Getting back into routine has been very hard with this new baby. It has been almost 4 years since I had a new baby, and the other kiddos were only 2 and 3 then, so there was no real school going on.
Now I have one in kindergarten and one in 2nd grade, and add that all up with a new house, and routine can quickly fly out the window! This was our third week back at our full schedule, and it went pretty good. We saved Friday for our ‘fun’ school this week, and that really helped.
Bop is not quite halfway through her Ambleside readings, so I decided to do two weeks in one until we are finished. I feel like the scheduled books are good enough that I don’t want her to miss them, and she has had no trouble with the extra work. In fact she seems to enjoy it.
They are both still working through Funnix for their phonics program. Bop is nearly done so I printed off the very thick reader for Funnix 2, and that was a strong motivator. She really wants to finish it up and move on now! She can pretty much read anything if she tries, but she isn’t very confident yet so we will just keep going at her pace. CJ is progressing slowly, but I know that one of these days it will all click for him.
Bop is taking a break from Math U See to work on her addition drills. When she is finished with all her drills she is going to win an as-yet-undecided prize. CJ is moving very quickly through his kindergarten math and will be ready for the next book before I get it ordered.
We have been having so much fun living down the street from a park, we visit nearly everyday. This has really added a new dimension to our day that we all look forward to.
She knows she’s cute…
Art and a helicopter. I am pretty sure the helicopter taught him the most, he designed it himself.
Love love love this one. So sweet.
Couldn’t resist. :)
