A lovely commenter made me realise that I hadn’t posted an updated First Day of School Booklet for this year. I actually started them ages ago and just hadn’t finished them up and gotten them posted. So here they are! (Download here or click the cover images below.)
Can I just pause and say I love when it’s back to school time in America? It hits just when I’m hitting the February homeschool ‘blahs’. For me, since we school on a calendar year, those February ‘blahs’ hits in August. And suddenly the bloggy world is full of lovely back to school posts, schoolroom pics, curriculum choices, etc. The excitement is catching! Then there are the sales too. It’s a good time of year to stock up on digital curriculum.
Anyway…here’s a glimpse at the cover choices. It occurred to me as I was completing these with my own kids that it would be nice to have some different covers so everybody could choose their own. Nothing fancy, but if your kids are like mine they’ll still fight over who gets which one. (Ha!)
Still two choices for a back cover, one with a Bible verse and one without. Good for classrooms! I sound like an infomercial. [‘But wait, there’s more! Not only do you get your choice of front cover, you can also choose from not just one, but two back covers! There’s no better value than that, Sally!’]
Inside the booklet are places to record that all-important information! [‘Really, Peter? We get pages to go between our covers? What more could you need?’]
These all fold up into a little booklet to have as a keepsake. The pages could also be cut in half and stapled together if that’s easier for you (or your kids!) to put together. [‘So easy even a child could do it, Sally!’] I’ve actually found that my kids don’t like to complete these all at once. So they are more like a ‘First Week of School’ project for us!
