Homeschooling First Day Traditions

One of the best things about homeschooling is that you aren’t snapping a picture of your kids as they climb on the bus, but can create your own Homeschooling First Day Traditions.

That’s without a doubt my favorite part of homeschooling.

Some traditions you might want to start with your kids this year:

All About Me

This is really going to be fun!

I want to have each kid write several things on a piece of paper and put them in the front of their school year binder (we are required to keep a portfolio):

  • Favorite game to play
  • Favorite color
  • Favorite book
  • Favorite meal
  • Favorite toy
  • Favorite holiday
  • Favorite subject in school
  • Another state (or country) they would like to visit
  • Their signature

All really fun things that must likely change year to year, and I think are fun to look back on as they grow up.

Here the pools don’t close until a week or so after school starts.

Why not head to the pool now that all the public school kids are back in school?

If you are a part of a homeschool group, then find out if there is interest and plan a party for everyone!

You could make it an annual event so the kids will have a fun event to look forward to every year with their friends.

If you don’t want to plan a group activity, just make it a family event. I’m sure the kids would love it either way.

Big Breakfast

Start the big day off with a big breakfast.

Get fancier than toast or cereal.

Maybe make some waffles, have some fresh berries for on top with whipped cream, I am drooling over here now!
