First off, I need to say, "THANKS!" I was not sure what or how these crazy ideas I have would pan out, but the feedback I've gotten has been so encouraging to me. Thank you all for your kind words and interest in my blog/ plans.
I was just informed that one of the links on the lesson plan doesn't work, and I went on to check and it's true it was missing one little number... argghh! But nonetheless, I corrected it and anyone who gets them after this post gets the updated working link.
The new link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukqe_6L9V54. See that "4", it was missing. :) It's the second web link to Day 1(Science).
Also the reader asked me about pictures of the activities. I just wanted to let you know the plan from here on out. This blog will still be a place I post the activities we do. I'm going to start our year early, so I can help all those people who are in early communities. I will post things that I have planned and let you hear about the highs and lows of the days.
So, yes, to let you know pictures will be coming to a computer near you. I know that "Earth Model" on Day 1 might be hard to visualize, and that is the reason I will post pictures before you do them. I just couldn't put pictures in the file or else it would have made it too lengthy to send via email.
For right now, my goal is to finish the rest. Please pray that I can get them done before we begin.
Just FYI, I will post on January 7th the activities of Day 1. Chances are it will be after they get to bed, so just check the blog that evening. If you have the lesson plans, you will be able to follow along easily.
Best way to stay up to date is to just subscribe to the posts. Then you will see the examples right in your inbox.
Thanks to all who also signed up as members. I just want you to know I appreciate you doing that.
All the comments have been so sweet to hear. I'm so excited for the new semester to take off. If you haven't received any lessons from me yet, please check the comments and make sure you left your correct email. I want to make sure everyone gets them before we start the new semester.
Here's my sweet little man with his Christmas gift from Santa.
I feel just like the helicopter!
I'm ready to start flying!
Hopefully you are too!
Blessings to you!
