a typical day in my home school preschool

electricity on the chalk board
At our house we are doing home school preschool, this week's letter is E. We learned the sounds it makes and how to write it; and today we learned about electricity because that starts with E! One of the things we did that I don't have photos of was the demonstration of a static balloon lighting up a florescent light bulb. The kids loved that!

e is for electricity

drawing electricity

Above: my daughter drew a picture of electric wires and how we should never touch them. If you look hard you can see other pictures she drew about lightning and not touching outlets. Safety was a big part of this lesson as well as how some things are powered by electricity.

eating electricity

We even ate lightning shaped lunch!
coloring
Above: my son is coloring a worksheet I made.
If you want to use it too, go ahead!

I love your home school day. I have also home schooled. My boys are big now, but seeing your day makes me remember how precious and fleeting those wonderful days are! ENJOY!!!

I love that you do homeschool preschool! I've been trying to do it with Dennis. When we get back we should plan some activities together!
