Week 1, Day 1

Often one of the biggest hurdles to beginner homeschoolers, or just those considering it, is how to set up a comprehensive lesson plan to keep a child on track and following state standards. It can be a daunting task and truly overwhelming! I wanted to share with you our daily activities, both to keep as a log for myself to look back upon, and to share ideas and encouragement with you. If you're new or on the fence, maybe this will give you that boost to get moving and know you can do this! If you're familiar with homeschooling maybe we can share ideas :)
