My kids started school this year. QBoy is now in kindergarten and XGirl is now in transitional kindergarten (a California-specific program for kids with fall birthdays). We are homeschooling this year through our district’s home study program, and I’m super excited (although a bit overwhelmed with the responsibility, as well!).
As a homeschooling family, our back-to-school experience isn’t exactly traditional. But I know that lots of families have already or are preparing to send their kids off to traditional schools in the weeks to come. Fortunately, the bloggers who contribute to the Weekly Kids’ Co-op had lots of great back-to-school ideas to share! Read on for your back-to-school tips, ideas, activities, and printables.
