I made a few small changes to our school room, but mostly I just cleaned and organized all of our resources.
Caitlyn was so excited she got up and insisted on doing a couple of subjects before we even had breakfast.
Learning to code, using SCRATCH, has been her favorite so far. She was also intrigued by our new daily notebook, which is in Spanish this year.
