We Did It!

Well, today we finished our prep work for the meeting. Yes, this counts as school. This is the most important work there is. We read, wrote and discussed everything that will be used and discussed at the meeting. The book Come Be My Follower is not on mp3 yet so I could not download that but that is where we practiced our reading.

I also made these pages that I will probably work on a bit

more still. Tomorrow will be a longer text so I will see if the lines are too big and maybe I can put 2 days into one page. This is counting as handwriting. I told them they had to do their best handwriting on these pages. Now hopefully their writing will get better and not look like chicken scratch.

I think this is a good time to start a new schedule that includes all prep work for the meetings and try to make it still. We started out our year right. Now, let's see if we can keep it going. A sister is working on her schedule and I figured I would too and see if we can stick to it. I will eventually post on my schedule when I get done with it.

So what have you all done? Are you including meeting prep as part of your school day or do you do it later on in the evening?

I think including meeting prep as part of school is wonderful. I have done it most of the time that we have home schooled with the exception of the beginning of the new year. I will definately be incorporating it again. like you said it is the best kind of school for them.

The simplified meeting arrrangement is making it so much easier to include the children in studying. We have been doing the bible reading as part of school for months, the book study occasionally. We can be a bit more organized about it now. And I love that we're doing the Lr book!!!
