Day 8 Homeschool Preschool With Bugzy & Buddy

We had a backward day today! We created a new and extended schedule because I spent some quality time this weekend planning for hands-on learning activities for Bugzy and Buddy.

It worked or at least worked for today. Fingers crossed, I can keep up with these plans of mine as the week progresses.

Unfortunately, I took only a few pictures today, so this post won’t have as many images as I usually post.

Homeschool Preschool Daily Schedule 

  • Free play ( Kids created a volcano this morning)

  • Cook dinner together
Bugzy wanted to help me make dinner after reading Tomatoes for Neela.

What Worked for Preschool and Toddler Play Today

  • With the flexibility of our schedule, I changed our plans multiple times today, and each time Bugzy and Buddy just went with it. 
  • Using a chart to reinforce sounds we are learning. I know keep a running list of Secret Stories we have learned on the window with an expo marker.

What needs to improve before tomorrow 

  • The layout of the learning area; 
    • Bugzy and I just changed the location of our center activities. This change helped make them easier for independent use.
  • Organization of materials; 
    • I spent hours this afternoon reorganizing the closets in the playroom and bedrooms to quickly grab what is needed and keep playing. 

Favorite Memory from Day 8 Homeschool Preschool with Bugzy & Buddy 

Seeing the kids playing together today. Today was the first day in a long time (okay, maybe ever), we didn’t have a single sibling quarrel. They worked well together all day. I share this not to brag but to document and study why this happened so I can bottle it and replicate this occurrence day after day!

I loved today! But especially the moments watching them work together without me.
