Back-To-School

It’s back-to-school for most of the kiddos in our area so I thought it would be good idea to let y’all know what we do for back-to-school. We actually school year round with each school year starting the first Monday of January. I have made some traditions because when I went to school I would get myself up, get myself breakfast and then head off to school. Even though I loved school getting myself ready and sending myself off wasn’t fun or exciting.

We start off the first day of school with a big breakfast. I make a fritata, which is basically an open-faced omelet, adding in all of our daughter’s favorites. Green onions, spinach, tomatoes, bacon, cheese, cheese and some more cheese. Along with a big cup of chocolate milk. While she is still eating I set up all the items we’ll be using that day during school. For our curriculum we use Timberdoodle Co.

Once breackfast and teeth brushing are done our daughter gets to choose what she would like to wear that day. PJs or regular clothes ar…

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts. Djeco So Pop is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit. The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue.


What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book. 

I’d definitely recomm…

Review: What Do Grown-ups Do All Day?

The book What Do Grown-ups Do All Day? came with our 2018-2019 Timberdoodle PreK Elite Kit. It goes through 14 different job sights and explains each job within them. The explanations aren’t to long so it’s easy for kids to grasp the concept of each job. Even though it only does 14 job locations it showcases different jobs for each place. For me there was a huge downside. The very first job sight is a school which I don’t mind but it never mentions that some families homeschool. As a homeschool mom I’d love it if this book also included this way of doing school. For this reason I’m very glad Timberdoodle took it out of the 2019-2020 kit.

Review: Learn and Draw Animals + Places

Animals + Places is great for building creative skills. Although, it shows you how to draw facial features and other things in different ways. It allows kids to draw them anyway they want. Some pages are blank to let the child get extremely creative by drawing whatever they please. It is however very repetitive either with “draw what’s missing” or just coloring. I wouldn’t say it’s a must have but it’s definitely fun for kids.


Review: Mathematical Reasoning

I love math and wanted our daughter to gain the same passion for it I have. Mathematical Reasoning Beginning 1 and Beginning 2 have been an amazing curriculum for early math. Beginning 2 came with our Timberdoodle PreK Elite Kit and was a hit right off the bat. Our daughter loves the bright and colorful pages. She was doing so well with this book I went ahead and got Beginning 1 because I figured always getting the answers right would help build confidence and it did.



The books get increasingly more challenging but then go back to an easier concept which is great reviewing and not getting burnt out. I love that they include riddles, number writing practice, drawing shapes and a ton more. However, I do wish they talked more shapes and colors. I’ve taught dark/light colors and a ton of shapes but we’re over halfway down with the book and it has only gone over triangle, square and rectangle.
