AfterSchool Link Party

Welcome to the AfterSchool Party!

I keep thinking life will slow down, but ever since school has started we've been BUSY!  I've tried to keep our extracurricular activities balanced, but I'm not sure how good I've been at it.  I think the kids still have plenty of down time.  However, I think it's me that's busy making sure everyone is where they need to be at any given time.  I'll have to work on it!

writing skills

Sassyfras and Juiciness have been working hard on their writing skills.  They've been working in the Handwriting Without Tears workbooks, but I've also put together a few fun activities for them. One tray has alphabet stamps, paper, and pencils.  They love stamping letters and then copying them.

We also have a few of the Kumon workbooks.  Juiciness is working in the tracing book, but he also loves the maze book.

Handwriting Without Tears is such a good system in my non-professional opinion. Sounds like you guys are getting a lot of writing work done.

My kids used HWOT too, love it. I hear you about activities and getting everyone where they need to be. I don't think my kids are over scheduled but with four kids,I am over scheduled!

I have never heard of that program...I am going to look into it! Thanks!

I think during this season of school we all get that feeling over being over scheduled. I love that our kids are engaged and have opportunities learn and making friendships. Just sometimes which is wasn't me running all over with them! Love Handwriting Without Tears, great program!

I think Anna's school uses some of HWOT as well for K. Whatever they did sort of worked - daughter is a much happier writer this year than she was last year. Maybe her fine motor skills finally caught up enough for writing not to be a physical struggle.
