But, anyway, enough of that. Here is what we did this week!
For Bible we learned about following rules and how Adam and Eve disobeyed God. Positive Action for Christ is still workgin great for us. The only things taht I am having trouble with is some of the songs. The choruses are frequently songs that I don't know, so I am using some of the more commen children's Bible songs that I learned growing up.
We got to do another Download N Go for our unit study this week. Hoppin' Popcorn! Wow, this one has been fun, and I can't believe how much there was to learn about popcorn! You will have to wait until next week for my review on this, but let me just say it was great.
For reading, we have had a lot of reviews to work through. We have stopped using Progressive Phonics for now, and we will get back to that after some of our review periods are over. We are reviewing a neat program called Reading Kingdom and they are still using Read, Write and Type. Bop has finished Read, Write and Type once and now she is going through it again.
I also used some more Kid Scoop pages for Bop to read and practice with. She still thinks that she CAN'T read, even though she reads all the time for school. The connection between school reading and every-day reading just hasn't clicked, I guess. She will ask me to read things that I know she can read, and she has no trouble with it when I point it out. I am not worried about this, I know that one day she will realize that reading is reading, no matter where, and she will take off. I think it's kind of funny, actually. :)
We have several fun things that we are working on for reviews. We have been using Kinderbach for music and loving it. It is perfectly geared for the ages I have, and I really think learning music is important. We are still using Speekee for Spanish, too.
I know. Right now, our Weekly Wrap up sounds pretty much like a list of our current reviews, plus math. And it really is pretty much that. But this is where we are at right now, and I am very thankful for these reviews even if they do keep us hopping and change my plans.
