Last night our homeschool group planning meeting went well! There were six of us moms there planning and organizing the upcoming homeschool activities for the year. Here is a short list of what we came up with (note we have dates and places established, however I will not be posting that sort of information online):
Pumpkin Patch Visit followed by a snack time at my house (We will also celebrate St. Therese’s feast day with hot chocolate and a quick "French" soup, probably served to everyone in paper cups or something else simple).
Dairy Farm Tour, followed by a snack of milk and cookies
Liturgical Calendar Activity-followed by a tour of the sacristry.
Lapbook Activity-Kids will present the lapbook they created beforehand.
Christmas Party with a presentation of a Christmas-themed short essay.
Dioramas with an Epiphany theme
Puppet Show practice and presentation on the following meeting time.
Sound like a lot? It’s really not when you have people that are involved and willing to organize a meeting. Some of the moms preferred to bring the snacks when we meet, and not necessarily be in charge of a activity/tour/etc. So it works well when everyone brings different gifts to the table.
