One thing we started the towards the end of last year that I'm looking forward to continuing this year is our morning notebooks.
They each have their own notebook with several pages in plastic sheet protectors. Each morning they start school by completing the pages in the notebook. We use dry erase markers so we can wipe the pages off and use them over and over!
What's in their notebooks you ask? Take a look!
My preschooler has these pages:
She will trace the date, day of the week, and month,
And then each day we will fill in the day on the calendar.
She'll also have these pages to trace the alphabet and numbers.
My first grader will have these pages:
As of now, these aren't available anywhere, but there are plenty of pages like this available online. Confessions of a Homeschooler has a great free set (the alphabet tracing pages above are from her) so if you're looking for some, check her website here!
