classroom re-do

since we're still new to this homeschool thing i've been spending a lot of time researching homeschool rooms online. the kids both get distracted easily, so i know i want to keep it relativly calm in the diningroom/classroom. here's what we have so far, but it's still a BIG work in progress...sorry the picture's not the best quality, i snapped it with my phone.


are you smarter than a kindergartner?

so, homeschooling has been beyond fun (challenging at times, but fun). not to toot my own horn or anything but i consider myself a relatively smart person and didn't see myself having any issues teaching kindergarten (5th grade, perhaps, but not kindergarten)...enter geography...seriously? she's in kindergarten. yesterday, we were continuing our study on europe and i had to look up on google maps where germany was...hello...is it too much to ask for a teacher's manual!?!

capri in all her sweetness looked at me and said, "mama, if you don't know where it is, how will i?" here i thought i was poker facing it rather well...apparently not. but at least i'm educating not only a 2 & 5 year old, but this old broad as well. fingers crossed, i'll pass.
