First Day of School

Yesterday was our first day of school. And it was wonderful...mostly because we started using the CM method. It was a very relaxing, stress-free, learning-filled day.

Once I explained the CM method to the children, they were very eager to get started on this new aspect of our homeschool journey.

I ordered some wonderful books for the new year. They haven't arrived yet, but I did take some photos of what we did on our first day....
                                     Of course, Bible is always our first subject.   :)

              Mimi likes her workbook, but she would rather use manipulatives. I agree with her.  :)

                                                   Aaron working on Math.

                                       Ian writing Scripture verses for penmanship.

                                            Asher decorating his Nature Journal.

                                                  They love the Time Line.

                                      Examining a grasshopper on the our nature hike.

                                                   And a Thorn-back Spider.

                                                        And a Harvestman.

                                         Cracking open a nut to see what's inside.

                                                     Examining some moss.

                                        Back home to journal in our Nature Journals.

Have a blessed day,
