PLANS FOR 2016

I used some time in the end of the year to plan some things to do in the new year.

1. Preschool for Baby Sis
YAY!! I am planning stuff for her to do! I thought of letting her go through a thematic preschool for one and half year. Since this MIGHT be the last time I have a chance to teach the littles (SOB!!!), I thought I really wanted to do some thing I have always wanted do - thematic study. She will begin with "Winter" in January.
I am excited!!

2. I wanted to work a little harder with Lil Sis on her sight words. So, I might plan out some games for her.

3. We took a LONG time to read Twice Freed. Now we are moving on to "Door in the Wall". I hope we will do better in this one, if possible.
