Our Weekly Themes for Kindergarten

Colton and I finally decided on all our weekly themes for the year.  I have included the dates on the weeks that have to be at a certain time (holidays, awareness weeks, etc) and on the weeks I think need to be covered early on in the year.  The rest we decided to leave up for grabs, I am prepared to spend more then one week on some of the themes if needed so I didn't want to schedule them in and feel like we are behind should we not get to them exactly when I had written.  Most of the weeks have at least a couple of ideas with them some have none.  I plan on using our daily activities everyday regardless of the theme and using a healthy supplement of worksheets.  This is still a learning process for us and I will have to change some stuff around I'm sure but I am pretty happy with our starting point.
