How has your week of homeschooling been going? Can you believe that fall is almost here? I’m so excited! Our summer has been too long and too hot for my tastes. This week was a bit of a flop, homeschooling-wise, as both Noctis and I have come down with a cold. Sola has not caught the cold thus far.
If you missed my first week’s post about our Waldorf kindergarten homeschool lesson plans, the books needed to complete our year of lesson plans are listed at the bottom of this post. I will continue to post these lesson plans on Thursdays of the week before they are meant to be used, so that you can be sure you have all the supplies you need to do these with us, if you’d like.
Lesson Plan for Week of September 15
- Nursery Rhyme – Sing a Song of Sixpence
A pocket full of rye.
Four and twenty blackbirds
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
The birds began to Sing.
Now wasn’t that a dainty dish to set before the king?
County his money,
The Queen was in her parlor
Eating bread and honey,
The maid was in the garden
Hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose!
