As Summer Winds Down

As Summer winds down, I find myself torn between trying to 'fit it all in', and just savoring the time that I have left with Lil Man before he goes off to school.

We've been doing a little bit of both. Between the pool, the amusement park, movies, and just hanging out at home, we are enjoying the last of our summer.

Lil Man and I are often 'on the go'. I'm just not one to stay home every day. I tend to get a little stir crazy, but I do try to schedule at least one day a week where we stay home.

And I've thoroughly enjoyed our leisure days at home as well as our busy days out and about.



But we are also in Kindergarten preparation mode, and I'm trying to make it as fun as possible.




I bought a workbook,  and we've been doing a few pages of that a day. And I also bought some flash cards that are fun. And of course there are fun educational games also. The main thing (especially for Lil Man) is to keep it fun.

Some ideas for Kindergarten prep in addition to workbooks and flashcards are:

Sidewalk chalk (Drawing and working on identifying and writing letters and numbers).
Painting is always fun.
We use Dry Erase crayons (cause I'm too cheap to buy the actual window ones) and practice / have fun with writing on the windows.



A google search will give you a ton of resources on the internet, but I came across this site http://www.education.com/games/kindergarten/  and of course http://pbskids.org/games/ and they seem like they have some fun games that Lil Man will enjoy.

As Summer winds down we are shifting gears into fall and the upcoming school year. But we are also enjoying every last moment of summer that we can!






Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends. Thank you for helping me follow my dream.
