We played a lot of games.

In Bible we reviewed all of our verses for the year.
This picture of our schoolroom wall makes me happy. Not just because it is bright and cheery but because it shows all of the scriptures Cruz has learned over the past school year. In addition to the 26 alphabet verses he also learned Matthew 6:9-13 (The Lord' Prayer), Psalm 100, Psalm 23, and John 3:16-17. That blesses my heart!
Our Bible stories for the week were missionary stories. We had three and Cruz loved them. He has already asked "when can we read more stories about missionaries?". I hope to do that soon.

I found this name writing worksheet at a blog I follow called Confessions of a Homeschooler. We started back in August and I had him write his name each month. I plan to continue this in 1st grade. The blog also has a preschool name writing worksheet that I plan to start with Ben in the fall.

School Memory Pages. I printed off several this year for kindergarten and plan to continue using them over the next several years. They are fun and make a great keepsake from the school year. This page and the next one are from the kindergarten set.
To help me remember all of the great chapter books we read during kindergarten I am including a list here. One of my favorite parts of the year was our nightly read aloud time. We have read some good stories and it has given us some great conversation topics. I love reading with my boys!

I am going to miss kindergarten. It was a lot of fun! I am sure the other grades will be fun too but this first year has been pretty amazing. Next I'll share about our last day of school celebration and the simple little graduation program we had at home one night as a family. I've said it before but I'll say it again- these are precious days!!!
