Getting Back in Motion

The South Cobb Homeschool Support Group is still in operation.  However, it has taken a hiatus since the founder, Andrea Hall was on medical leave due to complications in my pregnancy.  God has blessed and she is doing better now.  She is set to deliver on Thursday, October 4, 2012 by C-Section.  

We don't want our group to die so in the interim we are looking for volunteers to continue to carry the torch and get some meetings/activities together (low key, nothing stressful). 

Here is what we need:

Secretary- The only 2 responsibilities of the secretary would be to check the club email and send out a once a week update on any outings that are in the area (they do not have to be sponsored by our group only)

Vice President-  This person would take on the roll of coordinating our activities and meetings until Andrea is back in motion. 

If you would like to do that please call Andrea Hall at 404-644-8391 or email schomeschoolers@thestudyhalledu.com as soon as possible. (Hopefully before Thursday :)  ).

Thanks for volunteering your services!

First Day of Pre-School (Pre-K 4years Old)

The front of our classroom
Praise God we made it!  My daughter Avionne had her first day of homeschool pre-school and we survived.  Between balancing work obligations and her learning we made it through.

Using the www.starfall.com curriculum and Backpack Bear, she learned about the letter Bb and the number 0 as well as two high frequency words see and me.  We will be doing this all week!  I learned a lot today after doing an entry assessment of her learning.  She knows more than I thought and yet there are things that I never knew confused her.  It's amazing and it was fun!

Here are pictures of our classroom (aka the hallway) !

Backpack Bear... our newest member to the classroom!  He makes learning fun and exciting!

Homeschool Meet & Greet 7/17/2012 Meeting Highlights

I would like to thank all of you who attended the Homeschool Meet and Greet. We had about 40 people who attended the South Cobb Homeschool Meet & Greet! What a wonderful turnout! I would again like to acknowledge The Study Hall Education Consulting Compnay, LLC for their business support and providing the snacks. I would also like to extend a special thanks to Jann and Monica who lent their sons to help set up and break down the room and Eva who spontaneously brought extra snacks.

If you were unable to attend, no worries.  There is another meeting scheduled for Monday, July 30, 2012 from 10am-12noon at the South Cobb Library- 805 Clay Road, Mableton 30126. This will be a Back to School Celebration for the kids as well as a planning session for the adults. I would like to know if you all think we should just make it a planning session and postpone the Back to School Celebration... your thoughts?

I will need volunteers to pull off the Back to School Celebration (whenever we decide to have it whether 7/30/2012 or another time in August). Please let me know which crew you (and/or your child if they are old enough) would like to be apart of.

I will need the following:
  • Set up/break down crew
  • Clean up crew
  • Babysitter crew
  • Snack crew 
My initial thoughts for our club is that we have big club meetings/fieldtrips as well as break up into smaller support groups based on the ages of our kids.
For example:
  • Primary Group- PreK - 2nd Grade
  • Elementary Group- 3rd Grade- 5th Grade
  • Middle School Group- 6th Grade- 8th Grade
  • High School Group- 9th Grade-12th Grade
I would love any feedback or questions.  Simply email me at schomechoolers@thestudyhalledu.com .   I look forward to a great year!
