It seems like The Good and The Beautiful is everywhere these days! So, I decided to try it out with my four year old. Thankfully, Jenny Phillips created a program perfect for children who are transitioning toward Kindergarten.
What Does the Course Cover? This course helps children (usually ages 4-6) master letters and their sounds. It also teaches long and short vowels, phonemic awareness, isolating sounds in a word, reading simple two and three letter words, sight words (I, a, the, see), counting from 10-15, fine motor skills, rhyming, sorting, order of events, and more. http://www.jennyphillips.com/course/l…
When we first started homeschooling, I completely overscheduled our family. I felt like we needed to use every curriculum, do every extracurricular activity, and constantly keep busy. It was incredibly overwhelming, especially since I had five children until nine at the time. What was I thinking?!
Here is some advice that I’ve gathered over the years to prevent this from happening again. I hope it helps you!
I have tried *many* homeschool planners over the years, and I think I finally created one that works well for our large family!

I have five children and we needed a few extra things for the end of the school year. We have a *huge* Dollar Tree in our town, where I found most of these items, but I always picked up a few things from Amazon (links below).

I’ll be honest with you: this has been a difficult homeschool year for our family. We have had to make many BIG changes in a short amount of time.
