Preschool Corner – Catching up…where did summer go??

preschool corner

We just got done with the busiest 6 weeks of my life (Okay, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but only slight), which is why there have been a lack of blog posts. Hopefully, especially after the Warrior Dash this weekend, life will return to normal :)

We actually did get some school activities done during July, I just have not had the time and brain cells to blog about it. I figured since we’ll be starting new curriculum in two weeks, I better do a wrap up of what we just finished! So get ready for a month’s worth of pictures (just from preschool, that is). We also finished our Zoo unit and did a bit of a bubbles unit somewhere in there, but I’m just going to skip them and let you know that we had fun :)

All of the activities that are listed here I wrote about in my Preschool Planning – 4th of July post.

We actually did everything on the plan sheet, including all the books (Gotta love interlibrary loan!) It was a good unit, even if it did take us a month to complete :)

I love that about homeschooling! That you can take a month (in the summer, no less) to do a unit. I wish my parents could have homeschooled me. You (and your kids) are so lucky. :-)

I love the cupcake fireworks! I hope I can remember it next summer. Looks like lots of fun.
