The packets were perfect as-is for pre-school level kiddos. Counting objects, identifying missing letters, identifying words in a story, creating patterns, pages for a "book report." Marshall is currently doing first grade level work, and he still loved this packet. I added some of our Star Wars readers to the mix, had the kids read them aloud, and had them handwrite part of their own book reports to make it more appropriate for their age level.
A sweet homeschooling mama of four kiddos created this packet, along with several others. Each has a different theme such as astronaut, cowboys, firemen and knights. Her website/blog are full of all kinds of free high-quality printables and resources that she created and is now sharing with other families. I felt like I hit the homeschool jackpot when I came upon her website.
And, so did my kids. Yes, they are in their pajamas again. Marshall is wearing Christmas pajamas, and Eliza is wearing pajamas that are slightly too small because I hadn't quite finished the laundry yet. And Marshall is using grown-up scissors because his hands have outgrown safety scissors. What? Why is he so big all of a sudden?
I'm planning for next year to use the homeschool planner this mom designed. It is $20.00 but comes as a PDF file that I can print and use every year. More importantly, I can personalize the pages to meet our family's needs and print off as many as I need as things change for us or when I make mistakes (which I inevitably will!). Check it out!!
