Homeschool Preschool : Day in the Life
Last week on Instagram I shared another look at our Homeschool Preschool schedule through a #dayinthelife series. I have been sharing our Homeschool Preschool schedule in sections and I thought it might be helpful to get a glimpse of it all together. Of course, the trouble is that no two days ever look the same. One of my favorite things about being home with our kids right now is the freedom that allows and we certainly embrace that. That being said, this is a typical day. A Monday, I believe. So here it is, a peek into one of our days...

A DAY IN THE LIFE : BAMBINI HOMESCHOOL PRESCHOOL
My day usually starts a little earlier than theirs. I have learned that I need to get up earlier so I can enjoy some quiet before they wake up. I am not a morning person and they are both energetic and talkative in the morning. I need some time to prepare. I usually shower and then work on the blog for a little while or catch up on emails.
They are both up, dressed and set to get ready for the day. We are all in the kitchen helping to unload the dishwasher and make breakfast. Smoothies today!
Breakfast is winding down. They take turns doing the weather and calendar jobs and then we read a couple of books.
On the wall is also our letter of the week, our alphabet with people paired below, and our Little Passports Map.
We are at the pond. Our adventure today was a flower walk. We walked about a mile around the neighborhood looking for and collecting flowers.
Then we stopped at the pond to watch the ducks and look for fish.
Back at home we sorted all of our treasures by color. Apparently our neighborhood has an abundance of yellow. We talked a lot about different shades of colors which has a big topic of conversation lately.
We start pressing the flowers to make suncatchers the next day.
(Don't worry, they were all wild flowers or picked with permission)
The kids go play when we are done until lunchtime. They have been building lots of houses with magnatiles lately.
Lunchtime and Group time. Along with flowers and weather, we have also been learning about different kinds of homes lately. This grew out of an interest in apartments they saw downtown.
Today we read The Bear Snores On (awesome read aloud) and An Evening at Alfie's (current author study book) and talked about animal vs. people homes.
Drawing pictures at the start of Quiet Time. She drew a picture of our house, he drew a picture of a tornado on top of an apartment.
I worked on cleaning up the kitchen and starting a load of laundry. Then we read the last two chapters of the 4th Magic Treehouse Book.
Then they both (yay!) took a nap and I worked on the blog and downloaded way too many photos from my phone onto the computer.
We didn't do our usual afternoon invitation today.
They ate a snack at the gym while I did a quick workout and then we drove to the park.
This park also has a pond, so the duck watching was continued. Then they played at the playground. The Spring weather is so inviting it is hard to leave.
Back at home they played in the playroom while I made a simple dinner.
Their daddy was traveling for work this week so the three of us ate around 5:45p and then they took a bath.
Our days always end with stories. We have re-read Otis and the Tornado every night for weeks.
I'm so glad we own this one because they would be heartbroken if we had to bring it back to the library.
They have been trying to follow along with me while I read and since we've read it so much they can recite most of the book.
Then it's hugs and kisses and off to bed.
What do your days look like? Similar? Way different? I'd love to hear!
