One thing I learned from last week, is that the boys were not interested in the summer theme that I had chose.  Which made me realize that if I want the boys to enjoy learning, then I should help them learn about the things that interest them. 

Thus, one day last week I asked the boys what they wanted to learn about.  I got the typical boys answers of cars, trucks, motorcycles, fire trucks, trains, etc.

So I worked super hard this weekend, thanks to my husband entertaining the boys, and came up with our new theme of the week Robots!  I even got my act together and checked out library books, both fiction and nonfiction, to go along with our theme.  Thing 1 and Thing 2 have already enjoyed looking at our robot books. 

I am hoping that this weeks theme excites the boys a little more considering that they ask to do “school” every day.  So here is a look at our lesson plan this week.  

Robot Lesson Plan


  • YCR(2) is the You Can Read sight word curriculum that I found online.  Thing 1 has responded well to this curriculum.
  • Most of the activities that are linked (written in blue on the document) are from the website Homeschool Creations.  I am using different parts of the robot preschool pack she has made.

This is an outline of what we are going to attempt this week.  There are some spaces that I will need to fill, but I will get there. 

Happy Learning!
