The start of a new term is always daunting for me. I worry that I haven't done enough preparation, because usually I haven't had the time throughout the holidays to dedicate to lesson planning etc. I fret about making sure we are reaching all of the education standards required but the government. I get concerned that I might be stifling LittleBee's education rather than enhancing it. But that usually only lasts one day... then I am gently reminded just by watching her learn, discover and create, that we are doing ok.
I have a few ideas of things that we might achieve this term... a look into local history, an environmental study, sewing and finally starting on our little garden patch out the back. LittleBee will be starting an Auslan course this term too which is very exciting. Now I just need to gather my motivation to make all of these wonderful ideas a reality for our little school and our wonderful Pupil!
Here's to Term 2!
