First Day of Homeschool

Today we started our first official day of homeschooling for this year. We did lots of reading and stuff last year but this year Stephanie has chosen a whole year of curriculum that we started. Today we worked in "Skill Sharpeners Reading" Grade K. It involved phonics, vocabulary, reading comprehension, visual discrimination & fine motor skills. He was enjoying it so much we did more lessons than we probably should have in one day, but he was enjoying it.

We also did a lot of reading and some handwriting. And for PE we spent about an hour in the pool swimming.
It was a very good day and I felt like we had accomplished quite a bit for one day. Hope everyday will be as good. He was eager and interested in it all today. Some days it is not quite this interesting to him. It will be a challenge to keep it interesting and not boring to him.

In all these pictures he is using his left hand. Mostly he switches from hand to hand and it doesn't seem like one is any stronger than the other. He may end up using both hands. It depends on what he is doing as to what hand he favors.
