Our first day of back-to-homeschool isn't until next month; we plan to start back the day after Labor Day. There is the chance...a slim one...that I'll finish my lesson schedule and we'll start earlier. Mr. B is begging:)
The Homeschool Village is discussing today how homeschool families celebrate the first day of school, so I've been giving this some thought as well.
For our previous *first days* we always have a nice breakfast, take special pictures and have a great lunch, along with doing some schoolwork. But I'm thinking maybe something more memorable is in order.
Some thoughts I've had are:
- baking cookies together
- gift wrapping their new school supplies and having them on their desks for them
- having them draw a self-portrait for their school scrapbooks
- doing a back-to-school art project
I'd love to hear your thoughts on what you plan to do with your kiddos~leave me a comment!
