of her schooling she does 3 tray activities a day and these will be perfect for that purpose!

This week we are doing half school to get the older ones used to doing their independent work whilst I school the littles.  Then next week we will add in History for the olders and preschool for A3 and the week after will be full school for four weeks and then a weeks holiday!

  1. I just wanted to say thank you so very much for posting about your amazing unit studies! I have used your fantastic research and book suggestions, not to mention your extremely creative projects, for my own kids in our homeschool. I really appreciate the way you guys study these subjects so in-depth and hands-on; I think it helps the kids understand and internalize the history that we are reading. I know these are (were!) a ton of work on your part, so thank you a million times for sharing that with us!

  2. Would you be able to send me a list of each of the non-fiction + fiction + storybook titles that you used for this study? If there’s any that you didn’t love you could note that. This looks like such a great set!
