I don't often do a review of our week.I don't post often enough to do a weekly review lol! But I used my camera a bit this week and thought it would be nice to post them.
School is moving along great in some area’s and slow in others. History and science are still everyone's favorites and we cover A LOT each week. Math is sailing smoothly too. Justin my kindergartener moved up from math k to 1st grade level on his mathletics membership after only having it for a month! I’m glad he is grasping math so well.His older brother does too.On a scale of 1 to 10. 1 meaning I love it and 10 meaning its the worst.Math for me is a 10!So its very nice to see them “get it” so easily.
I am learning more and more that each child is different. My oldest learned to read very quickly and easily. My second son however is … not struggling per se but really taking his time. I mean turtle time here! He can sound out simple words and read simple stories.But as far as progressing to harder words there really isn't much progress at all. I am really glad to be homeschooling so that I can give him all the time and support he needs to process what he has learned and get ready for what's to come.
I am also excited and nervous about the fact that I will be homeschooling three kids FAR sooner than I had anticipated! Both of our sons started to show an interest in and a long enough attention span for schooling right around 6. I assumed (silly me!) that my third child and first daughter Hannah would be the same!Since she is three I figured that would give me three more years till she would be homeschooling! WELL that is just not going to happen! Hannah can already identify and tell you the sound of all the letters,she will look over my shoulder as I read and start sounding out the words(although at this point she doesn't know that's what she is doing).She asks to sit and do school with her brothers and can sit AS LONG if not longer than both!
Aside from the general school update here are some pictures from our week
And last but not least
I hope you have had a great week too!
