I love planning educational activities for my children. Since my older daughter is in grade four, she has a more structured curriculum. However, with my youngest daughter starting kindergarten, I have begun to plan some more structured activities for her. While I like to follow her lead for certain activities, I do like to plan out some basic learning objectives for each day.

I don’t want to overwhelm my daughter with a lot of structured learning time, so I plan a few “themes” to span over the entire month. From these themes, I’ll schedule 2 – 3 activities per day, as well as do a lesson from the book: Teach Your Child How to Read in 100 Easy LessonsI also ensure that she has large blocks of time open for play and free exploration.

Within this post, you’ll find our focal points for the month. You will also find links to any of activities that I have found online.

Are you excited yet?! I know I am! Here’s what’s planned for September!
