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 breakfast and teeth brushing are done our daughter gets to choose what she would like to wear that day. PJs or regular clothes are fine with me. Then we go to our school table and she chooses what she thinks will be the coolest thing for the day and I take a picture of her with it. I also take a video of her and ask her what she thinks of school.
After completing school, we paint and then get an ice pop. Our daughter loves painting and after her art is dry I hang them around the house. I love seeing the sense of pride on her face when I hang up all her paintings. I want her to know that we are proud of her and encourage her artistic creativity. The painting below is one that recently got hung up. It was from our homeschool group Shark Week Event.
So, that’s what we do for back-to-school. Below you’ll find what others do for traditions, their tips or plans for the semester/year. I’d love to hear what y’all do for the back-to-school season or any questions you might have; just hit up the comment section below.
