Letter from POTUS and Sept./Oct. Homeschool Wrap-Up

This year has been wonderful, so far, at Team KEMP Academy!  I’ve had so much joy with the recent attitude adjustment and my patience with my children has definitely been consistent.  I was definitely loving our set schedule but we have fallen off track so I plan to shift the family clock again in the morning.  Our schedule for this year returned to the original 9:00 am start, lunch at noon, and done by 3:00 pm which includes our read aloud time and all solo work.  This schedule has also pushed me to wake up, exercise, and have Bible study time done by 8:30 am.

In the month of September we started school and our journey around the world with My Father’s World (MFW) Exploring Countries and Cultures (ECC) in the United States of America.  We were introduced to different types of maps, a daily Spanish curriculum, and even had Miss Frizzle come teach our Science class once a week.  It was a wonderful start to the academic year and you can hear all about it in this September Wrap-Up video.

 

October proved to be a super busy month for us as we visited the local State Fair, started our reading rewards programs, and added project day to our weekly agenda.  I admit that the addition of project day had me very nervous, as you heard in the video, but it has proven to be quite enjoyable for our oldest.  I’ve even managed to create little things for the two-year-old to do.  In addition we had the great opportunity to watch my husband become an ordained minister and surprised him with a luncheon.  You can hear more about our letter from the President of the United States and gifts from Mexico in this recent video.

 

Again, I am so grateful to my husband for allowing me the chance to educate our arrows at home.  No day is 100% perfect but every memory created with our cool kids is so precious.  Being there for the entire process from introduction to content mastery is a gift that I dare not take for granted. I love our homeschool!

 

Make today pleasant,

Comment Question:

  1. What goals have you set for your homeschooling year? 
  2. If you could do it all over again, would you still consider homeschooling at all, never begin the journey, or start much sooner than you did?

We CONQUERED Kindergarten!

I’d like to start blog off by giving my family a super High-5 and Double Fist Pump for having an awesome homeschool year! Oh yeah! We did it!! We kicked Kinder’s butt!

For our curriculum this year we used My Father’s World and we supplemented with various workbooks, unit studies I created, and library items. We attended eight field trips, joined a great Christian homeschool group, and even hosted a Super Science class at our local recreation center. YES, you read correctly, we did all of that while welcoming a new, SURPRISE BABY into our family and adjusting our lives accordingly. We did that! We kicked Kinder’s butt!!

WE DID IT BY THE GRACE OF THE MOST HIGH, SOVEREIGN GOD!

I’m truly enjoying our homeschool journey and watching my children grow academically and family grow closer through the process. God is so good! I’m grateful for my King, my husband that has allowed the opportunity to train our arrows. I’m also extremely appreciative for those that support our journey and encourage us. We give God all the praise for an awesome year and look forward to a fantastic first grade school year.

Homeschool was our choice and it is working well for us but no matter how your family decides to educate your children be sure to stay involved. Encourage your children daily, be present at the school often, and communicate with all staff involved in your child’s school day. I’m talking ALL STAFF! Say hello to the lunch lady and bus monitor, wave at the teacher’s aid, and hug the teacher. Make your presence known so every person knows your child’s education is important to you. Keep your arrows sharp.

If you’re interested in items I used during our Kindergarten year, details on My Father’s World, and a homeschool room tour, check out the videos below. Additional videos can be found via my youtube channel.
