Homeschool Highlights: Letter G

G'day, just a few highlights from our study of the letter G!

Glittery green playdough

Sequencing, sorting and sums with goats and geese


Gathering gardenias and geraniums


Glorious gorgeous garlands (and gorgeous girls!)

I've really enjoyed working our way through the alphabet like this. It has been a lot of fun and Kees has developed a firm grasp of the letters and sounds. He is now beginning reading, which is an exciting time for him. (He knows how to spell some naughty words. Uh oh.) I am pleased about his progress, but also a little bit sad - just another part of babyhood being left behind. I find parenthood is filled with a mixture of excitement about the future and nostalgia for the past. And enjoying the present, of course!

Yesterday is history

Tomorrow is a mystery

Today is a gift

That's why it's called the present!

Wishing you a lovely present! xx

  1. Wow Cath, yet again another awesome homeschooling moment! I was thinking of you this past Friday as Harry's teacher organised a astronomy night for the kids. They are studying space right now and so she got 3 astronomers to come with all different sized telescopes and we spent 1.5 hours gazing at the sky. It was fantastic. I am ever so grateful he has an amazing teacher like her. Not too many teachers would take a Friday night off to hang out with their class. I am supposed to get some pics soon to share with you. Miss ya mate, oh and by the way, our tickets are booked - Australia here we come!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your comments. I love to read them. xx
