Kindergarten: Week 37 (Gardening & Wrap Up)

We’re wrapping it up this week. Not much was done as far as actual work, but we still got a lot done.

We prepared our seedlings a few weeks ago and let them grow inside before transplanting them outside.

The kids helped with the whole process. We planted parsnips, carrots, beets, and tomatoes… in addition to the strawberries, blueberries, and green onions already growing in the garden this year. Yum!

We also went and visited a community garden which aligned nicely with the Wordly Wise vocabulary curriculum.

And that’s it for gardening! See, told you it was short. We took the rest of the week off for wrapping up and just having fun.

We had a tea party!

We also visited Sunflower Farm.

Got up close to a peacock.

Ran the zipline.

Built towers with humongous legos.

And rode the horses.

Then we cleaned up and reorganized their room

and the homeschool room.

Once we were finished organizing, I snapped some pictures to memorialize the one time it’ll be clean for the year. Click here for a larger picture.

The blue pocket chart is going to be used for a Spelling Wizard wall for first grade. I have small phonetic tiles just for the occasion.

Today marks the last day of Kindergarten!

Instead of a graduation party, we did a “migration party.” Since he is more aptly migrating into the first grade.

I made a no-refined-sugar butterfly cake to mark the occasion. J was thrilled! So proud of his accomplishments this year and for little E’s help along the way! Cake recipe. Frosting recipe.

  1. That is awesome! You are such a great teacher/organizer and it shows in your classroom and in your kids. Way to go Jaden for migrating to 1st grade! ☺️

  2. This was great to read your posts each week. I have thoroughly enjoyed what you have done this year. And quite a successful year it was. I am a newbie homeschool mom just dipping my toe in this year. My oldest will be 5 and starting kindergarten this September. I have chosen KONOS. Your site has been such an inspiration to me. Also, seeing how you have incorporated your daughter gives me encouragement, as my youngest is 3. I am very apprehensive as to what to do with him while I teach, believing he is too young to be involved. But you have proven just the opposite with your daughter. Thank you for sharing and the faithfulness to your children will not go without reward.
